The multi-purpose stadium, located in Lille on the Boulevard de Tournai and designed by the architects Valode & Pistre and Pierre Ferret, will host the finals of the Basketball European Championships from September 12th.
Primarily, the Stade Pierre Mauroy is the stadium of the football club OSC Lille with a capacity of 50.000 spectators. Within 24 hours, the stadium can be turned into a versatile arena for concerts, cultural and indoor sports events. Therefore one part of the lawn will be moved to the northern sector of the stadium, so that a deeper playing ground appears. Thanks to a downward expansion of the stands 30.000 spectators will be able to watch the matches of the EuroBasket 2015.
