In short

On October 5th the roof of the Grand Stade Lille Métropole Stadium was lifted into position, an amazing feat considering that it involved raising the entire roof structure, which weighs as much as the Eiffel Tower, 27 meters high.

A key stage in the creation of a unique project

This is a key stage in the construction project : the mobile roof, which can open and close in less than 30 minutes, is what makes this stadium unique. Thanks to the roof and its retractable pitch, the stadium can be transformed on demand into a “showcase arena” suitable for indoor events, and be completely independent of weather conditions.
