Stadion Allmend is a multi-purpose stadium in Lucerne, Switzerland. Its current primary use is for football matches. The stadium has a capacity of 25000, although security concerns mandate limiting audiences to 15000.

The stadium has been home to FC Lucerne since 1934. Over the years the stadium has undergone some transformations. In 1957 a new stand with 2500 seats was added. Between 1981 and 1983 a new grandstand was built. In 1995 the club redeveloped the North Stand.

In 2007 the Swiss Football Association decided that the stadium was no longer good enough to be used in the Swiss Super League. In light of this the club entered negotiations with the city council of Lucerne and also the private sector in order to raise the finance with which to build a new stadium. The contract has been awarded to local architects Daniele Marques and Ivan Buhler.

Apart from the planned football stadium, Swissporarena, (capacity 17,000) there are also plans for a sports centre with a gymnasium, indoor pool and fitness center. Alongside this there will also be two large residential units built in order to help the funding of this. The project was aproved at a referendum on 24 February 2008.

On 30 November 2008, the voters were given a chance to approve some minor alterations. This was also passed by the people of Lucerne. The project is due to begin construction in summer 2009.
