Stadion Brügglifeld is a multi-purpose stadium in Aarau, Switzerland. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of FC Aarau. The current capacity is 9249 seats, divided into 1499 covered seats (of which 1'187 seats are in the main stand and 312 additional seats on the smaller grandstand). The remainder is an uncovered terracing area which has space for 7,750. The away supporters are housed behind one goal, to the right of where the players run out. This has space for 1,500.

The stadium was opened on 12 October 1924 with a friendly game against local side FC Zürich. A new main stand was added in 1982 and in the 1990s the addition of a smaller grandstand and a complete renovation of the standing areas. The stadium is on the municipality of Suhr.

In 2008 the latest proposals were put forward for a new urban development to include a new home for FC Aarau. The Mittelland Arena, in the the heart of Central Park in Aarau, should be used to cover 12,500 seats. On 25 September 2005 the proposal for the new development, including the football stadium and a shopping centre, were rejected by the people of Aarau in a referendum. FC Aarau Ltd and the city council are currently working on a new solution for the club as the current stadium is considered to be not good enough for top flight football. The Swiss Football Association are unhappy at its use in the top flight.
