Club: AS Monaco FC | Opening: 1985 | Capacity: 18,523 seats
History and description
Stade Louis II got built in the early 1980s in place of Monaco’s old Stade Louis II. It officially opened on the 25th of January 1985.
Stade Louis II was the host of the annual UEFA Super Cup encounters since they became a single match in 1998 until 2013, when UEFA decided to have the match played at a different venue each year.
Stade Louis II is located on the southern border of the little state of Monaco. It is just a 15-minute walk to the stadium from the Royal Palace, and a 30-minute walk from the casino and Monte Carlo’s train station.
Address: Avenue des Castelans 3, 98000 Monaco
Eat, drink, and sleep
Stade Louis II is situated in a residential area mainly consisting of large apartment blocks. There are few eating and drinking establishments in the area, but the centre is just a 15-minute walk away and offers many more eating and drinking options.
There are three hotels located in the very near vicinity of Stade Louis II: Riviera Marriott Hotel, Le Quai des Princes, and Hotel Columbus, but, it being Monaco, neither comes cheap, and nor do most of the other hotels in Monte Carlo. You may therefore want to explore cheaper options in nearby Nice or Menton.
Tickets for AS Monaco games can be bought online, on the official website or on Ticketnet.fr, at the ticket counters of the stadium, or through any of the Francebillet, Digitick, or Ticketnet sales points.
Tickets are also available at the ticket windows of Stade Louis II on the day of the match. AS Monaco hardly ever sell out, even in a successful season.
Ticket prices depend on the opponent, but for a regular opponent range from €10.00 for a seat at one of the curves to €50.00 for a seat at the main stand. Prices can be higher for a number of “Gala” matches.
