The Habib Bouakeul Stadium (Arabic: ملعب الحبيب بوعقل‎) is a multi-use stadium in Oran, Algeria. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of ASM Oran. The stadium holds 20,000 people.


The stadium was built in 1928 in the Les Amandiers district (now Haï El-Louz) of Oran under the name of the Stade Alenda. It was renovated on 19 December 1948, when its name was changed to Stade Vincent Monréal; it was the biggest stadium in Oran at the time. After the independence of Algeria, it was renamed Stade Habib Bouakeul in commemoration of Habib Bouakeul, a martyr of the Algeria War.

The stadium was equipped with artificial turf to replace natural grass; a newer turf was installed in 2013.
