Stadion u Kranjčevićevoj ulici (Kranjčević Street Stadium), also known as Stadion Concordije between 1921 and 1945, is a multi-purpose stadium located in Trešnjevka neighbourhood, in the Croatian capital of Zagreb. It is mainly used for football matches and was historically the home ground of NK Zagreb until their eviction from the ground in 2018. More recently the stadium has been the home ground for Croatian First League side NK Lokomotiva. In addition, NK Rudeš use the stadium for selected matches, particularly Croatian First League games. First opened in 1921, it has undergone many renovations and facelifts, with its current layout dating back to the 1987 Summer Universiade renovation. The Croatia national football team played only once at the stadium in a 3–0 friendly game win against South Korea on 13 March 1996. With its reduced capacity from 2008, the stadium can hold 8,850 people, which makes it the second biggest stadium in Zagreb, behind Stadion Maksimir. In 2018, the stadium was refurbished with chairs installed in the eastern grandstand and a new hybrid lawn installed, leaving it with a seating capacity of 5,350 seats.
The stadium at what was then called Tratinska cesta (English: Tratinska road) began construction in 1910s and was completed in 1921. At the time of its completion it was the biggest stadium in Zagreb and was owned by Concordia, one of the three prominent Zagreb-based football clubs in the interwar period (the other two being Građanski and HAŠK). In 1931 the first floodlit match held in Zagreb was played at the stadium, in which Zagreb XI beat Real Madrid 2–1, with two goals from Ico Hitrec and a consolation goal for Madrid scored by Eugenio.
