The Saida International Stadium (Arabic: إستاد صيدا الدولي) is a 22,600 capacity multi-purpose stadium in Sidon, Lebanon.

It is currently mostly used for local and international football matches. The stadium also has athletics facilities.
The stadium is located at the main northern entrance of the city. Built over the sea, Saida International Stadium is one of the closest stadiums to the sea in the world.
