Stade Marcel Picot is a football (soccer) stadium located in Tomblaine, France, near the city of Nancy. Built in 1926, it is used by Ligue 1 soccer team AS Nancy.

The stadium was completely rebuilt and inaugurated in its new configuration in 2003. It is now able to hold 20,087 people.[1]

Since summer 2010, Marcel-Picot is one of the very few French stadiums equipped with artificial turf.

In preparation for the 2016 UEFA European Football Championship, the stadium will undergo major transformation, starting in summer 2012, to be able to hold 35,000 people and will be equipped with a retractable roof by 2013.[3]
