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 needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)
Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.

Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap (Tue, 25 Apr 2017)
Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game. The other Saturday I passed a very pleasant afternoon watching London Scottish end their Championship season with a dismal defeat against … Continue reading Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)
Bath v Brive April 1 2017   Back in the early days of the Heineken Cup it wasn’t entirely clear if all this cross-border competition was good for the game. France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch
