The Moi International Sports Centre (abbreviated as MISC, locally referred to as the Kasarani stadium) is a multi-purpose stadium in KasaraniKenya. It was built in 1987 for the All-Africa Games held in Nairobi. The facilities include a 80,000 seat stadium with a running track and a pitch used for football and rugby union, a competition size swimming pool, an indoor arena and a 108-bed capacity hotel. Located at 1,612 metres above sea level, it is slightly above 1 mile in altitude.

The stadium was closed in January 2010 for renovation works worth KSh.900 million/= and funded by a grant to the Government of Kenya by the Government of China. Chinese firm, Sheng Li Engineering Construction Company Limited was contracted to conduct the renovations and the stadium was reopened in March 2012 after completion of the renovations.

In April and May 2014, after terror attacks in Nairobi and Mombasa, the main stadium was used as a screening center as part of ‘Operation Usalama Watch’ during which thousands of people were rounded up and arrested by the Kenya Police.

The stadium hosted the 2017 World U18 Championships in Athletics and 2021 World Athletics U20 Championships.
