Our stadiums are obsolete – says president of Girondins de Bordeaux, Jean-Louis Triaud. At the same time he assures the city’s new venue will be ready in 2015, in time for Euro 2016.
A few days ago RMC Sport radio invited Jean-Louis Triaud, president of one of French league’s powerhouses, Girondins. Among the discussed subjects were new stadiums in France and the need for their construction. Triaud left no doubt that he rates the existing venues really low and sees the need for Bordeaux's Stade Atlantique.
“Our stadiums are obsolete. They are not adapted to accommodate people properly. They are from another era. The Bordeaux was built in 1934.
“Changing the stadium, it was a requirement in all cases. In Bordeaux, the building permit was signed by the mayor. Like everywhere else, there will be a period of use it will serve. The installation is ready. We could start in late 2012, early 2013. The date of the inauguration? We will be in time for the Euro. It will be delivered in 2015.
