Plovdiv Stadium Panorama, Bulgaria

Plovdiv Stadium (Bulgarian: Стадион „Пловдив"), formerly known as 9th September Stadium (Bulgarian: "9-ти септември"), is a multi-purpose stadium in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. It is currently used mostly for athletics championships. The stadium holds 55,000. The stadium was built in 1950.

The stadium initially had a capacity of about 30,000 spectators and had lights. Near the end of the 1980s a substantial renovation and expansion began, but was never finished due to the lack of funding. The stadium's present condition is dire, with no UEFA licence, no lights and only a few games played there (mostly junior teams). It is the only stadium in Bulgaria with two-storey stands. The biggest events held in the stadium were the 1990 Lepa Brena, 1999 Metallica concert and the Athletic World Championship for Juniors in 1990.
