Club: Paris Saint-Germain FC | Opening: 1972 | Capacity: 48,527 seats
Parc de Princes was built to provide the city of Paris with a modern venue for important rugby and football matches. The stadium replaced the old Vélodrome, that had stood in its place since 1897.
Parc des Princes was officially opened on 4 June 1972 by French president Georges Pompidou. The first match was the Coupe de France final between Marseille and Bastia (2-1).
The stadium, designed by architect Roger Taillibert, was lauded for its avant garde design and received several architectural prices. Its most striking feature were the 50 concrete columns that support the ring-shaped roof.
One year after the opening, in 1973, newly founded Paris Saint-Germain moved into the stadium.
In the following decades, Parc des Princes regularly hosted matches of the French national team, Coupe de France finals, and it was the playing venue of several European Cup finals.
The first of these finals was the European Cup final between Bayern München and Leeds United (2-0) in 1975, which was followed by the Cup Winners’ Cup final between Anderlecht and Austria Wien (4-0) in 1978, and the European Cup final between Liverpool and Real Madrid (1-0) in 1981.
In later years, Parc des Princes would host the Cup Winners’ Cup final between Real Zaragoza and Arsenal (2-1) in 1995, and the first ever single-leg UEFA Cup final between Inter and Lazio (3-0) in 1998.
Since the opening of Stade de France in 1998, however, the stadium has seen the number of international matches reduced to just one.
In 1984, Parc des Princes was the principal playing venue of the Euro 1984 championships, hosting two group matches and the final between France and Spain (2-0).
Fourteen years later, the stadium was one of the playing venues of the 1998 World Cup, this time hosting four group matches, a round of 16 match, and the match for third place between Croatia and the Netherlands (2-1).
While still one of France’s most modern stadiums, PSG’s new owners have recently contemplated a large expansion or rebuilding of the stadium. However, as Parc des Princes was selected as one of the playing venues of the Euro 2016tournament and works would not be finished in time, it was instead decided to only refurbish the stadium for the Euros and reinvestigate the option to redevelop after the tournament.
During Euro 2016, Parc des Princes hosted four first round group matches and the round of 16 match between Wales and Northern Ireland (1-0).
Ireland played their first Six Nations home games at Aviva Stadium in 2011, following the opening of the venue in May 2010.
The stadium, which boasts a 57,100 capacity, sits on the site of Irish rugby's former home Lansdowne Road, which was demolished for rebuilding in 2007.
Unlike Lansdowne Road, which was solely owned by the Irish Rugby Football Union, Aviva Stadium is jointly owned by the Irish Rugby Football Union and the Football Association of Ireland.
The first rugby match played in July 2010 at the stadium was a combination of Leinster and Ulster Under-18 and Under-20 players against their Munster and Connacht counterparts - the former romped to a 68-0 victory.
The first international rugby fixture played at Aviva Stadium was in November 2010 with Ireland welcoming South Africa for the first of four autumn games.
Unfortunately for Ireland they were narrowly beaten by the Springboks, losing 23-21, despite Tommy Bowe and Rob Kearney running in late tries.
Following the demolition of Lansdowne Road, Ireland temporarily played their home games at Croke Park - headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association - until construction of the stadium was complete.
Aviva Stadium hosted its first European Rugby Champions Cup final in May 2013, ten years after Lansdowne Road last hosted it, as an all-French clash saw RC Toulon edge past ASM Clermont Auvergne 16-15.

The stadium has a sliding roof and an artificial pitch. It is also the standard playing venue of the Kazakhstan national team.
