Football in The France

We all know French football players like Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé. When playing for the French national team, they play in the ‘Stade de France’. This is the official stadium of the French national team since 1998 and is located just outside of Paris.

Only 30 minutes from the Stade de France you can find Parc des Princes, home base of Paris Saint-Germain and the last stadium Claude Makélélé called home during his career as a football player.

Besides Paris Saint-Germain, France is known for Ligue 1 clubs like Olympique Marseille, FC Nantes, Olympique Lyon and Lille OSC.
