Newcastle United fans are strongly advised to avoid the Auteuil suburb of Paris and should take note of this when travelling to the Parc des Princes on matchday.

Street crime, including pickpocketing, can take place in Paris. Supporters are advised to be vigilant, take sensible precautions and ensure they have valid travel insurance.


Supporters are advised that passports must have been issued less than ten years before the date of entry to France (check the 'date of issue') and be valid for at least three months after the day of departure (check the 'expiry date').

Passports issued before 1st October 2018 may have extra months added to their expiry date which will not be valid when travelling to the EU. Supporters are advised to check their passports meet these requirements before travelling.


Supporters should plan their journey to arrive at the stadium no later than one hour before kick-off.

Newcastle United fans are advised to take metro line 9 to arrive at the stadium. Fans should get off the metro at 'Porte de Saint-Cloud' station. Upon exit of the station take the five-minute walk along 'Route de la Reina' in the opposite direction of the roundabout. This will bring you to the start of the entrance procedure for ticket holders in the away section.

'Porte de Saint Cloud' station is not accessible for wheelchair users. Wheelchair users can book parking spaces in advance (see below section).

Newcastle United fans are strongly advised not to use line 10 on the metro system which would result in supporters exiting the metro system in Auteuil.

Travel for the metro is not included in the ticket price; fans will have to purchase tickets independently to travel to and from the stadium.


There is no standard parking available at the Parc des Princes.  


There is specific accessible parking available for fans requiring easy access to the stadium for accessibility needs. This parking is in close proximity to the away sector but will require advance notice.

Fans requiring this parking should email [email protected] no later than Thursday, 23rd November.


All Newcastle United supporters with tickets in the away section will start the entry process on 'Route de la Reina' where the road meets 'Rue du Commandant Guilbaud'. Supporters will be directed down 'Rue du Commandant Guilbaud'; at this point there will be a soft ticket check to make sure your ticket is for the away section.

Fans will then walk down the street and turn right in to a sterile area for Newcastle United fans (pictured below). At this point there will be a body search completed by Paris Saint-Germain stewards and potentially a second body search conducted by the local police. Fans will then proceed to the turnstile to enter the away section. It should be noted this area is quite poorly lit; there will be several Newcastle United stewards available should anyone require assistance.  

Supporters in the lower section will be provided with a wristband on entry to the stadium, this will grant access to the lower tier of the away section. This wristband must be worn at all times to allow access. There will be no migration allowed from the upper tier to the lower tier.

Supporters in the away section will be surrounded to the left and right by large netting as pictured below.

Access to all sections of the away end is via stairs - for any supporters with accessibility needs please email disability support on [email protected] no later than Thursday, 23rd November and the club will register this and liaise with Paris Saint-German to provide support.

Supporters with Category 1 tickets will enter via gate 117 on 'Rue Claude Farrere' and are advised not to wear Newcastle United club colours. Entrance for Category 1 ticket holders is from 7.30pm.


All wheelchair accessible tickets are located in the away section. The entry process will be the same as outlined above. There will be a designated support line on the right-hand side of the searches to allow easier access. Fans are advised to arrive at least 90 minutes before kick-off for a smoother entry procedure.

In the location of the wheelchair access seats the position of the personal assistant seat is located behind wheelchair user seating locations.

If you require any further clarification or assistance on this, please email disability support with questions on [email protected]
