Parc des Princes, Paris’s legendary football stadium
Paris plays all its home games in the modern Parc des Princes stadium.
However, we should take the word “modern” with a pinch of salt. Construction of this stadium was completed in 1972. That means compared to the construction of other stadiums, PSG can certainly say its home base is among one of the most modern in Europe.
However, clubs with older stadiums are starting to make plans to modernise; meaning it might be wise for PSG to do the same in the near future. Image is, of course, extremely important in the football world.
The stadium currently has a capacity of 47,929 spectators, and is covered.
If you go and attend a Paris match, you’ll no doubt be surprised by how friendly the atmosphere is there. Seeing a football match in a global city such as Paris really is an experience to strike off your bucket list.
The gates of Parc des Princes open 1.5 hours before the match commences.
How to get to Parc des Princes?
PSG’s modern football stadium is located in the west of the city in the Prince-Marmottan district, around ten kilometres from the centre.
Public transport in Paris is reasonably well organised. There are various metro trains and buses taking you to Parc des Princes.
However, we don’t recommend going to Parc des Princes by car or taxi.
Paris is a global city. That means it’s hard to predict how long you’ll be in a taxi. For instance: a taxi from Gare du Nord to Parc des Princes normally costs around €25 to €30 for a 25-minute trip.
However, on match days you might have to be in the taxi for longer. This of course then also leads to the price being higher. Bear in mind that this might well reach up to €50 or €60.
Opt instead for using public transport!
By Metro to Parc des Princes
Without a doubt, the best way to get to Parc des Princes is by metro.
If you’re coming from central Paris, you can take the green line 9. Final station: Porte de Saint-Cloud. This is around a five-minute walk to the wonderful Parc des Princes stadium.
The adventurous among us can also take the yellow line 10. This runs through Paris’s south bank. Final station: Porte d’Auteuil. Around a ten-minute walk to the stadium.

24 Rue du Commandant Guilbaud
BY BUS TO PARC DES PRINCES
If you’d like to get to Parc des Princes by bus, you can take the following lines: 22, 62 and 72.
These lines all stop in Saint-Cloud. This stop is around a five-minute walk to the stadium.
Again, for adventurous types: Buses 32 and 52 run to the stop Porte d’Auteuil. From this stop, it’s under a ten-minute walk to PSG’s stadium.
If it’s got late after the PSG match, there’s no need to worry. Simply catch the night bus, running between 0:30 5:30 in the morning. That’s a whole night out. You can take one of the following lines: N12.

To give you an idea of which tickets you should purchase for the best seats in the Parc des Princes for your football trip: This is a special stadium. For the most part, it is subdivided into four sides and three levels.
However, the Tribune Borelli stand – which is in the south – has four levels.
The stands in the Parc des Princes stadium are:

Information about Paris Saint Germain
Surprisingly enough, PSG is not such an old club.
The club was founded in August 1970. PSG is in fact the result of a merger between Paris Football Club and Stade Saint-Germain. As you’ve probably guessed: a group of businessmen were behind this. The intention was to establish a club for the elite.
When news of this new club became known in Paris, the celebrations were extensive. Finally, after all those years, there was a major club with huge potential. For Parisians, this historic moment was absolutely front-page news.
That huge potential was realised: in 1972, PSF was promoted to the highest class in French football, the Ligue 1. Their enormous success meant the club relocated to a new site: the legendary Parc des Princes stadium.
Nowadays, PSF has become a superpower in French football. They’ve attracted a whole host of top players throughout the years, such as Zlatan Ibrahimović, Neymar and Sergio Ramos.
And the icing on the cake is that they’ve performed one of the most legendary transfers for one of the most legendary players of all times: Lionel Messi.
Leo Messi has never played for any club other than FC Barcelona. So grab the opportunity to witness this legend play in his brand-new football shirt in Paris!
The PSG logo
PSG’s logo as we now know it was designed in 2013. Since then, it has remained unchanged.
The logo is abundantly clear: the proud Eiffel Tower in the centre, the name “Paris” in large letters and the royal, golden lily.
Fun fact: the golden lily symbolises royal power in France.
What to do in Paris?
Paris is a global city through and through. Fantastic for football, but also the perfect choice for a city break or long weekend.
The charismatic, amorous atmosphere, the charming terraces and – to top it all – the Eiffel Tower, invite you to visit. French cuisine always has something romantic in store, such as a red wine with a coq au vin.
That means if you’re visiting the city for a PSG match, there’s plenty of things to do for the rest of your stay. These are our favourite hangouts in Paris.
Pont Alexandre III + Les Invalides
Pay a visit to this famous Parisian bridge. It connects the Champs–Élysées with Les Invalides, and the Eiffel Tower.

Paris Saint-Germain - AS Monaco
12 January 2020
Paris is a wonderful City & lots to see & do (we stayed 4 nights). Our hotel, very near to the Eiffel tower was excellent and the metro system easy to use. However, the highlight was seeing PSG - the atmosphere at the stadium was the best I've ever been to & to see a 4-0 win was brilliant. After the game, it was easy to use the metro to get back to the hotel. The service offered from Football break was great from beginning to end. Id highly recommend!
Tip: Pre-book all major attractions - especially the Eiffel Tower to save queuing.

The package was excellent value. The hotel was fairly basic, very small rooms and poor breakfast. Being on a main road meant it was noisy during the night. However we enjoyed the trip the game and stadium were great.
