The Stade Jean-Bouin is the home of Stade Français Paris Rugby, one of the most successful rugby union clubs in France. The stadium opened in 1925 and is named after the athlete Jean Bouin, who won a Silver medal in the 5,000 metres at the 1912 Summer Olympics and set world records in the 3,000 metres, 10,000 metres and one-hour run before his death serving during World War I.
The stadium has hosted the Paris Sevens, a leg on the World Rugby Sevens Series since 2016, as well as previously in 2005 and 2006. The semi-finals, third-place match and Final of the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup were also held there with England winning the tournament after defeating Canada 21-9.
Although predominantly a rugby venue, Red Star Football Club played their home matches there for several seasons in the late 2010 whilst Paris Saint-Germain Féminine have called the Stade Jean-Bouin home since 2018.
