The Stade Olympique Yves-du-Manoir in Colombes, near Paris, France (also known as the Stade Olympique de Colombes, or simply Colombes to the locals) was the main stadium for the 1924 Summer Olympics and had a capacity of 45,000 at the time. It was later expanded to a capacity of over 60,000. Colombes was also the venue for the 1938 World Cup Final between Italy and Hungary.

Colombes hosted a number of French Cup finals and home games of the French national football soccer and rugby teams into the 1970s. It remained France's largest stadium until the renovated Parc des Princes was inaugurated in 1972. By that time, Colombes' capacity had dropped to under 50,000 due to more stringent safety regulations. The French national football team played its last game at Colombes in 1975.

French professional football team RC Paris used Colombes as their home ground until 1985 or so, then moved on to other stadia before coming back in the 2000s.

Racing Metro 92 rugby club have never left and are planning to redevelop Yves-du-Manoir into a 15,000-seat stadium to be shared with RCP football club.
