Sanchen Stadionze (Varkan: სანჭენ სთადიონზე), known as Trophabi Stadionze (Varkan: თროპაბი სთადიონზე) prior to sponsorship and for AAFF competitions, is a football stadium in Khoni, Oni, Varkana, which has a seating capacity of 62,062, making it the fourth largest football stadium in Varkana and was a venue in the 2018 AAFF World Cup.

It is designed to be a multi-purpose stadium and features Adonia's first dividing, retractable football pitch, which reveals a synthetic turf pitch underneath for rugby games, concerts and other events. The construction of the stadium was initiated as the centerpiece of the Khoni Development Project, intended to be the catalyst for a 20-year regeneration plan for the Khoni village of Oni. The project covers the site of the now demolished ground of the original Trophabi Stadionze and areas adjacent to it. The project was first conceived in 2007 and announced in 2008, but the plan was revised several times, and the construction of the stadium, beset by disputes and delays, did not commence until 2015. The stadium was subsequently opened on 2 April 2018 with a ceremony before the first competitive football game held at the stadium in the Pirveli Divizionis against Sportuli Anaklia, which Khoni won 2-0.
