Though construction is already underway on Bordeaux's new football (soccer) stadium in preparation for Euro 2016, there is still plenty of time to catch a match at the historic Stade Chaban-Delmas, current home of the city's FC Girondins. Noted for their intense loyalty and support of the team, watching a game with 30,000+ uncharacteristically rowdy French fans is an incredibly exciting experience, allowing visitors to participate in one of the more boisterous elements of contemporary Bordelais culture. Grab some tickets (early, if you intend on watching some of the more celebrated rivalries), some friends and a few drinks and prepare for a few hours of intense football action in French wine country.
Location:Place Johnston, 33000, Bordeaux
Note:Tickets can be purchased online or at the stadium. Check out our link for more info.
