Neo GSZ Stadium or Gymnastic Club Zenon Stadium (Greek: Γυμναστικός Σύλλογος Ζήνων;Γ.Σ.Ζ.) is a multi-use stadium in Larnaca, Cyprus. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of AEK Larnaca FC and Alki Larnaca FC. The stadium holds 13,032 people and the owner of that stadium is the Gymnastic Club Zeno which took its name from the native philosopher of Larnaca Zeno of Citium. Before the merge of Pezoporikos and EPA into the new football club AEK, it was the home of those two clubs.

In 2006 it hosted the Cypriot Football Cup final between APOEL Nicosia and AEK Larnaca, which APOEL won 3-2. However the greatest event that was hosted in the Larnaca Stadium was the final for the 1998 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship between the Republic of Ireland and Germany which ended in a 1-1 draw with Eire winning 4-3 on penalties.
