Stade Pierre de Coubertin – stadium description

New sports stadium in Cannes was built in 1960s and serves football, rugby and athletics. Over the years relations between football and athletic clubs started deteriorating, leading to the latter moving out to a different venue. This allowed to remove the running track and bring fans closer to the action.

In 2000-2003 new temporary stands behind goals were set up, increasing capacity to some 16,000, but they were dismantled in 2012, bringing stadium size to around 10,000.
