Estadio Padre Ernesto Martearena is a multi-use stadium in Salta, Argentina. The stadium, built for the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship, holds 20,408 people and was opened in 2001. It is now the home ground of football club Juventud Antoniana, which plays in the country's third level. It is also the former home of another local football club, Central Norte, which now plays in the fourth level.

While it is mainly used for football, the Argentina national rugby union team has played thrice at the stadium—in 2005 against Italy and in 2009 and 2013 against England, both wins for Los Pumas.[1]
