- Waldemar Kita has in mind to build his training center, become too small and unhealthy.
- The president of Nantes is currently negotiating with private owners for land in Pont-Saint-Martin.
What if it was not just a bluff? FC Nantes, elsewhere than the training center of Joneliere, become obsolete and too small to accommodate all sections? The eventuality takes more and more thickness. President
Waldermar Kita negotiates with private landowners, located in
Pont-Saint-Martin, commune of the South Loire. According to information from 20 minutes, the site has been seen several times by the management and employees of the club.
It is located at the entrance of the town, 500 m to the right after the castle of Rairie, about ten minutes as the crow flies from the airport and 8 minutes by car (when it runs well ) from the ring road (Porte de Reze).
The land, which is in the recreation area and adjoins the golf course (la Marionniere) of the town, is between 20 and 30 hectares. They belong to two brothers, one of whom is currently living in the United States. The site likes a lot to the management, which confirmed this Sunday the information to 20 minutes without wanting to say more. Nothing is recorded yet. Both parties discuss.
"The owners want to sell their land at the price of building m2 and Waldemar Kita buy at the price of m2 not buildable …", says a close file. So for the time being there is a delta between what the Nantes management proposes and what the owners want.
Yannick Fetiveau (father of Tanguy Fetiveau, coach of the FCN Women's 1 Team), Mayor of Pont-Saint-Martin, was contacted, but did not call back. Pascal Bolo, first deputy mayor of Nantes and vice-president of Nantes Metropole in charge of high level sport, who proposed the transfer of women and football school to the Basses Landes, Porte de Rennes, to relieve the Joneliere, did not answer either.

A new center outside Nantes Metropole?
Last week, the president of Nantes told some employees that he would have his new training center in three years. Unhappy with the decision of Johanna Rolland, mayor of Nantes, to abandon the stadium project last February, WK had been blowing internally for several weeks that he would seek to move his center out of … Nantes Metropole. This is the case for the municipality of Pont-Saint-Martin.
