Stadion Šubićevac is a small association football stadium in Šibenik, Croatia. It serves as home stadium for the HNK Šibenik football club.[1] The stadium has a capacity of 8,000 (2,500 seated). It is named after the historic Croatian noble house of Šubić. The stadium was in the Communist era known as Rade Končar stadium. Last time it was renovated was for the 1979 Mediterranean Games.

The construction of a new stadium began in early 1946, as part of a sports complex which featured a football pitch, athletics track, courts for tennis, basketball and volleyball and concrete stands.[1] The location chosen for the project was an area called Šubićevac, which is where Rade Končar, a notable World War II anti-fascist fighter, was executed by the Italian army along with 25 other members of the resistance.[1] The stadium was hence named Rade Končar Stadium (Croatian: Stadion Rade Končara) in memory of him.

The first phase of the construction went on for two years, and the stadium broke ground on 1 May 1948, when a friendly was played between HNK Šibenik and Hajduk Split.[1] Several football games as a part of the 1979 Mediterranean games, hosted by nearby Split, were also played on the stadium.
