Castres - the Basics

Introduction      In 1898 several alumini of Castres' municipal college met in a city centre bar and decided to form a rugby union team

They were part of a multisport club, but in 1906, unhappy with the dominant position cycling had within the club, the members of the rugby section decided to leave and create a club of their own, calling it Castres Olympique
