Stade Gaston-Gérard – stadium description

Located east of the city centre, the largest sports complex in Dijon was opened in 1934. From the start the multi-use stadium was its most important facility, holding both major athletic events and football. This is where Sergey Bubka set one of his amazing records before reaching an all-time high two years later in Italy.

As for football, it wasn’t always on the national level, but after the local side advanced to League 2 in 1974, floodlights were erected. Along with covering of the east stand (1988) and creation of skyboxes in the west (1990) those were the largest changes until early twenty-first century.

In 2007 a complete redevelopment project was launched, though divided into twoseparate stages, two standa each. By 2009 the north stand was ready and in 2010 its south equivalent of what was planned to be a 22,000-seater. However, works were halted then until 2014, when the east stand was also contracted, though with reduced size.
