The Thuwunna Youth Training Center Stadium (Burmese: သုဝဏ္ဏ လူငယ် လေ့ကျင့်ရေး ကွင်း), simply known as the Thuwunna Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium located in Yangon, Myanmar. It is the venue of choice for most national and international football and track and field competitions.

This 32,000-seat stadium is smaller but more up-to-date than the Bogyoke Aung San Stadium. It is part of a complex that also includes the Thuwunna National Indoor Stadium.[2]

The stadium's eight-lane running track is the first in Myanmar that conforms to IAAF standards.

From 23 June to 3 July 2012, the stadium hosted 2013 AFC U-22 Asian Cup qualification Group G matches.

The stadium underwent a major renovation and was expanded to host football matches of the 2013 Southeast Asian Games.[4] It also hosted the qualification stage of the 2012 AFF Championship and matches in Group B of the main tournament in 2016.
