In Toulouse, rugby is enjoyed all year round. From major international matches to local derbies and festivals, Toulouse is alive with rugby, from sevens, to league to union!

Toulouse; a hotbed of all forms of the game

The European Cup

This international competition is the reason why Stade Toulousain has so many stars on its shirt. When the Ernest-Wallon stadium hosts European Cup matches, Toulouse takes on the atmosphere of an international campus with English, Irish and Welsh supporters all finding a happy home in the pubs of the Ville Rose. Whether you’re a fan of one team or the other, the 3rd half brings all supporters together under the same banner: rugby and its values.

The Top 14

The national championship honours its winner with the most famous of trophies: the Brennus Shield. It’s the one that makes a tour of the bars in Place Saint-Pierre the day after the victory, the one that is held aloft on the balcony of Le Capitole, the one that makes the crowd jump to the tune of "Qui ne saute pas n'est pas tou-lou-sain!”

The Super League

This XIII rugby league competition brings together the most prestigious clubs in France and England. Toulouse Olympique XIII (known as T.O XIII) is the second French club to have entered this competition after our neighbours from Perpignan, the Catalans Dragons. Coming to Toulouse to watch a league match is an opportunity to see "XIII" play at the highest European level!

The World Rugby Sevens Series

The French rugby sevens team is a regular feature at the Olympic Games. This year, Toulouse will host some of the competition's matches with teams from around the world from 20th to 22nd May 2022.

The Rugby Union World Cup

In 2023, from 8th September to 22nd October, the Rugby World Cup will take place in France and Toulouse will play host to 5 of the tournament’s matches at Le Stadium. Toulouse is undoubtedly the perfect place to celebrate this event! 

The Festivals

The Toulouse rugby festival

The Place du Capitole is transformed into a rugby pitch. Every summer, this festival brings the turf to Toulouse's famous square and invites everyone to come and play rugby. Beginners' courses, activities, five-on-five touch rugby games and, of course, tournaments, are all part of this summer highlight.
July - Place du Capitole

Le WateRugby

A floating rugby field on the River Garonne, between the Pont-Neuf and the Dôme de la Grave, with the Hôtel-Dieu as a backdrop...could there be a more beautiful setting than the Garonne for a game of water rugby? This is the place to be if you want to have fun and meet lots of former international players. The tournaments are open to all, you just have to be prepared to get well and truly wet....
September - Port de la Daurade

And of course the Stade Toulousain fan’s favourite bar: Le Rouge et Noir, 3 Rue du Pont Saint-Pierre, in the Saint-Cyprien Quarter.

Where can you enjoythe famous 3rd half?

Place Saint-Pierre, of course! On the banks of the Garonne, with a view of the Dôme de la Grave, the square offers an ideal playground for all supporters. From Chez Tonton to the Basque Bar, via the Saint-Pierre, a great atmosphere is always guaranteed. On the evenings of the big matches, the square feels like a festival.
