The Rugby Groud Guide

Stadium & Tickets

 

Club History        The team participated in the first French championship                 final in 1892, and went on to win numerous titles during   the early 1900s.

 Stade Francais spent about 50 years in the lower divisions of French rugby, until entrepreneur Max Guazzine took  over in 1992, overseeing a rise to prominence, which saw the team returning to the elite division in just five seasons, and capture four French championships in seven years.

After a financial crisis plagued the club in 2011, Guazzini was forced to sell a majority stake and step down as club president.

               

The Stadium       Stade Francais was founded in 1883. Its traditional home is Stade Jean-Bouin, though the club has recently played some home games at the 80,000-seat Stade de France, taking anywhere from two to five matches to the larger venue each season since 2005/06.

Starting with the 2010/11 season, it moved its main home ground to the 20,000-capacity Stade Charlety to allow a new stadium to be built at the Jean-Bouin site.

               

Getting There    Stade Jean Bouin is in Porte de St-Cloud,in the south-west of the city, in the shadow of the Parc des Princes.

It is on Metro Line 9. From Gare du Nord, change fromline 4 or lin 5, and it is around a 40-minute journey.

When leaving the Metro station, Rue du Sergent Maginot or Avenue du Parc des Princes will take you to the stadium.
