Veritas Stadion is a football (soccer) stadium in Turku, Finland. It is situated in the district of Kupittaa, in an area dedicated to sporting venues. The stadium serves as the home venue for both FC Inter and TPS, the two teams from Turku that play in Finland's premier football league, the "Veikkausliiga".

The stadium has a capacity of 9,000 spectators, with 6,400 seats and 2,600 standing places. In Veritas Stadion there are two stands opposite to each other. The old Olympic stand (Olympiakatsomo) was built for the 1952 Summer Olympics and the new, modern main stand was ready in 2003. After that the name of the stadium was changed to "Veritas Stadion", having formerly been known simply as the "Kupittaa football stadium" ("Kupittaan jalkapallostadion").

The old Kupittaa Stadium's record attendance was approximately 15,000 spectators for the 1987 UEFA Cup match between Turun Palloseura and Italian giants Internazionale. The Veritas Stadion's attendance record of 8,937 spectators was set at the 2008 local derby between Turun Palloseura and FC Inter.

The stadium is going to be expanded with stands (with 1600+ seats) in both ends to meet the demands for the 2009 UEFA Women's Championship.
