FC Nantes unveils plans for new stadium

By October 02, 2017

FC Nantes have announced plans to build a new stadium for 2022. The stadium will be built at the old parking of the current stadium, Stade de la Beaujoire. The plans are to make it a multi-purpose complex that will include housing facilities for 1,500 people, a shopping centre, a school and a car park. 


“We do not have any stadiums that meet UEFA standards in western France. We want to do everything so that this stadium is the best in France and one of the best in Europe. It is my duty to equip this large club with a stadium and complex that meets its requirements and ambitions."

Club President Waldermar Kita


Stade de la Beaujoire was opened in 1984 ahead of the UEFA European Championships in France. FC Nantes now hopes that a similar agreement can be reached to host some of the football matches for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.


The entire project will cost around €200 million. When the new stadium will be completed, plans are to demolish la Beaujoire.
