Six Nations, France v Scotland

There will be reinforced security patrols in place at the France v Scotland Six Nations rugby match in Paris on Sunday 12th February. If you are travelling to the match, you should arrive early at the Stade de France, and follow the advice of the local authorities.

The following is a translation of the guidance shown on the Federation Francais de Rugby website.


Due to the current level of the terrorist threat and the preventative security measures in force, very strict security checks will be carried out on spectators travelling to the Stade de France.

The FFR invites all the fans to arrive early at the stadium, where the doors will open from 14:00. 

The first level of control will be provided with the installation of several pre-filtering points near the Stade de France. A second level of control with security will be carried out at the doors of the Stadium with storage or seizure of forbidden objects (alcohol, weapons, firecrackers, laser, megaphone, vuvuzela, fog horn, glass bottle, metal can, object Bulky, rigid umbrellas, telephoto lenses, rigid booms, fumigants, pyrotechnic devices, etc.). Latecomers who will also be subject to these strict security checks will risk missing the start of the game.

The relevant guidance can be found here on the FFR website. Please be aware this is in French.
