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.

Capacity               14,000

Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.

Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap (Tue, 25 Apr 2017)
Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game. The other Saturday I passed a very pleasant afternoon watching London Scottish end their Championship season with a dismal defeat against … Continue reading Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)
Bath v Brive April 1 2017   Back in the early days of the Heineken Cup it wasn’t entirely clear if all this cross-border competition was good for the game. France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch
