Visitez le stade du Stade Toulousain - rugby

Rugby and football

Looking for an active holiday or original activities for your stay? The Ville Rose has many facets and behind its seemingly gentle lifestyle lies a fiery temperament, which takes on a life of its own on the rugby pitch, of course, but also on the football pitch! Let's step through the turnstiles of the stadiums.

Rugby; the oval ball is the beating heart of the city

Live matches, watching games on the terrace of a bar, shops and souvenirs... A visit to Toulouse would not be complete without a dive into the world of rugby. Here, the oval ball is revered and the players of the local team, Stade Toulousain, are cheered on at the Stade Ernest-Wallon. No match day during your stay? No problem; the Manatour Group opens the doors of the Ernest-Wallon and invites young and old alike to dive into the temple of Toulouse rugby.

Backstage at Le Stadium and at TFC

Prefer football to rugby? Head for Le Stadium on the Ile du Ramier for a visit organised by the Manatour Group to discover this mecca of Toulouse football. During your visit, you will discover the evolution of this sports venue, whose construction began in 1937, as well as all the events it has hosted since then.

This visit will of course also be an opportunity to talk about the local club, Toulouse Football Club (known as TFC or Téfécé) and will enable you to explore the backstage areas of the venue: dressing rooms, presidential boxes, press rooms... Feel the magic of the pitch in a fun and original visit!
