Stade De France

Capacity: 80 023 places


Built for the FIFA World Cup 1998, France’s national stadium has since also become home for the country’s rugby team. Les Bleus first played in Saint-Denis on 7 February, 1998, when Philippe Bernat-Salles and the late Christophe Dominici both crossed the whitewash in a 24-17 defeat of England.

In total, Stade de France has hosted 97 men’s test matches — including an RWC 1999 quarter-final and the France 2007 final. South Africa beat England in both of those matches, and the Springboks will return to the iconic stadium on 23 September, 2023 to play Ireland — the first time that fixture will be played at Rugby World Cup.

In total, Stade de France will host 10 matches at RWC 2023, including the mouthwatering opening match between Les Bleus and the All Blacks, both semi-finals, the bronze final and the final.
