The Stade de Paris (usually called Stade Bauer) is an 8,000-capacity football (soccer) stadium in Saint-Ouen, Seine-Saint-Denis in the northern suburbs of Paris. The stadium is mainly used by Red Star FC who currently play in the Championnat de France National but have tasted success in the Coupe de France, winning it on five occasions (1921, 1922, 1923, 1928, 1942).

It hosted some of the football events for the 1924 Summer Olympics. It also hosted a friendly game between Brazil and Andorra (3-0) during the 1998's World Cup in France

Stade de Paris was also the France national rugby league team's home ground for the 1935, 1936–37, 1938, and 1952–53 European Rugby League Championships.

Lately the stadium has fallen into bad shape, damaged heavily by a storm in 1999 and suffering from a lack of care since.
