The Tamale Sports Stadium is a multipurpose stadium in Tamale, Ghana, used mostly for football matches, and serves as the home stadium of Real Tamale United. The stadium which hosted some matches during the 2008 African Cup of Nations has a capacity of about 20,000[1][2] and it was completed in 2008 by the Shanghai Construction Group of China.

The stadium looks similar to the Sekondi-Takoradi Stadium.

In December 2017, Tamale Sports Stadium was renamed Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium after the late Aliu Mahama, the former Vice President of Ghana.[3]
