French contractor Vinci has been named preferred bidder for a €112 million concession to design, finance, build, operate and maintain a new stadium in Dunkirk, northern France.

Preferred bidder status for the 28-year concession was awarded by the Communauté Urbaine de Dunkerque (Dunkirk urban community).

Design and construction of the 10,000-seater Arena de Dunkerque stadium is expected to take three years and will be carried out by Vinci Construction France through its subsidiaries Adim Nord Picardie, Sogea Caroni and Dumez EPS.

Architectural input will be provided by Chabanne & Partenaires, in partnership with AvantPropos and AB+Architectes.

Commercial operation of the stadium, including facilities management and sporting fixture/events programming, will be handled by Vinci Concessions, while upkeep and maintenance will be entrusted to Vinci Facilities.

The stadium will provide a new venue for the USDK handball club and the BCM Gravelines-Dunkerque basketball club.
