The Autostade (the English name Automotive Stadium was rarely used) was a Canadian football stadium in the Victoriatown neighborhood of Montreal, Quebec that stood at the north-west corner of the Cité du Havre sector of the Expo 67 site. The stadium was primarily the home of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes and hosted the 1969 Grey Cup.

The final sporting event held in the stadium was a Alouettes vs. Toronto Argonauts game on September 5, 1976 but the Alouettes continued to hold practices there into at least October. Dismantling of the stadium began in February 1978 and demolition was completed by the end of the year.
