Goal 2023 World Cup

The Ligue Occitanie de Rugby (LOR) does not wish to relive the episode of the 2007 World Cup and find itself overwhelmed by registration requests without being able to give a favorable response. Today, all the lights are green to welcome the future stars of tomorrow (infrastructure, equipment, staff, etc.). And everything will be put in place to make this event a success.

Toulouse residents and visitors will be entitled to the establishment of Fan Zones, when access to the stadium is not possible. Other events during the competition will get the pink city moving!

These new facilities at the LOR could also be used for professional purposes, for outside companies for example.
