The Matmut Atlantique has 42,115 seats in the soccer and rugby configurations. The multifunctional new generation arena also has three concert configurations, one frontal with the stage at the north, a second facing west as well as a central 360° with a maximum capacity of 44,683 seats.
The arena’s playing field is equipped with a hybrid lawn, that is to say half synthetic and half natural, the product of the Airfibr technology designed by the novarea cabinet. Not an ounce of earth was used to create the field’s surface area but a new generation substrate of fine silica sand, cork granules and 450 billion synthetic fibers make up the base and insure the rooting of the grass. Unique in France, all these components combined with the grass seeding is a first for the national territory. Just like the stadium, the lawn was designed to host events of all types.
The Matmut Atlantique is located on the left bank at the heart of the Bordeaux-Lac district. Contributing to raising the area’s profile, the presence of free parking, a public transport network and a hotel center less than 5 minutes from the arena offer many advantages to the site regardless of your means of accessing the venue. By car and two wheelers, the 4a and 4c exits on the rocade allow you to access the arena. Concerning public transport, the last stop on the tram’s C line is located 200 meters from the West parvis. A shuttle at the Brandenburg stop drops off the stadium’s spectators at the stadium’s south entrance. Finally, three VCUB stations are located within a radius of one kilometer and allow you to ride the bicycle trail along the Lake’s shores.
On event nights, all of the 6,000 parking spaces at the Fair Grounds are reserved for the Matmut Atlantique spectators. Between the floral park and the North Stand, 1,500 parking places are there for the VIPs, Persons with Disabilities, visitors and media.
