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

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
