Because “Cali” sings the oval

Christian Califano, the former pillar of Stade Toulouse and the French team (from 1994 to 2007), is the sponsor of this Lille Métropole Rugby Festival. Available, he also follows with interest the meetings that are disputed between kids: “ There is potential in the way of taking the ball and the spaces. We hope that the clubs in the region will recover some players. »

Because it’s not every day that natural grass “grows” in front of the Beaux-Arts

Playing ball, at the foot of the Palais des Beaux-Arts, is a memory that young people from the different rugby sections of the region should keep for a while.

Because the Shield of Brennus is exposed there.

Montpellier in 2022, Stade Toulousain in 2021, no one in 2020 because the French championship stopped during the season, Stade Toulousain again in 2019… all the major French clubs in rugby 15 have registered their names on the Shield of Brennus. A reward named to the winner of the Top 14, the Shield is displayed in the rugby village.

Because the countdown is on

We are less than a year away from the Rugby World Cup in France, which takes place from September 8 and October 28, 2023.

Because there are 5 World Cup matches at “Pierre-Mauroy”.

Strolling through the village is also an opportunity to remember the schedule of matches that will be played at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium: France-Uruguay on September 14, England-Chile on September 23, Scotland-Romania on September 30, England-Samoa on October 7 and Tonga-Romania on October 8.

On the Place de la République, until Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Organized by Midi Olympique and the Hauts-de-France rugby league. Also on site: debates, events, conferences and a job fair.
