Le stade Geoffroy-Guichard, surnommé « le Chaudron » est un stade sportif français situé à Saint-Étienne, construit en 1930. Il est situé au nord de la ville dans le quartier de Carnot Le Marais.
C'est le stade où se jouent les matchs de football de l'AS Saint-Étienne. À l'origine, il s'agit d'un vaste terrain de 40 000 m2 acheté par Geoffroy Guichard, fondateur des magasins Casino, qui désirait un stade pour son équipe.
