Nimes to rebuild Stade de Costieres

Nimes set to demolish and rebuild current stadium

Sunday 7th July 2019

French side Nimes Olympique have outlined plans to demolish and completely rebuild their Stade de Costieres.

The news comes after the Ligue 1 club agreed a price of €8m to buy the ground from the local council. The current stadium will be demolished somewhere around 2022/2023 with the new 15,000 capacity replacement venue ready sometime around 2025.

The project will cost and estimated €230m and also include shops and hotels. The club’s owner has confirmed that the stadium won’t be named after a sponsor saying: "There will be no naming. I hate that. A stadium is not a brand".

Nimes will be forced to play at a temporarily stadium during the construction works.
