Arena 92 is an upcoming multi-use indoor arena now under construction, that the French rugby union club Racing Métro 92 is building in the western suburbs of Paris.[1] It will replace their current stadium Stade Olympique Yves-du-Manoir. Originally planned to open in 2014 but delayed due to local protests, it is now projected to open by the end of 2016.[2] The venue, originally planned to have a retractable roof but instead being built with a fixed roof, offers three separate configurations. In its rugby configuration, it will have a capacity of 32,000. For concerts, it will be able to seat 40,000. Finally, a movable stand will allow it to be used for indoor sports, with a capacity as low as 5,000.
