The construction of the new stadium ended in April 2015. This new stadium will notably host UEFA Euro 2016 football matches.
Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the firm that designed the Olympic stadium in Beijing, this streamlined structure will break with the "cauldron" concept to achieve a rigorous balance between functionality and site integration.
Construction of the new stadium, with a capacity of 40,000 seats, designed, financed and built by the VINCI and Fayat Groups under a 30-year PPP including maintenance and operation, got under way at the end of 2012 and handover is scheduled in April 2015.
