The Parc des Princes, located in the southwest of Paris, was originally a multi-purpose venue and featured a cycling track, which is why the Tour de France used to finish here. Before that, the area on which the current stadium is located, was used as royal hunting grounds – a fact to which the stadium’s name, which translates to “Princes’ Park”, still pays tribute.

Nowadays, the Parc des Princes is mostly known as the home stadium of the football club Paris Saint-Germain and as France’s most famous stadium next to the Stade de France. The Parc des Princes, which can hold 48,712 spectators, is widely regarded as one of the most atmospheric arenas in the world: The avant-garde inspired 1970s construction is said to mimic a washbowl which acoustically enhances the chants of the fans. This has resulted in the press frequently referring to the stadium as “the soundbox”. On particularly thrilling match days, you can even feel the floor ripple under your feet when the crowd is jumping. Five fixtures of the UEFA Euro 2016 will be held at PSG’s home ground.

      Hey Huw,

      if you’re question is regarding tickets to the actual game, then unfortunately we cannot help you. In this case, you’d have to contact UEFA directly.

      However, if you enquiring about buses from Toulouse to Paris, then there’s a few options for your dad. The connection is operated by FlixBus, OUIBUS, isilines and megabus. Of these four providers both megabus and OUIBUS provide vehicles with wheelchair spaces. Both of them, however, actually require you to contact them and to book the wheelchair space at least 48 hours in advance. Nevertheless, we would recommend you directly contact these providers as soon as possible to see whether there’s a wheelchair spot on connections from Toulouse to Paris available. Info regarding departure times and current prices can be found when you use our search engine. Simply type in your point of departure and arrival and look out for OUIBUS and megabus offers.

      Best of luck to Wales, by the way!

      Best regards,
      Your CheckMyBus-Support
