Stade du Hainaut

Home to VAFC, the Stade du Hainaut will hold 22,600 spectators during the FIFA Women's World Cup 2019™, having opened in 2011 after three years of work. Built to replace the Stade Nungesser, located just a few hundred metres away, the ground was the backdrop to a 3-2 victory for France's men's team against Iceland in 2012, while the women's side contested a friendly there in 2013 before returning for a UEFA Women's EURO 2017 qualifier in 2016.
