The Ola’s, the strutting cockerels, the Mexican waves – welcome to the Stade de France and a unique matchday experience.
Paris is special. It thrives on a big event and there is no bigger sporting occasion than when England are in town.
The Stade de France is the national stadium of France, situated just north of Paris in the commune of Saint-Denis. It has an all-seater capacity of 75,000 making it the sixth largest stadium in Europe, and is used by both the France national football team and French rugby union team for international competition.
The final trip of the trio is to Les Bleus – and a re-enactment of past battles. There is something about the history of England v France that means it’s a little bit special.
Remember the battles of the 70s, England’s triumphant 1991 Rugby World Cup success, Philippe Saint-Andre’s try from nowhere at Twickenham and so much more. It is always compelling, always brilliant.
And that’s not all. Paris is a wonderful weekend away. From its bustling bars, chock-full cafes, food, nightlife and things to see and do, Paris should be high on the list of every England fan. Let us take you there – it’s easy, hassle free and you won’t be disappointed.
