MATCHES TO BE PLAYED IN SAINT-DENIS
Medieval city, royal necropolis, iconic place of the industrial revolution and now lively metropolis, Saint-Denis is an open-air history book full of treasures. Here you’ll find the Basilica of Saint-Denis, Street Art Avenue, flea markets and the Cité du Cinéma, which gathers studios, students, professionals, and talents of the “seventh art.”
And the Saint-Denis movie continues to play out daily. A stone’s throw from the centre of Paris, this city which bursts with energy draws its strength from its dynamism and continues to reinvent itself.
Saint-Denis is also home to the temple of French sport, the Stade de France. It is the country’s largest venue, hosting legendary music concerts and being home to some of the most iconic sporting events in history; the 1998 FIFA World Championship, the 2003 IAAF World Championships, Rugby World Cup 2007 and UEFA Euro 2016, just to name a few.
The venue of the opening match and the final, the Stade de France will continue this glorious lineage with Rugby World Cup 2023.
