The Stade de France® was officially born in 1992, when FIFA decided to entrust the 1998 Football World Cup to France.
The Stade de France®'s capacity varies depending on the sport hosted: reaching 80 000 when footballmatches are organised, and 71 000 fans for athletics competitions.
The Stade de France® is capable of hosting any sport. Some of the highlights of Athletics history occurred there, at the 2003 World Championships.
Stade de France® knows how to host great events. It is the centrepiece of Paris 2012's project.
By day or by night, inside or out, Stade de France® shines by its architecture, worthy of an Olympic Stadium.
