The Stade Ernest-Wallon (usually called "stade des Sept Deniers") is a multi-purpose stadium in Toulouse, France, used mostly for rugby union games. It is currently the home of rugby union club Stade Toulousain, the first French rugby club with one million fans across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Since 2020 it has also been home to Rugby League team Toulouse Olympique, currently of the Super league. The stadium was built in the late 1980s and it was recently renovated. It has a capacity of 19,500. The stadium however is not always suitable for big games. For the larger fixtures, such as championships play-offs or European Rugby Champions Cup games, the fixture may be moved to Stadium Municipal, which has nearly double the capacity.

From 2020, following an agreement reached with the Stade Toulousain, owner of the facilities, the rugby league club Toulouse Olympique also plays its home matches there.

The Stade Ernest-Wallon was used to host the rugby league international fixture between France and England, in which England defeated France 56–8. The stadium once again hosted rugby league on 31 October 2009, seeing a 2009 Gillette Four Nations game between France and New Zealand, resulting in a 62–12 win for the Kiwis in front of 12,412 spectators. It also hosted the French Super League side Catalans Dragons, as part of their initiative to expand club rugby league in France, in 2013: a sellout crowd, many of whom carried banners supporting local side Toulouse Olympique's bid to enter the Super League, saw the Dragons lose 22–21 to Hull Kingston Rovers.

On 12 February 2022, The Stadium played host to Toulouse Olympique's first ever game in Super League against Huddersfield Giants, the Giants winning 42-12 in front of a crowd of 5,238.
