Stadium

The 48,000-seat Parc des Princes is actually the third stadium built on the site since 1903. It is a two-tiered oval originally designed with rugby in mind, which has led to the seats behind the goal being farther away from the field than in many football-specific stadiums. The exterior of the stadium, with its vertical ribs, is a landmark in the…
