The Rugby Groud Guide

Stade de France - The Basics

 

 

Introduction: Saint-Denis was the first to bring the name of Jesus Christ to Roman Gaul. He was the first Bishop of Paris and was martyred by the Romans for his faith.

Saint Denis was decapitated on Montmartre, but he did not die. Legend has it he picked up his head and carried it as he walked, headless and barefoot, all the way to the village that would take his name.

               

The Stade de France can at times be one of the best stadiums in the world to watch rugby. Although it may not be the most beautiful stadium, what it lacks in looks it more than makes up for with its personality. There is something special experiencing French fans in full song, and when the whole stadium launches into La Marseilles the atmosphere is unbeatable.

However, things can change in an instant and if the home side are not performing the atmosphere can quickly turn sour.Altough the ground lacks the "je ne sais quoi" of the Parc de Princes, on the practical side, the Stade de France is extremely easy to reach by public transport, the seats are comfortable, and views from the stands are good.

It was completed in 31 months at a cost of 400million euros, jointly financed by private interests and the French state.
