Yuexiushan Stadium (Chinese: 越秀山体育场) is a multi-purpose stadium in Guangzhou, China, named for its location at the foot of Yuexiu Hill. It is currently used mostly for football matches.

The stadium was built in 1950 with a capacity of 35,000 people.[1] However, following renovation and the installation of fixed seating in 2012, the capacity is now 18,000.[2] It serves as the home stadium for Guangzhou R&F of the Chinese Super League and sometimes the reserve team of Guangzhou Evergrande.

The stadium is best reached by taking Guangzhou Metro Line 2 to Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall Station.
