The ‪Mahamasina Municipal Stadium‬ in Antananarivo, Madagascar, has a capacity of 23,000 and is mainly used for football and rugby. The ground was the site of a stampede in 2005 during a match between USJF Ravinala and South African team Kaizer Chiefs, in which two people died. The stadium sits next to Lac Anosy, an artificial lake built as a reservoir for a textile mill in the 19th century. A memorial to soldiers who died in the First World War is now on the central island.
