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.

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.

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)

Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
