Nakivubo Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Kampala, Uganda. It is currently used mostly for football matches and serves as the home venue of SC Villa. The stadium has a capacity of 15,000 people.

The stadium is located in the Central Business District of Kampala City next St .Balikuddembe Market, within a walking distance from the Old Taxi Park.[1] In early 2013, the stadium was closed by the Uganda Revenue Authority over "accumulated debts.".[2]

The stadium was also shut down in May 2011, but re-opened after only a week after payment plans were negotiated.[3] The stadium is now reopened and hosted the third round, second leg of the CAF U-17 Championship, a game between Uganda and Zambia, on September 27, 2014.[4]
