Paris Stadiums Overview

Parc des Princes - Stadium in Paris

If you only have one chance to check out a Paris stadium and you’re a big fan of soccer – or even if you’re only a mild fan – then you have to head to Parc des Princes. With room for nearly fifty-thousand, Princes is the home stadium for soccer club Paris Saint-Germain, one of the most prestigious soccer clubs in Europe that regularly sells out the stadium every time they take the field.

An even bigger soccer venue is Stade de France, the national stadium of France located just north of the city. With room for eighty-thousand it is one of the bigger stadiums in all of Europe, and hosts not only France’s national soccer team (Equipe de France) but also rugby and major touring concerts.

Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy – usually abbreviated as POPB or Bercy – is an über modern indoor sports complex and stadium that’s used for a wide range of events, including the Paris Masters ATP Tour tennis tournament, basketball, boxing, gymnastics, track cycling, and of course concerts as well.

Another popular multi-use Paris stadium is Palais des Sports which, despite its name, schedules just as many musical acts as it does various sporting events, and is considered by many to be one of the better venues in and around Paris for both acoustics and visibility no matter where attendees sit.

Clearly there are many stadiums in Paris to see, so put down that bottle of wine and drop that cheese and go get yourself to one! Okay…you can bring the cheese…and the wine.
