The initial design concepts respond to FC Nantes’ needs as exposed in the consultation meetings held since February and detailed in their brief. They aim at allowing everyone to better imagine themselves into the new stadium project, seize it and enrich the discussion. To that extent, the participants in the preliminary consultation will contribute to feed the rest of the project, based on their users’ experience.

On October 22, VTB Arena Park, home of FC Dynamo Moscow, officially announced the completion of the first construction phase; the new football pitch and tribunes of the reconstructed “Dynamo” stadium. The stadium is planned to be fully operational in April 2018 while the first match is scheduled for 5 June 2018.

If everything goes as planned, the new Craiova Stadium will be inaugurated on 29 October with a game between CSU Craiova and Steaua Bucharest.

We’re happy to announce that ESSMA has published its first Stadium Development Report. Like mentioned during the ESSMA Summit in Lyon, we want to provide our members with quarterly structural updates on stadium projects across Europe.
