Raymond Kopa Stadium (formerly Stade Jean-Bouin) is a football stadium in Angers, France. It is the home ground of Angers SCO. The stadium holds 17,835 people, a capacity which was reached in 2010 with the reconstruction of the Coubertin stand.[2]
The name was officially changed from Stade Jean-Bouin to Stade Raymond Kopa on 27 March 2017, to honour French football legend Raymond Kopa who made his professional debut with the club and died in the city 3 weeks previously.[3][4]
