The Stadium and its environment

The Allianz Riviera, designed by internationally renowned architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, opened in 2013. An initiative of the City of Nice, the project received strong backing from Allianz, the stadium name partner.
The venue has already given a fantastic boost to its resident club, OGC Nice, thanks to its quality facilities and the spectator experience it offers.

The Allianz Riviera is a multi-purpose stadium. In addition to OGC Nice matches, it has hosted the UEFA Euro 2016™, the FIFA Women’s World Cup, France 2019™, the start of the 3rd stage of the 2020 Tour de France, numerous international football and rugby matches between national sides and clubs, major concerts, trade shows and seminars. After the semi-finals of the Top 14 rugby tournament in June 2022, the stadium is now preparing to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup and the 2024 Olympic Games.

The Allianz Riviera can hold up to 36,178 spectators for football or rugby matches, and concert set-ups can allow for additional capacity.
 

Groups and individuals can explore the Allianz Riviera with tour guides from the National Sport Museum. Advance booking is required for tours.
