Stade Ibn Batouta (Arabic: ملعب ابن بطوطة) is a multi-use stadium in Tangier, Morocco. It is used mostly for football matches and big events as ceremonies or concerts. The stadium has a capacity of 45,000 people. It serves as the new home of IR Tanger, replacing the former Stade de Marchan. The stadium is named after Ibn Battuta.
It was one of the confirmed host stadiums for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, which was to be hosted by Morocco until it was stripped of its hosting rights. It was one of the venues in Morocco's failed bid for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. It would've hosted the Quarter-Finals if Morocco had been awarded the World Cup.
