Stade de l’Aube History
Stade de l’Aube first opened in 1956 however the site’s usage for football matches dates back anywhere between 20-30 years depending on which historians you believe. The current 20,000 plus capacity stadium as we know it largely arrived after renovation work which occurred over a six year period between 1999 and 2004.
To date the record attendance of Stade de l’Aube is 20,347 which was achieved during a second division match between Troyes and Amiens SC on 18th May 2012. An end of season fixture, fans flocked to the stadium to celebrate Troye’s promotion back to Ligue 1 as they secured a third place finish behind Reims and Bastia.
The highest level of football played Troyes Stadium has arguably been qualification matches of the UEFA Cup in the 2000/2001 season. After defeating MFK Ruzomberok, the club faced Leeds United but narrowly lost 6-5 on aggregate. Participation came on the back of winning the Intertoto Cup by defeating Newcastle United in the final after defeating Wolfsburg and AIK en-route.
In June 2013 Stade de l’Aube became the first French football ground to incorporate a blend of artificial and natural grass which incorporates AirFibr hybrid turf technology. Thought to make the playing surface more durable, maintaining a high quality pitch can often be expensive, and thus this has been seen as a financially prudent move.
