Stadio Omobono Tenni (Italian pronunciation: [ˈstaːdjo omoˈbɔːno 'tɛnni]) is a football stadium in Treviso, Italy. It is currently the home of Treviso F.B.C. 1993. The stadium was built in 1933 and holds 10,001. After the inauguration in 1933, a friendly match between Treviso F.B.C. and Udinese was held, which was followed by a friendly against the Italian National Team. In the 1940s and 1950s the capacity of the stadium was of 12,000 seats.

On 24 January 1960 the stadium played host to a rugby league international between Italy and Australia. In front of a small crowd of just 3,105 the Kangaroos, playing the 37th and last game of their 1959-60 Kangaroo tour of Great Britain and France, defeated the home side 67–22 to complete a two-game sweep of the Italians to end the Kangaroo Tour on a high note.[1]

The stadium is also temporary home to A.S. Cittadella for at least the 2008-09 Serie B season, until their own stadium, Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato, is renovated to meet Serie B stadiums criteria.
