Parc des Princes
UEFA capacity: 45,000

• Situated in the southwest of the French capital, the Parc des Princes owes its name to its location on terrain used as a royal hunting ground in the 18th century.
• The current stadium is the third to have been built on the site, the first opening its doors in 1897 and the second following in 1932.
• The Parc des Princes was the finishing point of the Tour de France from 1903 to 1967; it also boasts a long history as an international rugby venue.
• It has hosted six European club football finals, including the first ever European Champion Clubs' Cup showpiece in 1956 when Real Madrid CF beat Stade de Reims Champagne 4-3.
• In addition to staging games at the 1938 and 1998 FIFA World Cups, the stadium was the venue for the 1960 and 1984 UEFA European Championships finals.
• The renovation of the Parc des Princes, which will improve services for the general public while also boosting the capacity to 45,000, is due for completion by mid-2015.
