Description

It was originally known as the Stade Olympique and was used as the home of Olympique de Marseille before the club moved to the new Stade Velodrome. The stadium currently has a capacity of 42,000. The stadium that is now known as Stade du Ray was originally built in 1927 and was initially used by Olympique de Marseille. The stadium later became home to Nice, who relocated to their new Allianz Riviera stadium in 2017. The current capacity of the stadium is 42,000 people. In 1952, 22,740 people went to a match between Nice and Racing Club de France at Stade du Ray stadium.

In 1979, the stadium's main stand was expanded. In 1995, a new stand was built at the opposite side of the stadium.

Further minor improvements were made after Nice was promoted to Ligue 1 in 2001, however Stade du Ray still hardly met safety requirements and the club needed dispensation from the LFP to keep playing their home matches there.

In the 2000s, Nice started exploring the possibilities of reconstructing Stade du Ray at the same site. However, once France got awarded the Euro 2016 tournament and Nice considered as one of the playing venues, the focus shifted to building a new stadium altogether.

Nice played their last match on September 1, 2013 at Stade du Ray. The league fixture against Montpellier ended in a 2-2 draw. The Nice municipality is currently exploring the options of what to do with the site of Stade du Ray, which is set to get demolished.
