  • I had the opportunity to participate in a very famous obstacle course organized for the first time at the mythical stage of France. Participants had the opportunity to climb the steps, climb in the stands, to run in the parking lot, take a picture next to the shirt of Zinedine Zidane or even enter the field as a football player. The place is huge (I had already come to watch a game from the France team) and very well thought out.

  • I went to race in the first european Spartan Stadium Race. The Stadium is amazing, clean, well build, with a perfect view of the field from every angle. Easy to understand where to enter when you are ...  more »
  • Not quite the atmosphere you would expect at Twickenham. The French don’t seem to be interested in the beer and most of the England supporters where silver haired and travelling with civilised groups....  more »

  • It is a must for people who love football. It is the most important football stadium in France. I am not sure if you can get inside, because I didn't even try to ask. But walking around it and feeling the emotions of the players is a very good thing.
  • Great stadium but very very poor administration takes much to long to get access to the ground! We live in a world where we all understand the need for security, but when wheel chair attendees have to queue with everyone else and argue there case for entry. While the only female security officer at the gate is trying to search women at an event with 80,000, makes me feel that either incompetence or a severe lack of planning should mean that some management should be asked some tough questions.
  • We were there to watch a rugby international and were very impressed at the crowd control and policing of the event. Our progress to the ground and to the Metro afterwards was smooth and the crowd good humoured. This enriched the whole event.
  • Visited to see rugby England v France. Getting in and out was straight forward. The journey to and from, on the metro was a real squeeze, if your claustrophobic travel very early! I thought there would have more bars and places to eat at the stadium itself (very few) and those that were there could have stayed open later so fans could disperse slowly to ease congestion on public transport.
  • We saw Coldplay here. Would have given it a dozen Stars if they allowed :) Very close walk to the station, good infrastructure, comfortable seating. Security at the entry too is well organized no matter how large the crowd.
