Like no other.Welcome to the new website for L’Arena Nanterre La Défense where you can find out all about the venue, which will be the biggest, most modern and most modular arena in Europe. L’Arena is both an auditorium and a rugby stadium. Every year the venue will host about fifty events - including concerts, conventions, sports matches and live performances – attended by between 10,000 and 40,000 spectators. L’Arena will be a unique object in a magnificent area, in the heart of French Manhattan and right on the famous Parisian Axe Historique which runs from the Louvre to La Défense via Place de la Concorde and the Champs-Elysées. Join us at the end of 2017 for the opening ceremony and, until then, enjoy your virtual visit !

Rugby match spectators will be as close to the action as regulations allow and the stands are designed accordingly – well-angled seating and a distance of 5m between the first spectators and the touch line.
