Samsun 19 Mayıs Stadium (Turkish: Samsun 19 Mayıs Stadyumu) is a multi-purpose stadium in Samsun, Turkey. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Samsunspor, currently playing in the Süper Lig. The stadium holds 19,720 people (all-seater).

The stadium was named after the date May 19, 1919 when Mustafa Kemal Atatürk set foot on land in Samsun to start the national independence movement.


In 2006 the Black Sea club decided to renovate the ground. The capacity was increased by several thousand by adding a second tier to the "marathon side", and all the seats were covered with a roof. Now the all-covered, all-seated stadium has a capacity of 19,720.
