The Providence Stadium is a cricket stadium in Guyana that replaced the Bourda as the national stadium. The ground is also called the  Guyana National Stadium  and was established in 2007 to specifically host the Super 8 matches of the ODI World Cup. It is owned by the Guyana Government and operated by Guyana Cricket Board.

The stadium witnessed the most iconic World Cup spell when it hosted its first-ever International match between South Africa and Sri Lanka. Lankan slingy pacer Lasith Malinga charged down on the African batters as he became the first bowler to take four wickets in four balls. It also hosted five other Super 8 matches in the tournament. 

It has been a multi-sport stadium with it being hosting the football and rugby matches apart from cricket too. It hosted the rugby sevens competition at the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games. Its construction cost was estimated at $25,000,000.
