Description: Stade Atlantique

Able to hold over 42,000 people, the new stadium was designed by Herzog and de Meuron, architects renowned for their previous visions in Munich and Beijing. They won the international competition held in mid-2011.

This time original form uses stands as the most distinctive accent, with very slender supports spread in what seems to be chaotic way.

Initially called Stade Bordeaux Atlantique, the ground was later named simply Grand Stade Bordeaux. Both names are temporary, however, as naming rights deal is expected to cover some 8% of the construction cost.

Overall, Girondins football club agreed to cover half the budget with €85 million. Remainder is to be paid by federal funding (€28m), municipality (€17m), urban community (€15m) and regional authorities (€15m). Last is the naming rights deal targeted at €15 million.
