The Stade Jean-Bouin is a multi-purpose stadium in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, France. The facility, across the street from the much larger Parc des Princes, is currently used mostly for rugby union and association football matches and is the home stadium of Stade Français. It hosted the Paris Sevens tournament of the IRB Sevens World Series in 2005 and 2006; it will return for the 2015-16 season.

Before its temporary closure for an expansion project that began in summer 2010, it seated 12,000 people,[2] and is named after the athlete Jean Bouin, the 5000 metre silver medalist from 1912 Olympics. The stadium reopened in 2013 with seating for 20,000 spectators.

To accommodate the expansion, Stade Français moved its primary home ground to Stade Sébastien Charléty, also in Paris, for 2010–11.

The semi-finals, third-place match, and the finals of the 2014 Women's Rugby World Cup were held at Stade Jean-Bouin.

The stadium is right next to the Parc des Princes, the home of Paris Saint Germain.
