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"

                Suitehotel Paris St Denis

                Situated right outside the ground on Rue Jules Rimet.

               

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

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
