Club: Stade de Reims | Opening: 2008 | Capacity: 21,684 seats
History and description
Stade de Reims first made plans for a move to a new stadium in the late 1990s. It took several years of studies and planning until building works started in 2004.
The new Stade Auguste Delaune got built at the site of the old stadium with the same name, and over a period of four years the old stadium got gradually demolished and replaced by new stands.
The completed Stade Auguste Delaune officially opened on 5 December 2008 with a match between Reims and Lens.
How to get to Stade Auguste Delaune
Stade Auguste Delaune is located just south-west of the city centre of Reims, with only the river Vesle and A4 motorway separating the two.
The stadium lies a 15 to 20-minute walk away from Reims’ main rail station (which lies toward the north of the centre). The walk from other parts of the city centre, including the cathedral, will likely take less.
Multiple direct trains a day connect Reims with Paris Est railway station. The journey takes about 45 minutes.
Address: 33 Chaussée Bocquaine, 51100 Reims
