The Rugby Groud Guide

Stadium & Tickets

Stadium Name  Stade Pierre-Antoine

Stadium Address              Rue de Bisseous

                                                81100 Castres

 

The Stadium      There are only three stands at the stadium

The two stands alongside the touchline are called Tribune Principale and Tribune Gabarrou, both of which offer covered seating.

Tribune Nord, behind the goalposts, does not.

Overall, the stadium is pretty basic, with bars underneath the two main stands.

               

Getting There   Central Castres is quite small and is easily navigated by foot. The L'Agout river bisects Castres north to south with the majority of the restaurants and old town located on the west bank.

The stadium is located to the north-east and is around a 10-15   minute walk from the river. Cross the river at the Pont Vieux. Cross east through the Place Roger Salengro and the        Place Sainte-Claire until you get to the Boulevard Carnot.

From there take the Rue Soeur Audenet to the stadium.

Most fans going to a game in Castres stay in Toulouse,(about an hour away by train). So make your way to the town by train, go into town for a few beers, and then follow the fans to the ground on the outskirts of town.

 

Tickets

Tickets can usually be bought on the night of the match  at the sales point at the stadium by the Tribune Nord

It is also possible to buy tickets in Castres itself from:

Cafe Le Fair Play, on Place de l'Albinque

Auchan, on Route de Toulouse

Cafe Le Progres, on Place Soult.
