Stade des Alpes in Grenoble
The Stade des Alpes is a rugby and football stadium. The stadium seats 20,068 and hosts the home games of Grenoble Foot 38 and the FC Grenoble rugby club. Situated in Paul Mistral Park, it replaced their stadium Stade Lesdiguières. It was built while GF38 played in the top divisions of French football, and had become somewhat of a white elephant now that the club plays in the 4th division and attracts few fans. However, the stadium gained greater viability once FC Grenoble earned their most recent promotion to the Top 14 in 2012. Since 2014–15, with FC Grenoble now consolidated in Top 14, the club have changed their primary home from their traditional ground, Stade Lesdiguières, to Stade des Alpes. This stadium uses solar panels and produces more than 70,000 kWh per year. On February 10, 2017, it hosted a Six Nations Under 20s Championship match between France and Scotland with France winning 36 – 8.
