The Joaquin F. Enriquez Memorial Sports Complex is a multi-use sports complex in Zamboanga City, Philippines. Its main stadium is currently used mostly for football matches and hosts the home matches of Zamboanga FA. The stadium holds around 10,000 people.

A sports complex of 57,500 square metres considered one of the most modern in the country. Ten contractors and 1,500 workers joined hands to complete the facility in time for the 1992 Palarong Pambansa which had its opening ceremony in March 6. Total construction cost was a little over P64-million. The latest synthetic rubberized coating known as "Super AG" was used for the oval, only the second in the world after one in Saudi Arabia.

In 2005, it is the main venue of the National PRISAA Games which gathered athletes from all over the private schools in the country. And in 2007, the PASUC-National Sports Olympics, a competition between Public colleges and university varsity teams.
