Stade Municipal du Ray is a football stadium in Nice, France. It was the home of OGC Nice since it opened in 1927 and has a capacity of 18,696.[1] It is popular for being located in the center of the city, but suffers from its old structure and small capacity. The red and black colored stadium is mostly used for football. A new stadium was supposed to be built in the Lingostière side, but the project was cancelled in 2006. The stadium was replaced by the Allianz Riviera in September 2013.
