Club: Dijon FCO | Opening: 1934 | Capacity: 16,000
History and description
Stade Gaston-Gérard opened on 19 May 1934 as Parc des Sports and could at that time hold about 10,000 spectators.
The stadium got renamed in 1969 in honour of former deputy mayor of Dijon and French minister of tourism Gaston Gérard. Over the years the stadium underwent several minor changes and refurbishments.
In 2007, Dijon presented plans to completely redevelop Stade Gaston-Gerard into a modern 22,000 all-seater arena, with works to be performed in several stages.
Building works started with the stands behind the goals. A new North Stand was completed in May 2009 and a new South Stand in October 2010. Progress then stalled and it took until 2015 for the East Stand to be demolished, which got completed two years later, leaving only the West Stand to be rebuilt.
