Stade Jean Bouin:

Stade Jean Bouin is a mythical and historic stadium, built in 1925. Located in the 16th district of Paris, near the Parc des Princes, it has been witness to some exciting games in the past. Back in 1997, it hosted the final of the women’s elite championship between Herm (Landes) and Saint-Orens (Haute-Garonne), won by Saint-Orens (30-17). Nathalie Amiel, the current French women’s team coach, was there on the field, wearing Saint-Orens colours. 

Seventeen years later, Stade français’s home stadium, with its twenty thousand seats, is ready to host six of the highest level women’s Rugby games, including both semi-finals, the third place play-off and the final, on 17 August, as well as two ranking games. The French team is guaranteed to play on this remarkable pitch. Parisiens as well as the world of French women’s Rugby hopes that Gaëlle Mignot and her teammates will reach the semi-finals, in Jean-Bouin, on Wednesday 13 August, and go on to play for the much-coveted title on Sunday 17 August.
