FC Nantes' New Stadium Is Going To Be Different Gravy

Ligue One side FC Nantes have shared plans for their new stadium and it looks set to be one the most impressive in world football.

Les Canaris have been playing at Stade de la Beaujoire since 1984 but will upgrade to a state-of-the-art ground for 2022, which is when they are aiming for 'Yellow Park' to be completed.

Under the stewardship of the legend that is Claudio Ranieri, Nantes are definitely a club on the up and are currently in sixth place in the French top flight, just one point behind fifth-placed Rennes.

Their stadium plans underline their ambition for the future, with designs of their 40,000 capacity arena boasting stunning visuals.

In addition to that, the stadium will also comprise of a huge 360 degree video screen - an incredibly innovative feature.

However, they won't be the only side to have the futuristic video screen in their home ground - FK Krasnodar's Roman Colosseum-inspired stadium, opened in 2016, was the first to incorporate the technology and it looks out of this world.
