Saint-Denis, a UEFA EURO 2016™ host city
Saint-Denis, a legendary venue for French football
Situated to the north of Paris, Saint-Denis is home to two sites which are of major importance for French history – the basilica-cathedral, burial site of the kings of France, and the emblematic Stade de France. Ever since France’s victory in the 1998 World Cup, this stadium has hosted some of the country’s most important cultural and sporting events. As a result, it is a natural choice of venue for the UEFA Euro 2016 finals.
