The Minyuan Stadium, in Tianjin, People's Republic of China, was used mostly for football matches and hosted the home matches of Tianjin Teda F.C. until the TEDA Football Stadium opened in 2004. The stadium held 18,000 spectators. Eric Liddell helped build the stadium when he was a missionary in Tianjin in 1926, modelling it on Stamford Bridge of London, which was Liddell's favourite athletics venue. The Minyuan Stadium was demolished in 2012.
