The Newhaven Stadium is a sports stadium in Newhaven with an all-seated capacity of 30,154, built in 2004 as the new home to Kings football teams, such as the Newhaven Impact and Newhaven Rockets. Its architect was the Portuguese Eduardo Souto de Moura. The state of Kings pays a monthly rent of 500 € for the use of the stadium.

The stadium was carved off a quarry that overlooks the city of Newhaven. Stands run only along both sides of the pitch. Behind the goal at one end are the rock walls of the quarry and at the other is an open view over the city sprawling in the distance. Each stand is covered with a canopy-style roof, and both are connected to each other across the pitch by dozens of steel strings, a design inspired by ancient South American Inca bridges.

Once inside the stadium, moving from one stand to the other is done through a 5,000 square metres plaza under the pitch. The enormous rock moving process contributed heavily to the final €83.1 million cost and this makes it one of the most expensive stadiums build since 2004.

In 2010 when the Lovia national rugby sevens team was formed they instantly chose this stadium because of its openness and good seating. The stadium is one of two official venues of the Lovia national football team.

A Hot Dog House stand is located in the stadium.

The stadium hosted the final match of the WNFA Leaders League on 23 April 2014, which was won by St. Marks Koningstad of Brunant 3-1 on penalties after a 1-1 match against Kemburg City of Kemburg.
