The Parc des Princes is a stadium synonymous with French sport, particularly football. It hosted major national and international competitions until the Stade de France opened in 1998 and is the home ground of Paris Saint-Germain. The stadium is located in the 16 arrondissement of Paris, just beside the Roland-Garros stadium (where the tennis, boxing, wheelchair tennis and sitting volleyball competitions will take place) and the Jean Bouin stadium. Open since 1972, it was designed by Roger Taillibert, the architect behind Montreal’s Olympic Stadium. Its unique design ensures spectators enjoy a clear view of the action from their seats, which are all within 45 m of the pitch.

The Parc des Princes was the first European stadium with lighting systems in its ring-shaped cantilevered roof, providing unobstructed views. It is renowned for its unparalleled acoustics and distinctive concrete shell. The stadium has evolved over time, adapting as standards changed over the past 40 years. The latest phase of renovation work – finished in 2015, just in time for Euro 2016 – involved creating a number of hospitality lounges, adding in two new rows of seating closer to the pitch, replacing 47,000 seats, installing a new-generation grass pitch and refurbishing all player and spectator facilities for an enhanced experience. Located at Porte de Saint Cloud, the Parc des Princes is easy to reach from the ring road around Paris or on public transport (Metro and bus lines).
