Stade de France

Home of the 1998 World Cup final, the Stade de France is a place of pilgrimage for all lovers of football, rugby and great concerts.

Inaugurated in 1998, the Stade de France is the largest multi-purpose facility in France: it boasts more than 80,000 covered seats to host the world’s biggest sporting events and shows.

Interesting for architecture fans and sports enthusiasts alike, thanks to its technology, aesthetics and functionality, it opens its doors to visitors with guided tours inside the structure and a museum dedicated to major sporting and musical events.

Visit the Stade de France

Since its opening in 1998, the Stade de France has hosted more than 350 special events and almost 30 million spectators.

The 1998 FIFA World Cup was held here, including the final between France and Brazil, which the hosts won, the athletics championship in 2003, the Rugby World Cup in 2007, two Champions League finals in 2000 and 2006, a European Football Championship final in 2010 and the UEFA European Championships in 2016.

Despite its grandeur and beauty, the Parisian football team has never trained here: in fact, PSG has always chosen to train at the Parc des Princes.

However, when in concert configuration, the Stade de France can accommodate up to 96,000 spectators in total, thanks to its retractable lower grandstand system. A huge capacity, which puts it ahead of other major stadiums in Europe such as Wembley or Twickenham in London and Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Stade de France tours

Guided tours are available in French and English, lasting 1 hour and 30 minutes. After visiting the stands, the changing rooms and the tunnel through which the teams enter the pitch, you can relive the magic of the trophy presentation from the top of the podium with a breathtaking view of the playground, which can be transformed into a gigantic concert hall.

Your guide will tell you anecdotes, crazy statistics, unsuspected places, you will walk in the footsteps of Zidane, Griezmann, Madonna and ACDC to discover all the secrets of the Stade de France. The visit includes free access to the Stade de France museum, which offers the opportunity to discover a series of archives, models, guitars and autographed jerseys, many unique objects linked to the history of France’s most legendary stadium.
