With the appearance of the Allianz Riviera, the City of Nice has acquired a multifunctional facility to help enhance its international reputation as France’s leading business tourism destination after Paris.
Nice’s multi-purpose Allianz Riviera stadium sits on the Var plain, in the eco-valley and only a few km from Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport. Designed by the famed international architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, a real centre for the community, it hosts OGC Nice’s football matches, as well as rugby, concerts and large-scale shows and events. A host site for the Euro 2016, this connected stadium can hold 35,000 to 45,000 spectators and has been built in accordance with sustainable development principles.
Allianz Riviera is home to the Musée National du Sport (National Museum of Sport), known as the “Musée de France” (Museum of France), with 5,000 m² dedicated to conserving, broadcasting and enhancing sporting heritage (50,000 artefacts and 200,000 documents).
