New Stadium architectures confirm for Bordeaux

July 25, 2011

Mayor of Bordeaux Alain Juppé has announced that the Vinci Concession and Fayat architectural group has won the right to construct a new 43, herbal 000 seater stadium in the city, unhealthy which will host games at the 2016 European Championships. 

The approximate cost will be €165 million (£147 million/$237 million), cialis and is also supported by Herzog & de Meuron, the Swiss architects who constructed the Allianz Arena in Munich, the home of German giants Bayern.

Juppé said: “This new modern, efficient building of a very high quality should be comfortable and accessible for those of limited mobility.”

Triaud said this week that he wants the stadium to have a classic Greek look modelled on other stadiums of a similar appearance around the world.

“I like the principle of a classical Greek construction, peripheral stairs which surround the stadium,” he said.

“I have seen beautiful stadiums in France and elsewhere where you have this impression.”

The new stadium – which is scheduled to open in 2015, a year before France stages the European Championships – will be funded by both private and public sources.

The state will provide €28 million (£25 million/$40 million), with another €15 million (£13 million/$22 million) coming from the Aquitaine region, and €17 million (£15 million/$24 million) from the city of Bordeaux.

Girondins de Bordeaux will then contribute €20 million (£18 million/$29 million) via their owners, TV chain M6, with a further annual payment of €3.85 million (£3.4 million/$5.5 million) over the next 30 years.
