Clermont Foot expand stadium for Ligue 1 debut

Clermont Foot expand stadium for Ligue 1 debut

Tuesday 17th August 2021

Clermont Foot have expanded their stadium with the construction of a new 3,000 seater stand at the Stade Gabriel Montpied.

Clermont have been promoted to Ligue 1 for the first time in their history after finishing runners up in the second tier last season. The new 3,000 seater stand takes the capacity of the Stade Gabriel Montpied to around 13,000, meaning it is still the smallest ground in the French top flight.

As well as a new stand, the club has also invested in improved media facilities as well as VAR and goal line technology.

Clermont won their first home game of the season, beating Troyes 2-0.
