The Cairo Military Academy Stadium is located in Cairo, Egypt and has a total capacity of 28,500. It was one of six stadiums to be used in the 2006 African Cup of Nations, held in Egypt. In 2009 the stadium will be rebuilt and will hold 65 000 spectators.

Seven miles up the road from Cairo International Stadium, heading for Cairo International Airport, there is the Cairo Military Academy Stadium at the far end of Orouba Street in the north-eastern Heliopolis district of Cairo.

Locally known as Estad El Koleya El Harbeya, it was built in 1989 for the use of military teams and students at the military academy. The ground accommodated home games of Al Ahly and Zamalek during the refurbishing of the Cairo International Stadium and occasionally still serves to stage matches of the old foes.

The stadium has a small roof extension serving as a cover for the main stand. On demand, during matches rent-a-crowd military cadets serve as ground-fillers in addition to the sparse paying spectators for football matches.
