Stadium & Tickets


The Ground       


Stadium Name  Stade Armandie

Stadium Address              Rue Pierre de Coubertin




The Stadium       The Stade Armandie is made up of two impressive stands which line the pitch. Most away fans are located in the Tribune Officielle opposite Tribune Albert Ferrasse.

The seating is partially covered. If you are sitting low down towards the front expect to get wet if it rains.

The best bet for anyone pitching up in town on the day of the match is to join the locals on the terraces behind the posts. There is plenty of scope for movement but it is completely uncovered. There is not much elevation either, so it can be difficult to see what’s going on at the other end.


Getting There    It is a good 20-minute walk from the centre of Agen to the stadium on the southern edge of town, but the best advice is to go by foot and avoid nightmare car-parking.

Signposting for the stadium is not widespread, but follow directions for Parc des Sports.

If you must travel by car, from the north head towards the Pont de Pierre Bridge, but do not cross it. Instead, continue south towards the major roundabout with the large McDonald's. The stadium entrance is a couple of     hundred yards away.

Telephone          (33) 5 53981264

Capacity               14,000

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward (Wed, 10 Jan 2018)
  Professional rugby union is operating on the brink, with spiralling player wages leading to smaller squads and everyone from World Rugby to Ross Moriarty being accused of greed as they look to maximise income. Sponsorship revenues continue to fall, and doubts persist over whether the next television deal will be worth the same as … Continue reading Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
