History and description

The Stade de France is the largest stadium in France and the stadium where most important home matches are played by the French national team. Stade de France was built to serve as the centerpiece of the 1998 World Cup. At that time, no stadium in France had a capacity of over 45,000 and the tournament needed a 70,000+ stadium.

Construction of the stadium began in 1995 and it officially opened with a friendly match between the national teams of France and Spain on the 28th of January 1998. Zinedine Zidane scored the first and only goal of the match.

During the 1998 World Cup, Stade de France hosted nine matches. The opening match between Brazil and Scotland (2-1) was one of these matches. The semi-final between France and Croatia (2-1) was also one of these matches. And the final between France and Brazil (3-0) was also one of these matches.

The stadium has been the site of two Champions League finals, the first in 2000 between Real Madrid and Valencia (3-0), and the second in 2006 between Barcelona and Arsenal (2-1).

Stade de France was also the temporary home of the French national team during the Euros. In 2016, the European Championships were played at Stade de France in Paris. It hosted four first round group matches, one round of 16 match, and the quarter final between France and Iceland (5-2). The French national team temporarily took up residence at Stade de France while their normal home was renovated for UEFA Euro 2020.

They both detonated their bombs outside the stadium, injuring themselves but no others. In 2015, Stade de France was the site of a terrorist attack in which three suicide bombers detonated bomb vests. One suicide bomber tried to enter the stadium and his suicide vest was discovered during security checks; he then blew himself up, killing one bystander. The other two suicide bombers did not kill any innocents; they both detonated their bombs outside the stadium, injuring themselves but no others.

How to get to Stade de France

The Stade de France is located in Saint-Denis, approximately 3 kilometers north of the city limits of Paris, 5 kilometers north of Montmartre, and 8 kilometers from the Louvre museum. Two highways run directly past the stadium, the A1 (which connects with Paris's center and the Peripherique further south) and the A86. From the A1 take exit 2 Stade de France and from the A86 take exit 9 Saint-Denis - La Plaine Stade de France.

Both RER lines B and D can be taken from stations Ch-telet (10-minute ride) and Gare de Nord (5-minute ride). If you take line B, get off at station La Plaine Stade de France. If line D, get off at Stade de France Saint Denis.

Tram line 1 furthermore connects the stadium with Paris? eastern suburbs.

Address: Stade de France, 93216 Saint-Denis

Eat, drink, and sleep near Stade de France

The area surrounding Stade de France is not a highlight of France. It is a mix of the typical residential suburb, low-rise office parks, and industrial estates. There is little entertainment around. It is a short metro ride from Paris' city centre to the stadium though, so focus your eating and drinking on the many options available in the centre.

If you want to stay as close as possible to the stadium, there are few hotels near by. Many of the typical mid-level chain type hotels are around.

There is a Novotel hotel right opposite the stadium. It has decent reviews, but expect to pay at least $100.00. There is also an almost similarly priced Ibis hotel near metro station La Plaine, and the Adagio Access hotel near station Stade de France.

If you're on a budget, Hotel Campanile is the most affordable option. However, this means a bit of a walk in return. If you have more money to spend, the Courtyard by Marriott will likely have your preference. For all hotels near Stade de France, please click here.

One downside to staying near Gare Saint-Lazare is that hotels in this area tend to be pricier. However, there are many more options available in the city centre.

France National Team Tickets

There is currently no club team occupying the Stade de France as PSG play their home matches at the Parc des Princes. Tickets for matches of the French national team can be bought online on the Stade de France website (which also sells rugby tickets), and the website of the French Football Federation.

The Stade de France offers guided tours that include visits to the Presidential Lodge, changing rooms, players? tunnel, and a museum dedicated to the construction of the stadium and the events that have been held at it.

Relevant Internet links

The Stade de France is the official website of the stadium and Parisinfo.com is the official website for tourism in Paris. RATP.fr is a website for public transportation in Paris. The seats were very clean and comfortable, but if two large guys were to sit next to each other with winter coats on they might find the seats a bit tight. It was easy to leave the stadium, as it was packed and I did not see one empty seat. We were on a metro within 15 minutes and we did not leave the game until it was over.

All in all, would go again but with a bit more organisation. Mick Dilworth attended the Poland v Germany European Championship match at the stadium on 29 December 2016. He found the atmosphere to be decent, with plenty of places to get food and drink, but the toilets were a disgrace. He thought that access was easy, though there was a trip on a ram jam full metro for 14 stops with Germans and Poles mixed together. However, he didn't experience any aggro from either group of people. Overall, Mick Dilworth would go to the game again but with more organisation

from either side. I attended the Poland v Germany Euro match at the stadium. It was an absolutely monster stadium, and there were three security checks to get in. I expected the atmosphere to be decent, but I was disappointed. There was plenty of food and drink available, but the toilets were a disgrace. Or at least I expected them to be better. The metro was easy to use, but there was lots of mixing between Germans and Poles, without any aggression from either side.

now I lived in France for the past five years and every day I got a tour of the stadium by foot. I was really excited to have experienced it for just one day, but I like this place a lot now that I've been here for four years.

I have lived in France for the last five years and I have had the opportunity to tour the stadium by foot every day. I was really excited to experience it for just one day four years ago, but I really like this place now.

What a modern and clear stadium! The roof is made of beautiful glass, allowing the sunlight to be brought in everywhere. The staff is nice and helpful, and it's a great time in beautiful Paris.

I was a bit disappointed with this stadium. It seemed to me very miserable place. It is massive and modern but it did not impress me at all (the grey color everywhere). The staff around is very friendly. The area is very quiet and busy during the events, so plan in advance.

I recently went on a tour of the stadium with a tour guide named Reuben. He was amazing and made the experience really worth it. I would recommend going on a tour there if you have the chance!

Recently, I was in France with my school. We got an excellent tour around the stadium by a tour guide named Reuben. He was absolutely amazing and made it an experience worth while! I would highly recommend going there!

I imagine all of the 75,000 people taking the metro today would create chaos. Twice I almost got trampled by the crowds, and it took me over two hours to get on a metro train because of the queues. My advice is either leave early, or plan to have someone collect you (not easy).

Imagine 75000 people all taking the metro at once. This would create chaos, as twice I was nearly trampled by the crowds and it took me more than two hours to get on a metro train because of the queues. My advice is to either leave early, get somebody to agree a place to collect you (not easy), or pre-book a taxi collection.
