Paris-Bercy Omnisports Stadium - Inside View

The "Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy" - Paris-Bercy Omnisports Stadium was built in 1984 by French architects Andrau, Parrat and Gujan. The striking modern structure hosts a multitude of events, ranging from classical music concerts to rock bands in addition, of course, to its vocation as a major indoor sporting venue.

Bercy has hosted such major competitions as the World Championships in Volley-Ball, Gymnastics and Boxing and is a natural choice of stage for the IAAF World Indoor Championships.

For the occasion, Bercy will offer seats to some 5,000 spectators with unrestricted views of the whole arena in addition to the thousand or so members of the media, officials and technical operators.

The 6th IAAF World Indoor Championships will be a spectacular sequel to numerous top class athletics competitions which have been organised in Bercy since the inaugural World Indoor Games of 1985.
