UEFA Euro 2016: Travelling to the Matmut Atlantique in Bordeaux
The Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux – officially called Matmut Atlantique – serves as home ground to the French football club FC Girondins de Bordeaux. Responsible for the design of the new stadium is the architectural office which also developed the Allianz Arena in Munich. The construction process began in 2013 and was completed in April 2015. In order to finance the new arena the original plan was to find a sponsor, whose name the stadium was supposed to receive. However, since there was no sponsor found by the time the stadium was opened in May 2015, it was initially called Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux. An investor could finally be obtained in September 2015 and the arena was officially renamed Matmut Atlantique.
The multi-purpose stadium, which also hosts rugby games, has an overall capacity of 42,115 spectators. Due to sponsoring regulations, it will feature as Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux in the UEFA Euro 2016. Five matched will be played at Bordeaux’s stadium.
