Parc des Princes
Parc des Princes is an iconic venue in the history of French sport, located in the City of Light’s 16th arrondissement. It stands out in the Porte de Saint-Cloud landscape with its iconic concrete columns that crown its roof. Built in its current form in 1972, and designed by the architect Robert Taillibert, who was also behind Montreal’s Olympic Stadium, the “Parc” was the country’s largest stadium until the Stade de France was built in 1998. This stadium is ideally positioned to host the Paris 2024 Games.
In addition to being the home of Paris Saint Germain since 1974, the Parc des Princes has staged many matches for the French football and rugby teams, as well as major international competitions, including the 1998 Football World Cup and the Euro 2016 Football Championship, alongside major concerts by French and global stars. When it was France’s largest stadium for over 25 years, it also staged the finals of the Coupe de France for football and the French rugby union championship each year. Its most recent renovation was carried out for Euro 2016.
Capacity: 47,926 spectators
