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.

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

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward (Wed, 10 Jan 2018)
  Professional rugby union is operating on the brink, with spiralling player wages leading to smaller squads and everyone from World Rugby to Ross Moriarty being accused of greed as they look to maximise income. Sponsorship revenues continue to fall, and doubts persist over whether the next television deal will be worth the same as … Continue reading Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward

The RFU was no … Continue reading Watch Out – The Americans are coming!

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
