The Pré-Hembert stadium is an exceptional site, calm, perfectly secure and not overlooked. It has large indoor parking and practice areas which ca be used for different activities. The stadium also has its own gym. A green environment in a very pleasant setting, the Pré-Hembert stadium is very easy to access, close to Nantes and close to the centre of Saint-Nazaire. Located between the sea and the countryside, with a renovated seafront, 20 beaches, several woods and ponds, it offers many possibilities for walks and training in a very quiet and calm environment, close to many hotels.
The size of the site makes it a multifunctional and adaptable place. In addition to the rugby club training at a national level, various other practices are possible (US football, athletics, workout…). A Rugby Centre will obviously find its place here. A cycling centre can also be set up there (meetings, weight training, changing rooms, bus parking, etc.).
There is a wide choice of accommodation and restaurants close to the sports centre. The City is at the teams’ disposal to meet their specific needs in terms of space planning (meeting rooms, relaxation rooms, physiotherapy, catering, etc.).
Welsh national rugby team has selected the Pre-Hembert Stadium as its base camp during the 2007 Rugby World Cup. The sports centre has hosted a France-England U20 match in the U20 categories and on a more regular basis U16, U18 national teams and French 2nd division teams for match and base camps.
Furthermore, Saint-Nazaire has already hosted several cycling contests such as the “Trophée de France des jeunes Cyclistes” in 2019, with more than 600 competitors, and has been a stage in the Tour de France on 4 occasions (1958, 1962, 1999, 2000). The City is currently applying to host the Tour de France in the coming years.
In these two disciplines, the City works with hotels and restaurants to provide to meet the teams’ expectations.
