The Peace and Friendship Stadium is an arena on Ethnarch Makarios Avenue in the Neo Faliro section of the city of Piraeus, near Athens, Greece.

The stadium was built in the early 1980s, on landfill near the Karaiskakis Stadium. It is commonly known as “S.E.F.” from its Greek initials – Stadio Eirinis kai Filias. It was inaugurated by then-Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou on February 16, 1985 and was first used for a major event for the European Indoor Athletics Championship in March of that same year.

The Peace and Friendship Stadium is used for basketball, athletics, volleyball, team handball, weightlifting, boxing, wrestling, gymnastics etc. It has also been the venue of many concerts and other artistic performances.

Its capacity is 12,000 for athletics, 15,000 for basketball and 20,000 for concerts. It is the home of Olympiakos BC. since 1992.
