- Concession grantor: City of Le Mans
- Concession company: Le Mans Stadium (LMS)
Le Mans Stadium (LMS), a subsidiary of VINCI Concessions, has been the concession holder of the MMArena stadium in Le Mans since 2008. The contract covers the design, financing, operation and maintenance of the 25,000 seat multi-purpose stadium.
VINCI Concessions has a stake in the economic development of this state-of-the-art stadium, since part of its remuneration will be based on the revenue from events organised at the site.
MMArena, the first stadium in France to bear the name of a company under a naming contract, was officially opened on 29 January 2011 in front of a crowd of 25,000 people, in the presence of French Prime Minister François Fillon and Chantal Jouanno, Minister of Sport.
In 2011, the stadium hosted 70 corporate events attended by 15,000 people; 22 soccer matches with the local club, Le Mans FC; and, for the first time, a Stade Français rugby game on 24 March as part of the Orange TOP 14 competition.
