Vinci named preferred bidder for Dunkirk sports arena

The Dunkirk urban community has named Vinci as preferred bidder to design, finance, build, operate and maintain the €112M (£89M) Arena de Dunkerque stadium, which will have a seating capacity of 10,000.

Design and construction of the stadium, expected to take 36 months, will be carried out by Vinci Construction France through its subsidiaries Adim Nord Picardie, Sogea Caroni and Dumez EPS, in association with local SMEs.

Commercial operation of the stadium, including facilities management and sporting fixture/events programming, will be handled by Vinci Concessions, while upkeep and maintenance will be entrusted to Vinci Facilities.

Besides contributing to the development of the two user clubs (the handball club USDK and the basketball club BCM Gravelines-Dunkerque), the new stadium will be a new entertainment and cultural venue for the city of Dunkirk and the surrounding region.
