Nice - Allianz Riviera
Nice is one of the host cities for Euro 2016 and its stadium, the Allianz Riviera, is set to see three group games and one round-of-sixteen tie played there. The venue was originally planned to be completed in 2007 but work was delayed until it was confirmed that France would host Euro 2016. It has since replaced the former Stade Municipal du Ray when it was opened in 2013 and it is the home of Ligue 1 outfit OGC Nice.
