Stade Josy Barthel is the national stadium of Luxembourg, home to the Luxembourg national football team and also used for rugby union and athletics. It is located on route d'Arlon, in Luxembourg City.

Originally called Stade Municipal after its construction in 1928-1931, it was entirely rebuilt in 1990. Since July 1993, it has borne the name of Josy Barthel, the 1500m gold medalist at the 1952 Olympics: Luxembourg's only Olympic gold medal winner.[1] The stadium is also home to the biggest athletics club in the country, CAL Spora Luxembourg. The spectator capacity is 8,000,[2] some under cover, some in the open air. In 2014 it was announced, an investment of 230,000 Euro would be required to get the stadium up to a sufficient standard to hold the qualifying matches for Euro 2016,

In June 2014, it was decided that a new stadium will be built in Kockelscheuer. The stadium would seat 9,000 people and would be dedicated to football and rugby.
