Suphanburi Provincial Stadium (Thai: สนามกีฬากลางจังหวัดสุพรรณบุรี), formerly known as Suphan Buri World War II Stadium (สนามกีฬาสงครามโลกครั้งที่ 2 จังหวัดสุพรรณบุรี), is a multi-purpose stadium and the home of Suphanburi F.C., located in Suphan Buri, Suphan Buri Province, Thailand. It was opened in 1947 and expanded in 2001.[citation needed]

After Suphanburi F.C. came back to the top level as promoted to 2013 Thai Premier League, the stadium was re-expanded during the early time of the 2013 season as the northern stand was additionally built (only three sides beforehand) and entirely seated. The capacity then turned out to be 25,000 (standing (east and south) and seated (north and west)). Subsequent to the 2015 season (2015 Thai Premier League) and prior to the 2016 season (2016 Thai League T1), the roof of the main stand located on the west was renovated as required by the AFC. Since January 2018, to lift up the club's standards and follow the AFC's club licensing enforced 2019 onwards, the stadium became all-seater bringing the capacity down to 15,000.[citation needed]

Its historical highest attendance was 25,709, for Suphanburi winning 2–1 over Muangthong United in 2015 Thai Premier League on 4 April 2015.[citation needed]

On 1 February 2014, the stadium also held the match of 2014 Kor Royal Cup (acting as Thai super cup), where Buriram United won the trophy by beating Muangthong United 1–0.
