History and description

The stadium, named after founder Geoffroy Guichard's father, was built on land that was donated by the founder himself. The president of the club, and his son Pierre, both decided to name the stadium in honor of Geoffroy's father. The Saint-Etienne-Cannes football match was the first game at the new Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, which officially opened on September 13, 1931.

The stadium consisted of a single grandstand of 800 seats and several terraces. The adjacent steel works regularly blew their fumes over the pitch.

Geoffroy-Guichard underwent a major change in 1956 when the running tracks were removed and the stands were remodelled in a rectangular shape.

In 1968, after the city of Saint-Etienne bought the stadium, further works were performed, which included a brand new stand opposite the main stand and cover for the two kop stands. This resulted in a capacity of almost 40,000.

The stadium was further expanded and renovated for the Euro 1984 Championships, and as a result it has a capacity of 48,270. It hosted two group matches during the championships.

It took until the 1998 World Cup for the stadium to receive a further major upgrade. Seats were installed and corporate facilities increased.

During the 1998 World Cup, Stade Geoffroy-Guichard hosted a total of five group matches and the round of 16 match between Argentina and England.

As a result of being selected to host the Euro 2016 Championships, Stade Geoffroy-Guichard had to undergo major redevelopment works in 2011.

The construction involved the rebuilding or renovation of all stands, which resulted in a 41,500-seat arena. The project was completed before the start of the 2014-15 season.

During the Euro 2016 Championships, the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard hosted three first round group games and the round of 16 games between Poland and Switzerland (1-1).

The stadium is in the English style and there are many restaurants and bars nearby. I was there for the Portugal v Iceland Euro match in the tournament. The atmosphere was great, and I was in the neutral section but Portuguese everywhere! I came out into near darkness and got completely lost. I asked two local police officers for directions to walk to my hotel, it was miles away, one of them shouted "be careful? after me!!".
