Nice Stadium is an ultramodern venue, located close to the Mediterranean, built in 2013 to replace the city’s previous facility, the ageing and outdated Stade du Ray. Home to the football club OGC Nice, this new stadium with its magnificent architecture includes more than 10,000 sqm of exhibition space and has been designed in line with environmentally responsible standards, illustrated by its 7,000 sqm of rooftop solar panels and its system for harvesting and reusing rainwater.
With Nice Stadium, the capital of the Côte d’Azur region has a modular, multifunctional showcase venue for cultural and sporting events. In addition to the French and European matches of OGC Nice, the Stadium has hosted a number of high-level events, including certain matches for Euro 2016, as well as several matches for the French football team.
Thanks to its vast available spaces, Nice Stadium is also home to the National Sports Museum, visited by more than 70,000 people each year.
Capacity: 36,178 spectators.
