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.

  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.

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward (Wed, 10 Jan 2018)
  Professional rugby union is operating on the brink, with spiralling player wages leading to smaller squads and everyone from World Rugby to Ross Moriarty being accused of greed as they look to maximise income. Sponsorship revenues continue to fall, and doubts persist over whether the next television deal will be worth the same as … Continue reading Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward

It was the fourth NFL game played in London this autumn, with the matches split between the home of English Rugby Union and Wembley.

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
