The 1 November 1954 Stadium (Arabic: ملعب أول نوفمبر 1954, French: Stade du 1er Novembre 1954) is a multi-use stadium in Tizi Ouzou, Algeria. It is used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of JS Kabylie. The stadium holds 20,000 people.[1]

The stadium is named for the date of the founding of the National Liberation Front, which obtained independence for Algeria from France.

Following the death of footballer Albert Ebossé Bodjongo, the Algerian Football Federation suspended all football indefinitely and ordered the closure of the stadium.[2]
