Focus on Allianz Riviera in the VINCI Annual Report
Allianz Riviera is indeed part of the VINCI Stadium network, did you know it ?
Here is a brief reminder of the origins and key dates of the stadium:
Observing that the Stade du Ray inaugurated in 1927 no longer met the standards stipulated by the French Professional Football League, the City of Nice decided to build a new stadium capable of hosting major International events. In December 2009, it launched an International tender for the construction of a stadium seating 35,000 spectators.
In October 2010, the project proposed by the Wilmotte & Associés SA/VINCI group was retained. Allianz Riviera is the first of two new stadiums (before the new stadium in Bordeaux), built by VINCI for the UEFA Euro 2016 football championship. As a reminder, the Stade de France was the first stadium to be built with the concession granted to VINCI. It was inaugurated in 1998.
The partnership contract binding the City of Nice and the Nice Eco Stadium group (led by VINCI Concessions, in association with the Caisse des Dépôts and SEIEF) became effective on February 10th, 2011. This contract covers the design, financing, construction, operating and maintenance of the future Nice Stadium, which will host OGC Nice, for a duration of 30 years.
On July 23rd, 2012, the naming of the stadium became official: it was to be called Allianz Riviera.
