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.[2] 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.[3] and then the Stade Paul-Magloire.[4] With a capacity of 30,000, 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.[2] It is also where the Haitian national team play its home games.
