Stade du 5 Juillet 1962 (Arabic: ملعب 5 يوليو 1962) (the name refers to 5 July 1962, the day Algeria declared independence from France), also known as El Djezair Stadium (Arabic: ملعب 5 يوليو بالجزائر), is a football and athletics stadium located in Algiers, Algeria. The stadium was inaugurated in 1972 with a capacity of 105,000. It served as the main stadium of the 1975 Mediterranean Games, the 1978 All-Africa Games, and the 2007 All-Africa Games. The stadium was one of two venues of the 1990 African Cup of Nations (the other venue was the stade 9 Mai 1956 in Annaba). It hosted 9 matches of the tournament, including the final match, which had a record attendance of approximately 120,000 spectators. In the final match, the home team Algeria defeated Nigeria 1-0 to win the tournament. After a formal compliance with current safety standards in 1999, the stadium was reduced to 102,000 capacity, and following a new phase of renovation in 2003, the stadium's capacity has been reduced further to its current capacity of 96,000.
