Victoria Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Gibraltar. It is currently used mostly for football matches, but also hosts the yearly Gibraltar Music Festival. It is located close to the Gibraltar Airport just off Winston Churchill Avenue. It was named after the wife of Gibraltarian philanthropist John Mackintosh.

The ground has also hosted cricket matches since 1993. The ground hosted its first cricket match when Marylebone Cricket Club visited Gibraltar in 1993 between Gibraltar and the MCC.

Following the Gibraltar Football Association's admittance as a full member of UEFA in May 2013, it has been proposed to build the Europa Point Stadium to replace the Victoria Stadium as Gibraltar's national stadium.[1] The Europa Point plans have been scrapped by the local government of Gibraltar.
