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.

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?

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
