Stade de Bordeaux
UEFA capacity: 42,000
Tenants: FC Girondins de Bordeaux
Opened: May 2015

• The construction of the €184m Stade de Bordeaux began at the start of 2013 and was completed just 26 months later, the stadium hosting its first game on the last weekend of the 2014/15 Ligue 1 season.

• It has been designed by Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron, the team behind Fußball Arena München, and features a 'floating' roof supported by 900 stanchions, designed to resemble local Landes-pine posts.

• The effect is a venue which Bordeaux's mayor Alain Juppé described as "a piece of art which will enrich our cultural heritage" at the arena's inauguration in May 2015.

• Located between a man-made lake and the Garonne river in north Bordeaux, it has replaced the Stade Chaban-Delmas – venue for games at the 1938 and 1998 FIFA World Cups – as home for the Girondins.
