Tianhe Stadium (Chinese: 天河体育场) is a multi-purpose stadium in Tianhe District, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. It is currently used for football matches.


Construction of the stadium began on 4 July 1984 at the former site of Guangzhou Tianhe Airport.[1] It was opened in August 1987 for the 1987 National Games of China.[3] It hosted the final of the inaugural FIFA Women's World Cup in 1991. The stadium has hosted the home matches of local football team Guangzhou since 2011. In February 2016, the club obtained the operating rights of the stadium from Guangzhou Sports Bureau for the next twenty years.[4]

The stadium hosted the football finals of the 2010 Asian Games and the final match of the AFC Champions League twice, in 2013 and 2015.


The stadium is best reached by taking Guangzhou Metro Line 1 to Tianhe Sports Center Station (East Gate), Line 3 to Linhexi Station (North Gate) and Line 1 or 3 to Tiyu Xilu Station (West Gate and South Gate).
