Metro, Tram, Bus
The Stade de France will open its doors at 5 p.m., the National Rugby League advises you to arrive as soon as possible in order to avoid transport problems. In any case, whether you are one of the latecomers or not, you can access the homeless by metro using lines 12 or 13. For the latter, get off at Saint-Denis – Porte de Paris station and you should have a ten-minute walk before arriving at the SDF. However be careful, at the end of the day, these lines are particularly busy.

You can also opt for the tramway, using line n°1, stop at Saint-Denis Basilique station. Unfortunately, you will have to walk about twenty minutes to reach the Stadium. On the other hand, line 8 will take you to Saint-Denis Porte de Paris station, which is closer. Finally, if you wish to use the buses, be aware that numbers 239, 153, 353 and 255 will take you directly in front of the SDF, Delaunay-Rimet station.
Access by car
A risky but doable choice. If you arrive at busy times on the Parisian ring road, on a Friday evening and during a strike, the risk of a traffic jam is almost certain. If you still choose the car, we advise you to come in advance and from the A1 motorway (Porte de la Chapelle), you can exit at exit 2 (Stade de France). Coming from the A86, use exit n°9 (Saint Denis – La Plaine Stade de France).
