Kleánthis Vikelídis Stadium (Greek: Γήπεδο Κλεάνθης Βικελίδης) is a stadium in Thessaloniki, Greece. It was built in 1951 as the home stadium of Aris FC, one of the most popular soccer teams in Greece. For many years, the ground's official name was Aris Stadium, until it was renamed in honor of Kleanthis Vikelidis, a player of Aris in the 1940s. However, most commonly it is referred to as Harilaou Stadium, after the district where it is built. The stadium's capacity is 18,303 seated and it was renovated for the 2004 Summer Olympics, where it served as a training ground for the football competition. Its facilities include dressing rooms, a gym, a swimming pool, VIP boxes, a VIP lounge, a restaurant with pitch view and rooms for the press.
