French 3rd division side to build new stadium

New Stadium to be built in Paris

Sunday 7th July 2019

French Championnat National (3rd Division) side Red Star are to build a new stadium, taking “inspiration” from English football grounds.

The project is part of a wider development which will include shops, offices, bars, restaurants and a concert hall.

The stadium itself will have a capacity in the region of 10,000-15,000 and will be located on the site of the existing Stade Bauer. It is hoped that the stadium will be completed in 2023, in time to be considered as a host venue for the 2024 Paris Olympics and Paralympics.

The total cost of the project is estimated to be €180m.
