Stadion Rođeni is a football stadium in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is located in the northern part of the city. It takes its name from the nickname of FK Velež. It is primarily the home of FK Velež Mostar. The stadium holds 7,000 supporters. It has a little east and a big north tribune built in 2006. In 2008, a big west tribune is under construction.

Due to the divisions between the Bosniak and Croat Mostar territories, FK Velež Mostar lost its previous home ground of Bijeli Brijeg Stadium. This stadium was largely used by FK Velež Mostar during the glory days for the club, when they triumphed in an 1981 and 1986 Yugoslav cups.
