Glaz Arena - November 23, 2019
The Glaz Arena is one of X-Trial’s most modern venues, having been inaugurated as recently as 14th March 2019, with an impressively short fourteen month phase of construction at a cost of €20m. The 2,000m2 space can host up to 4,500 spectators in comfortable seats.
Designed to welcome various events, from conventions to shows, the arena posesses a stage that can be configured between 50 and 240m2 in size, facilitating a wide range of indoor competitions.
The installation has already been internationally homologated by federations in a huge variety of sports: basketball, handball, volleyball, badminton, tenis, gymnastics, table tennis, boxing and skating.
The current primary use of this facility is as the home ground for Cesson-Rennes Metropole HB, who have participated in the highest division of French handball since the 2009-2010 season. The X-Trial World Championship is the first major international event to take centre-stage here.
