The Rugby Groud Guide

Eating,Drinking & Sleeping

 

At the Ground:

There is something of a unique system in place for drinks inside the stadium. You rent a plastic glass for a small fee and obtain vouchers for your drinks. Then you head to a bar to get served.

 

Other Places to Eat & Drink:

In a town which is twinned with a similar industrial area,   Salford in England, rugby fans migrate towards Le Cafe Pascal, (4 Place de la Victoire), near the cathedral, which was opened by a former Clermont second row,

Other bars nearly include:

The Ovak: 107 Avenue de la Republique

Le Matchiko: 56 Avenue de la Republique.

               

Accommodation:

Most of Clermont's hotels are concentrated just off the place de Jaude, close to the town's main shops, and around the rather characterless station area.

There isn't a tremendous choice, but they are generally                good value.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

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?
