Bercy Arena

Bercy Arena
le 19 July 2021

Bercy Arena is an iconic venue for culture and sport in Paris and across France, recognisable with its pyramid design that stands out from the landscape of Paris’ 12th arrondissement. Built in 1984, this venue hosts not only high-level sports events, such as the Rolex Paris Masters, an international men’s tennis tournament from the ATP Tour, and the final rounds of the 2018 European women’s handball championship, but also concerts with leading French and international performers, from Madonna to Daft Punk, Johnny Hallyday and Paul McCartney.

Renovated between 2014 and 2015 to modernise its infrastructure, the Bercy Arena ticks all of the boxes today for hosting major competitions and cultural events. Bercy has nothing left to prove: since it was inaugurated, this multi-sports venue has already welcomed more than 30 million spectators at hundreds of events, from athletics to basketball, ice hockey and motocross.

Capacity: 15,000 spectators
