Pierre de Coubertin Stadium Olympic Venue

Capacity 3,466

Paralympic Games


The Pierre-de-Coubertin stadium is an iconic indoor sports venue in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, just a stone’s throw away from the Parc des Princes and the Roland-Garros stadium. Built for the 1937 International Exhibition held in Paris, the stadium is named after the founder of the modern Olympic Games, who passed away that same year. Over
the years, this local stadium turned into a highly functional sports complex. In 1990, the stadium was fully renovated by architect Didier Drummond, boasting a new facade,
an increased seating capacity of 4,000, a more modern main arena, as well as athlete preparation areas that were twice the size of the previous facilities. A 1,000 m2 glass wall enables spectators to get in on the action as soon as they step into the complex. Offering a friendly atmosphere, the arena has hosted a number of international events in recent decades – involving sports such as judo, boxing, fencing, tennis, gymnastics, basketball and volleyball – and is home to French handball club PSG Handball. The stadium will soon undergo development works to improve accessibility ahead of the goalball events at the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.
