The Sector 16 Stadium (Punjabi: ਸੇਕ੍ਟਰ ੧੬ ਸਟੇਡਿਯਮ, Hindi: सेक्टर १६ स्तादियम) is a cricket stadium in Chandigarh, India.

It hosted its first ODI match in January 1985 and its only Test match in 1990.

It has hosted only four matches. The likes of Kapil Dev, Chetan Sharma and Yograj Singh started playing cricket at the Sector 16 Stadium. It fell out of favour to the nearby Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, (Mohali) cricket ground.

After the stadium in Mohali was built, there was no first-class cricket at the Sector 16 Stadium for 10 years before Haryana ended the barren spell by playing the Ranji Trophy Plate League semi-final in 2004/05. But after 14 years, India and Australia played a match in October 2007.
