The Stade Jean-Bouin (French pronunciation: [stad ʒɑ̃ bwɛ̃]; lit. 'Stadium of Jean Bouin') is a multi-purpose stadium in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, France. The 20,000 capacity facility is located across the street from the much larger Parc des Princes, and is used mostly for rugby union and association football matches. It is the home stadium of Stade Français and FC Versailles.
The stadium was opened in 1925, and is named after the athlete Jean Bouin, the 5000 metre silver medalist from 1912 Olympics. It was the venue for the France Sevens leg of the World Rugby Sevens Series in 2005, 2006, and 2017–20. Before its temporary closure for an expansion project that began in summer 2010, it seated 12,000 people, The stadium reopened in 2013 with seating for 20,000 spectators. To accommodate the expansion, Stade Français moved its primary home ground to Stade Sébastien Charléty, also in Paris, for 2010–11. Stade Jean-Bouin hosted the semi-finals, third-place match, and final of the 2014 Women's Rugby World Cup. Since 2018, the Paris Saint-Germain Féminines football team also plays its home matches at Stade Jean-Bouin.
