Euro 2016: Last game for Lille’s turf
After tonight’s last group game the field at Stade Pierre Mauroy will be replaced by brand new one. It needs to stay in decent condition for “only two” games. But is this possible?
Euro 2016: UEFA’s grounds of concern
Additional lighting and ventilation, patching, even painting. All of these measures have been used to salvage the poorest fields of Euro 2016. UEFA seems to point to the French, but hosts strike back.
Euro 2016: The largest Euro in history
Average capacity of every stadium outgrew all European Championships held in this century. Ticket number highest in history, but how does attendance look so far? Let’s see!
Euro 2016: France lost their first weekend
One death, 116 arrests and unending (though largely exaggerated) reports of violence – that’s the outcome of first 3 days of Euro 2016. Serious changes need to come in crowd management and policing.
Euro 2016 countdown: 01 – Stade de France!
The giant from northern Paris ends our Euro 2016 countdown just hours before opening game. This building underwent almost no changes, because it’s stunning as it is!
Euro 2016 countdown: 02 - Stade Vélodrome
This time next year the stadium will be turning 80, but it’s as young as ever thanks to a lavish redevelopment that made it Marseille’s largest building.
Euro 2016 countdown: 03 – Stade de Lyon
By far the most expensive stadium built for this edition of European Championship, but taxpayers weren’t burdened with it. It’s also the very last to be delivered. But just how impressive it is!
Euro 2016 countdown: 04 – Stade Pierre Mauroy
By far the most multifunctional and experimental stadium in France, with one-of-a-kind foldable field. Although this feature won’t be used during Euro 2016, hopefully.
Euro 2016 countdown: 05 – Parc des Princes
The only stadium of the tournament located directly in Paris, with a great history and bright future. If only it was a bit bigger. But that’s an issue for another time…
Euro 2016 countdown: 06 – Stade Geoffroy Guichard
Looking at it today it’s really hard to believe that underneath its modern outer skin are the same stands that hosted the 1998 World Cup. Meet the legendary Cauldron!
Marseille: Orange grabs Vélodrome naming rights
For the upcoming decade the legendary stadium in Marseille will be called Orange Vélodrome. While official value of the deal wasn’t revealed, estimates put it quite low.
Euro 2016 countdown: 07 – Stade de Bordeaux
Love it or hate it, this stadium is the most unique one among France’s host list! Designed completely unlike any other, it’s the only one to be built in France by Herzog & de Meuron.
Euro 2016 Countdown: 08 – Stade Bollaert-Delelis
It was supposed to be prepared magnificently, but it’s decent at best. Still, Stade Bollaert-Delelis stands out as one of France’s most atmospheric stadiums.
Euro 2016 Countdown: 09 – Stadium de Toulouse
The smallest host stadium of Euro 2016 is a peculiar case: it looks almost as it did in 1938 despite so much work carried out inside.
Euro 2016 Countdown: 10 – Stade de Nice
The most expensive Euro 2016 stadium (per seat / per citizen) begins our countdown ahead of Europe’s most anticipated tournament.
Paris: Euro 2016 safety fears after cup final
It’s supposed to be the safest stadium on earth when Euro 2016 kicks off in less than 3 weeks. But Saturday’s French Cup final showed some issues remain, raising new doubts.
Paris: 2024 Olympics could accelerate Parc des Princes expansion
If Paris is chosen as host of the 2024 Olympics, PSG might receive a boost in attempt to expand Parc des Princes by over 10,000 seats. Which would be helpful since it’s full every game.
Euro 2016: Toulouse avoided fireworks
Not literally, because there was a pyrotechnic display on Saturday, during the symbolic reopening. But Stadium de Touluse seemingly hasn’t changed much. Well, seemingly.
Paris: Finishing touches at Parc des Princes
New vividly-coloured seats are the last major change fans should expect in Paris prior to Euro 2016. But over the last four years a lot more has changed, even if alterations are not instantly visible.
Lens: New roof, old issues
The renovation project of Stade Bollaert-Delelis may have cost roughly $90 million, but issues regarding protection against rain still remain. And they’re only top of a longer list.
