Football in Paris

Ever think about taking a sports vacation to Paris? Venuture only minutes from your Paris apartment rental and not only can you experience all of the food and refined culture the city has to offer, you can watch some exciting soccer matches as well.

Even if you're not into sports, going to a foreign city to watch a sporting event is a really fun vacation idea. Seeing a world-class sporting event like "Le Classique," between Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille, can be thrilling even if you don't follow either team. Even if you can't make plans around that event, rooting for Parisian squads along with 48,000 other fans in Parc des Princes is sure to be exciting. 

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is the most notable soccer team in Paris. While they have had their ups and downs recently, PSG still has a faithful following of fans from all across France. Watching a match with such a devoted following of fans around you provides an electric atmosphere you will be sure to enjoy! PSG has not won a league title since 1994, but they did win the Coupe de France in 2010 and were runners-up in 2011.

There are many other Paris football club teams, including Red Star, RCF Paris, Stade Français Paris and Paris F.C. Even if you can't get a ticket into Parc des Princes, you can still watch one of these clubs battle it out. Because none of them are a top draw, tickets should be much easier to find. The stadium atmosphere will likely be more low-key as well, if you are concerned about boisterous and potentially obnoxious fans. In fact, there have been many violent outbreaks in Le Classique despite heightened security. While these engagements are serious and have led to arrests, they are still fairly rare. If you are at all concerned, however, you might want to attend a less-important match. Imagine watching an exciting match and then come back and relax in style and opulence in your luxury Paris rental. It will surely be one of your favorite vacations.

And if you really can't get off that couch, just take in a game from the comforts of your very own Paris vacation rental, hotel or Paris luxury apartment and you'll see what we're talking about.
