History and description
Stade des Alpes opened on 15 February 2008 with a match between Grenoble and Clermont (2-0). It replaced Stade Lesdiguières as the home of Grenoble and came 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. The design has a lot of similarities with Amiens’ Stade de la Licorne, which was designed by the same architects.
Stade des Alps was one of the playing vanues of the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
