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"

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.

Could ending promotion solve rugby’s problems? (Tue, 17 Oct 2017)
  We could be witnessing the start of a perfect storm for English rugby:  too many clubs losing too much money, ever-increasing demands on players to the extent that strike action has been mentioned, and PRL’s latest whizz, the controversial suggestion that the domestic season should run from September through to the end of June. … Continue reading Could ending promotion solve rugby’s problems?

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.
