Parking near Geoffroy-Guichard stadium

The Geoffroy-Guichard stadium, where the rugby matches will take place, has a dedicated parking lot. However, it should be noted that these parking spaces can quickly become overcrowded on match days. It is therefore advisable to arrive early or to use public transport to get to the stadium.

If you’re staying in Saint-Étienne for any length of time, you may want to consider obtaining a residential parking card. This card allows you to park in certain residential areas of the city at a reduced rate.

Disabled parking

Disabled parking spaces are available throughout the city. These spaces are indicated by signs and ground markings.


In summary, parking in Saint-Étienne offers a variety of options to suit your needs. However, during the Rugby World Cup, it is advisable to plan ahead and use public transport to get to the matches, due to the expected crowds.
