The Estadio Gigante de Arroyito (Spanish pronunciation: [xiˈɣante ðe aroˈʝito]) is a sports stadium in Rosario, Argentina. It is the home of the Rosario Central football team.

The stadium was originally opened in 1926 and remodeled to concrete in three stages, the first in 1957, the second in 1963 and the third in 1968.
