Stade Les Diguieres(Grenoble RC) Stade Lesdiguieres is a multi-purpose stadium in Grenoble, France. The stadium holds 12,000. It is the home of the FC Grenoble rugby union club. The name of the stadium was given in honor of Francois de Bonne, Duke of Lesdiguieres, died in 1626.

The Stadium is made up of 5 stands, the largest of which is the Tribune Presidentielle to the south. The Tribune Tennis is on the east side, so called because it is next to a tennis club, and is the only stand which is uncovered. On the north side there are the Tribune Nord and Tribune Alberto stands, which lie adjacent to each other.

When the stadium hosted football venues, from 1998 to 2008, the Tribune Alberto welcomed the away supporters, as well as some home fans and the last stand, the Tribune Finet, was home to the noisiest fans of Grenoble Foot 38.

From 2008, the football venues are hosted by the Stade des Alpes and Lesdiguieres is today only used for Rugby union matches.

It hosted a match between France and Fiji at the 1991 Rugby World Cup.

The New Zealand national rugby union team also played a game on September 4, 1981 against a French Selection, which they lost 16 - 18, their only defeat of that 1981 tour in France.
