Paris La Défense Arena - Seated (Guide Only)


Venue Information

The new identity of Paris La Défense Arena (formerly the U Arena) was unveiled on Tuesday, June 12 2018 during the match France 98 vs Fifa 98. This graphic identity is inspired by the iconic architecture of the building and its scales designed by Christian de Portzamparc. It establishes a clear link between the new territorial identity of Paris La Défense and this iconic equipment, a true symbol of the transformation of the business district.

This identity, created by the agency Babel, reflects the energy and the intensity of the emotions that are lived in the enclosure.

Imagine a place that is not just a room or a stadium, but a place for a new experience. A place created beyond norms and standards to revolutionize emotions and feelings. An enclosure twice as big as the usual standards of European arenas. The only one in the world whose stands are organised in U to sublimate the multiple emotions of the live show, on the field or the stage, by the most advanced innovation.
