The Stade Ibn Batouta (Arabic: ملعب ابن بطوطة‎) is a multi-use stadium in Tangier, Morocco. It is used mostly for football matches. The stadium has a capacity of 45,000 people. It serves as the new home of IR Tanger, replacing Stade de Marchan.

It was inaugurated on April 26, 2011. On July 27, the stadium hosted the 2011 Trophée des champions, in which Marseille beat Lille 5-4.

It was one of the confirmed host stadiums for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, which was to be hosted by Morocco until it was stripped of its hosting rights.
