Samsun 19 Mayıs Stadium, also known as Canik 19 Mayıs Stadium, (Turkish: Samsun 19 Mayıs Stadyumu or Canik 19 Mayıs Stadyumu) is a multi-purpose stadium in Canik district of Samsun, northern Turkey. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Samsunspor. The stadium has a seating capacity for 19,720 spectators.

The stadium was named in remembrance of the landing of Mustafa Kemal Pasha (1881–1938) in Samsun on May 19, 1919 to start the national independence movement.

Renovation[edit]

In 2006 the Black Sea club decided to renovate the ground. The capacity was increased by several thousand by adding a second tier to the "marathon side", and all the seats were covered with a roof. Now the all-covered, all-seated stadium has a capacity of 19,720.

International events hosted[edit]

The venue went onto host the football events of the 2017 Summer Deaflympics.[2]
