After the Stade de France, the Parc des Princes is the largest soccer stadium in the Paris region, and has been home to Paris-Saint-Germain since the late 1970s. Accessible on guided tours, it is mainly used on match nights.

Nestled in the heart of the French capital, the Parc des Princes stands as a living witness to the rich and exciting history of French soccer. This emblematic stadium, located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, is the largest sports venue in the city, and boasts almost 47,000 seats to welcome fans of Paris-Saint-Germain, its resident club since 1974.

The Parc des Princes was built in 1897 as a velodrome. It had previously been used as a place for relaxation, hunting and walking by the king and royal princes, hence its name. Renovated in 1932, it played host to the French soccer and rugby teams until the inauguration of the Stade de France. It wasn't until the 1970s that the stadium acquired its legendary status, thanks to major renovations in anticipation of the 1998 UEFA Cup. A place of celebration for soccer fans, the Parc des Princes has welcomed legendary players such as George Weah, Pauleta, Raí, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.
