Stade Sylvio Cator is a multi-purpose stadium in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. It is currently used mostly for association football matches, and is turfed with artificial turf. The stadium bears the name of Haitian Olympic medalist and footballer Sylvio Cator. It was named after him in 1952. Before then the stadium was called the Parc Leconte. and then the Stade Paul-Magloire. With a capacity of 10,500, the structure is undergoing renovation and expansion as of August 2011. It was partly destroyed by the earthquake in Haiti in January 2010, and a tent-city sprouted within its confines. It is also where the Haitian national team play its home games.
