Parc des Sports d’Annecy – stadium description
First sporting venues were built here in 1930s, but construction of a stadium began only in 1958. It took 6 long years before it was opened in 1964.
From the very start Annecy’s main stadium served mostly for athletics, with domestic championships hosted three times, in 1987, 1993 and 1994. Some international tournaments were also held here, though not any of the most important.
As for football, Annecy FC are the regular hosts, but in 2011 also Evian Thonon Gaillard FC moved in despite Evian/Thonon being over 70km north of Annecy. This was the only stadium able to meet Ligue 1 criteria and only after a series of renovations in 2010-11, with seats and parts of the roof installed.
