Stade Jean-BouinEdit profile
Stade Jean-Bouin is a multi-purpose stadium in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, France. The facility, across the street from the much larger Parc des Princes, is currently used mostly for rugby union matches and is the home stadium of Stade Français. Through 2006, it hosted the annual Paris Sevens event in the IRB Sevens World Series, but that event has since been discontinued. Before its temporary closure for an expansion project that began in summer 2010, it seated 12,000 people, and is named after the athlete Jean Bouin, a 1908 Olympian. When it reopens in 2011, it will seat 20,000.
To accommodate the expansion, Stade Français has moved its primary home ground to Stade Sébastien Charléty, also in Paris, for 2010–11.
