Getting tickets to France matches is relatively simple. The Federation Francais de Rugby (FFR) carve up the tickets between their rugby clubs and the visiting rugby union who receive around 8,000 tickets. The FFR then offer the general public around 5-7,000 tickets that go on sale via the FFR website (www.ffr.fr) as well as on www.francebillet.com
There is a booking and information line for disabled fans on (33) 11 532 11515
There are about 1,100 disabled spaces.
Other Attractions: All but three of the Kings of France are buried at the Basilica of Saint-Denis, about a kilometre north of the ground.
It is open from 10.00 - 18.15 in the summer (17.00 in winter)
Eating and Drinking There are some established bars around the ground, mostly to the north, and many temporary ones inside the ground as you walk up from the stations, but many fans prefer to drink at Gare du Nord in bars such as the popular Le Falstaff and then make the short 10-minute train journey to the match.
Eating and Drinking near the stadium:
Au Pavillon (54 Rue Gabriel Peri, 93200 Saint Denis)
Paddy Wacks (4 Boulevard Anatole France)
Le Maryland (34 Rue Gabriel Peri, 93200 Saint-Denis)
Au Soleil D'Or ( 10 Rue de la Boulangerie, 93200 Saint-Denis)
Supporters leave almost immediately after the action. There is little post-match drinking and eating, and most fans head for the city.
Accommodation There are plenty of big chain hotels in the area for spectators, who fancy staying close to the ground, handy if the match is one of the regular night-time kick-offs, although the area around the stadium might best be described as "industrial"
