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.
