The Rugby Groud Guide

Tickets, Eating & Drinking

 

 

 

Tickets 

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"

                The hotel chain Ibis (www.ibishotel.com) has four hotels virtually by the stadium

Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)
Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.

Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap (Tue, 25 Apr 2017)
Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game. The other Saturday I passed a very pleasant afternoon watching London Scottish end their Championship season with a dismal defeat against … Continue reading Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)
Bath v Brive April 1 2017   Back in the early days of the Heineken Cup it wasn’t entirely clear if all this cross-border competition was good for the game. France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch
