The Stade Bollaert-Delelis (French pronunciation: ​[stad bɔlaʁt dələlis]) is the main football stadium in Lens, France, that was built in 1933. It is the home of RC Lens. The stadium's capacity is 38,223 – about 7,000 more than the city's population. The stadium was originally named after Félix Bollaert, a director of Compagnie des Mines de Lens, who was anxious to promote the development of sports clubs in the city. Construction began in 1931, though Bollaert died shortly before the stadium's inauguration. It was renamed Stade Bollaert-Delelis in 2012 after the death of André Delelis, former mayor of the city and politician who served as the Minister of Commerce under President François Mitterrand.

  • Very beautiful stadium and during football matches a large number of people coming from down district.now a days around the stadium a lot of things under construction.
  • Great atmosphere. A bit tricky finding our seats and getting drinks. We seemed to buy vip tickets without the access to drinks. Staff were really helpful though to find our seats
