New Stadium Breaks Ground
BOREDAUX, FRANCE, 15 April 2013 – After being first unveiled to the public in July 2011, the new stadium breaks ground in Bordeaux this morning. Located in the the Bordeaux lac district, the project brings together three key elements, the bowl containing the game and its spectators, the concourse as a transition between the playing field and the outside surroundings and the overall appearance. Seating up to 42,000 spectators, the bowl embraces the playing field, its geometry affording optimal visibility for all, and maximum flexibility of capacity and usage. The new stadium will reflect the intrinsic qualities of the site, its form modelled to welcome crowd flows, offering a new public space of the highest functional quality. The new stadium is expected to be completed in 2015.
