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
