Constant Vanden Stock Stadium (French: Stade Constant Vanden Stock, Dutch: Constant Vanden Stockstadion) is a football stadium in the municipality of Anderlecht, Brussels. It is home to R.S.C. Anderlecht.

It is in 1917 that Anderlecht installed on the border of Parc du Meir / Meirpark (later Astrid Park), in a new stadium they built (with only one stand made of wood). They called it Émile Versé Stadium in the name of a generous patron. Later, concrete stands were set up. Though, in 1983, the stadium was completely rebuilt and took the name of the president Constant Vanden Stock. Its capacity was decreased to 28,063 (1,583 of which in business seats and 406 in V.I.P. boxes). There are still standup places behind the two goals but during European competitions, the stadium is all-seated (decreasing capacity).

The stadium address is Avenue Théo Verbeecklaan 2, B-1070 Anderlecht. It is located near Saint-Guidon / Sint-Guido metro station. Rival supporters must stop at Aumale for UEFA Champions League matches (due to security measures).

The stadium hosts a one-star restaurant (Le Saint-Guidon) and a cafeteria, as well as the official club fanshop.
