Stadium & Tickets

 

The Ground       

Stadium Name  Parc des Sports Aguilers

Stadium Address              Rue Cino Del Duca

                64200 Biarritz

The Stadium       Biarritz play their home matches at the Parc des SportsAguilera, but sometimes move big games across the border to Estadio Anoeta in San Sebastian,Spain.

The Biarritz fans are famously passionate. At the end of the temporary seating a small band will try and encourage their team by banging away on steel drums.

Parc des Sports Aquilera is a modern stadium with stands named after two of the most significant figures in the history of the club: Serge Blanco and Serge Kampf.

Kampf is one of the richest men in France, and his millions helped recruit players such as Imanol Harinordoquy and Dimitri Yachvili, and saw them reach Heineken Cup finals in 2006 and 2010, although they were beaten in both.

The stadium is relatively small, so Biarritz play some big games over the Spanish border at Estadio Anoeta in San Sebastian, the home of Real Sociedad FC.

 

Getting There    Biarritz is surprisingly small so you don't need to worry   too much about setting off for the ground early. It is to the    east of the centre and is a pleasant 20-minute walk straight up Avenue de Verdun.

Or you can take the STAB buses which leave every 10 minutes from Rue Louis Barthou near the tourist office.

 

If driving follow the signs for Parc des Sports.

There is plenty of parking in Biarritz with at least four car parks in the centre.

Telephone          05 59 01 64 60

Fax         05 59 01 64 63

Capacity               15,000

 

Tickets  You can buy a ticket by going to the ticket office before a game or buy one on the day

Away supporters are usually housed at one end of the impressive main stand. The opposite stand is not quite so   good-it doesn't run the entire length of the touchline.

 There is temporary seating at one end and the other is open to the elements.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
