Monaco600A capacity of 18,523 might seem modest, but in Monaco that's more than half of the population. The Stade Louis II is named after the former Prince of Monaco who reigned at the time the original stadium was built in 1939. The current stadium was opened in 1985, and though a bomb exploded at the site in 2004, thankfully no lasting damage was caused. Besides the coastal scenery, the stadium has one other oddity: a car park situated directly under the pitch.
