I was at Lille lyon in 2008 and trust me even my girlfriend found the lightening was so weak for such a stadium!!
there's a difference between what we see in tv and what we see in reality...I know it's surprising but it's the true!!

This stadium's normal capacity is around 80,000 for football, and it is reduced somewhat to 70-75,000 for athletics events.

So why did you change the cap. in the title ????? BTW thanks :) !

An article made by the French football league (about euro 2016):

L’incontournable
Stade de France


C’est le stade symbole de la Coupe du Monde 1998, celui du triomphe du 12 juillet. Construit pour l’événement, le Stade de France est aujourd’hui l’enceinte nationale la plus grande avec une capacité brute de 81338 places. Le Consortium du Stade de France en a la concession pour 30 ans.
Classé 5 étoiles par l’UEFA, il a depuis 1998 accueilli deux finales de Ligue des Champions en 2000 et 2006, et la finale de la Coupe du monde de rugby en 2007. Chaque année s’y déroulent les finales de la Coupe de la Ligue et de la Coupe de France. Les Bleus y jouent au moins trois fois par an et le LOSC délocalise des matches de Ligue des Champions et de Ligue 1. Doté de 6000 sièges VIP et 2900 places de loges, il a fait récemment l’objet de travaux de modernisation (nouveaux écrans géants). Si l’absence de club résident constitue un point d’ombre, le Stade de France figurera en pole position pour organiser l’Euro.

Surely its best attendance would have been the world cup final, or am I missing something?

Yes, it was ;) :

Its official capacity is 81,338. Its best attendance was 80,430 during the rugby world cup final :


But, since the last French FA Cup final (2009), its new crowd record is: 80, 832 :cheers: !

As far I know, In 2008 it also broke the world's attendance record for a rugby regular season game ! (79,793).

Off topic, but are there any planned upgrades for the athletic facility adjacent to Parc des Princes? The proposed Paris 2012 hockey venue.
