Champion Hill is a football stadium in East Dulwich, South London, in the London Borough of Southwark.

It is the home ground of Dulwich Hamlet, and Fisher FC currently share the ground. 'The Hill' was formerly one of the largest amateur grounds in England, with attendances often reaching 20,000 and beyond. However, Dulwich Hamlet fell on hard times, so much of the land they owned was sold for development of a Sainsbury's supermarket. The subsequent stadium was previously the training pitch before the 1980s. During the 1948 Summer Olympics, (Old) Champion Hill hosted football matches.

As well as being the home of Dulwich Hamlet, and Fisher, the ground is also used for other matches, including county cup ties, and county league matches. The ground is also now used by Millwall's ladies team, Millwall Lionesses L.F.C..
