To continue on the European scene, Monaco will perhaps have to equip itself with a new room in the future. Asked about this, Prince Albert II gave a track which would be the only viable one.
Third and therefore bronze medalist this season in the Euroleague, Monaco currently has the smallest room of the 18 teams involved in the most prestigious of the European Cups. Indeed, although recently renovated, Gaston-Médecin can currently only accommodate around 4,500 spectators. However, to perpetuate the Roca Team among the best European teams, the project of evolving in a new, larger room is currently being studied in the Principality. At least that’s what Prince Albert II recently acknowledged, inevitably proud of the fine course of Sasa Obradovic’s players last weekend during the Final Four in Kaunas (Lithuania).
“With the government and the leaders, we talked about this informally (to have a room larger than currently), there is no solution that everyone agrees with, except to review maybe -be the development project for the Moneghetti stadium, “explained the latter in a first.
“It is still at the stage of reflection”
“There is already a project that exists and has not started, but it is the only solution I would see. We had talked about enlarging the hall and redoing the Louis-II stadium completely, but that would require enormous work that would impact other sports, including football. We also talked about the tent, but there are so many other events that depend on its structures to exist that it’s very complicated. (…) It is still at the reflection stage. Redoing this Gaston-Médecin room has already required a substantial budget, so if the requirements for the number of places are higher and higher from year to year, there will be a time when we may not be able to follow, “said subsequently declared Prince Albert II, during an interview granted to Nice-Matin.
Very ambitious both in France and in Europe, the future of Monaco could therefore be made on the side of the Moneghetti stadium, which is located near Beausoleil.
