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.

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
