Welcome to the page dedicated to the history of the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium!
Home of the Paris-Saint Germain Handball and temple of French indoor sports, discover what makes the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium so unique, as well as the events that have forged its history over the years.
The first covered stadium built in France, the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium was hastily inaugurated in 1937 on the occasion of the Paris Universal Exhibition.
The French Basketball team triumphed over Latvia 25-24 in the final of the Nations Cup Basketball, an unusual competition also organised within the framework of the Universal Exhibition.
Scarred by the marks of the Second World War, the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium will be rebuilt at the end of the 1940s and will become the showcase of indoor sports in Paris.
The Stade Pierre de Coubertin, a figurehead of French sports heritage, will host the French indoor team from 1950 to the present day.
In 1955, French and German handball players will compete in this hall located at Porte Saint-Cloud, with a German victory at the conclusion of the match. The last international handball selection meeting in Coubertin saw the French women's team win against Slovenia 26-18.
Over the decades, we will see French basketball players facing the world's greatest teams (USSR, USA, Greece...).
The Stade Pierre de Coubertin is not to be outdone in the boxing world, but also in the individual disciplines. It will host the Paris Judo Tournament for three decades and will be the home of the Paris Women's Tennis Open between 1993 and 2014. Today, the best badminton players in the world compete every year at the French Badminton International, and the greatest fencers and karatekas do not miss their annual meeting in the 16th arrondissement.
On the occasion of the 2024 Paris Paralympic Games, the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium will host the Goalball events. This team sport, invented in 1946, is designed for the visually impaired and blind. It pits two teams of three opponents against each other who must score a sound ball into the opponent's goal by throwing it on the ground.
Two materials stand out as typical features of the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium: brick and glass. The latter combine to give it its inimitable character.
Witnessing the art deco architecture that symbolises the decade of its creation, the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium features a 1,000 m² glass roof with a view of the grounds from the reception hall and its mezzanine.
The proximity between the pitch and the stands makes Coubertin a warm place, where the sounds of the game and the songs of the Parisian fans can be heard and felt on both sides of the handrail.
Parisians' first steps at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin date back to the nineties, with in particular the Handball and Basketball sections of a Paris Saint-Germain omnisport. At that time, French sports legends such as Tony Parker and Jackson Richardson, each in their own discipline, wore the Red & Blue jersey.
Since 2012, the biggest names in French and world handball have set foot in Coubertin under the Parisian colours: Nikola Karabatic, Thierry Omeyer, Daniel Narcisse, Luc Abalo, Mikkel Hansen, Uwe Gensheimer, Sander Sagosen...
On April 29th, 2017, the Parisians face the Hungarian club Szeged in the quarter-finals of the EHF Champions League. While the European Cup matches were played in previous seasons at the Halle Carpentier, the Stade Pierre de Coubertin is now approved for these European matches and will see PSG qualify for its second Final 4 of the EHF Champions League.
Under the encouragement of the 8ème Homme, the Assidus and for the first time the Collectif Ultras Paris, the Rouge et Bleu maintained the advantage they had gained in the quarter-final first leg and qualified thanks to a 30 points draw everywhere.
For the closing of the Lidl Starligue championship on May 30th, 2018, the Parisians will host Chambéry.
At the end of this match, the Parisians will celebrate their 5th French championship title and pay tribute to the immense career of Daniel Narcisse.
Having won 10 titles in 5 seasons with Paris Saint-Germain, Daniel Narcisse hung up his number 25 in front of his family and friends during a final match against his formative club.
It is April 28th, 2019, the Parisians face the Polish team of Kielce for the quarter-final second leg of the EHF Champions League.
While they have 10 goals to make up for in order to hope to qualify for the Champions League Final 4, the equation is very complex.
And yet, in a packed Pierre de Coubertin Stadium, vibrating to the rhythm imposed by the Parisians, the gap is gradually closing. The Parisians were close to the exploit but came back with 9 of the 10 goals needed.
The 35/26 victory was not enough to reach Cologne, but the match and its volume of sound would inevitably have marked the fans present at Coubertin that day.
On June 5th, 2019, on the last day of the Lidl Starligue, PSG faced Cesson and won 29-20.
One year after Daniel Narcisse, Thierry Omeyer has come to retire and put an end to his immense career as a goalkeeper. His 5 seasons in the Parisian goalkeepers will have been crowned with 13 titles. The tribute will begin upon arrival at the Porte de Saint-Cloud with the fans at the end of the afternoon and will end in Coubertin during the celebrations of the 6th French championship trophy of PSG Handball.
On November 27th, 2019, as part of Lidl Starligue matchday 11, PSG Handball won its duel against Saint-Raphaël 39-26.
This victory marks the 56th match without defeat at Coubertin in all competitions, a record for a French club. The Parisians did not lose between 8 June 2017 (against Nantes) and 1 December 2019 (against Barcelona). The previous record was held by Montpellier, with a series of 50 home matches between February 2001 and November 2003.
In a season disturbed by COVID-19, the Stade Pierre de Coubertin has a reduced capacity on October 15th, 2020, for the match between PSG and Elverum.
This Champions League match, won 35-29 by the Parisians, marks the return of Luc Abalo to Coubertin. The French right winger will have won 17 titles in 8 seasons under the Parisian jersey, posting a total of 979 goals in 310 matches. At the end of this match, and as part of the tribute to this PSG Handball legend, a permanent banner was unveiled to Coubertin.
