The Parc des Princes, which means Prince’s Park, got its name from its historical site, which used to be a hunting ground for the royal family. After the royal family’s fall, the ground became a velodrome with the same name, in the late 19th century. Cycling was a very popular sport at that time and Parc des Princes was the main venue for it. The stadium was the finishing line for Tour de France cycling competition from 1903 until 1967. Parc des Princes also started to become a venue hosting football matches starting 1903. In 1932, the stadium was opened again after a big renovation that revamped its seats and also facilities. It continued to hold big football championships, including the 1938 FIFA World Cup, and 1960 and 1964 UEFA European Championships. In 1965, a nearby bypass infrastructure building caused the need to redesign the stadium.

The current Parc des Princes is a stadium designed by Roger Taillibert, an architect that has experience in designing the Montreal Olympic Stadium in Canada. The stadium is considered a unique architecture piece today because of its unique concrete structure resembling razors from the exterior.
