KEY FACTS & FEATURES
The Allianz Riviera, also known as Grand Stade de Nice, is the recently opened new stadium of OGC Nice.
A new stadium to replace their old and run-down Stade du Ray had been a long time wish of Nice. Earlier projects were abandoned in 2002 and 2006, and it was only after France got awarded the Euro 2016 tournament that significant progress was made.
The Allianz Riviera is located in the western suburbs of the city of Nice at about 10 kilometres from Nice’s city centre and about 5 kilometres from Nice International airport.
The stadium lies right on the A8 motorway, which runs north of the city of Nice all along the French Riviera. Take exit 52 to get directly to the stadium, though other parking areas are easier reached via exit 51.
If coming from central Nice, it is easier to take the Route de Grenoble north from the Promenade des Anglais near Nice International Airport.
If using public transport, you can reach the stadium with special matchday bus service 95, which runs from Hôpital St Roch in Nice’s city centre. The journey takes about 50 minutes. The route of regular line 9/10 is furthermore extended so that it serves the stadium, though the journey takes about 75 minutes.
