Stade de la Beaujoire

Capacity: 35 520 places


Stade de la Beaujoire played host to one of Rugby World Cup’s most iconic matches, as Fiji ran in four tries to beat Wales 38-34 and book their place in the quarter-finals. It was the last of three matches the stadium hosted during RWC 2007, with England beating Samoa and a happier memory for Wales fans, a 42-17 defeat of Canada.

The stadium first hosted a test on 15 November, 1986, when France beat New Zealand 16-3, and Les Bleus played a further six matches at the venue. The last of which was a 34-12 defeat of Fiji on 13 November, 2010. Opened in 1984, Stade de la Beaujoire is the home of Ligue 1 side FC Nantes and also hosted matches at UEFA Euro 1984 and FIFA World Cup 1998, including Brazil’s 3-2 win over Denmark in the quarter-finals. 

Four matches are scheduled to be played at Stade de la Beaujoire with Japan’s meeting with Argentina on the final day of the pool stage, the highlight for fans in town.
