History and description
Stade des Alps opened on the 15th of February with a match between Grenoble and Clermont (2-0). It had come at a cost of €88 million.
The stadium is best known for its characteristic design by Chaix & Morel architects, and in particular its transparent swelling roof structure.
Stade des Alps is located just south-east of Grenoble’s historic centre right next to the city hall. The walk from the cathedral takes no more than 10 minutes.
Grenoble’s main railway station is located west of the centre at about 2 kilometres from the stadium. The walk takes less than half an hour, or you can catch tram A toward Denis Papin. Get off at Verdun Préfecture, from where it is a 5-minute walk to the stadium.
Address: Avenue de Valmy, 38000 Grenoble
Tickets for Grenoble matches can be bought on the gate on the day of the match. Grenoble presently never sell out.
