The Stadium      The Stade Marcel Michelin , with the Puy de Dome (lava dome) dominating the skyline, is a thoroughly modern                stadium after renovations in 2006 and 2011.

The stadium is located 3km to the north-east of the centre of Clermont-Ferrand, and has undoubtedly one of the best atmospheres in club rugby. Further development is planned to take the capacity to 20,000.

The stadium is fully enclosed and compact, with the steep sides keeping supporters close to the action. The oldest stand is the Volvic, a two-tiered stand made up of 22 small blocks of seating that runs the length of the pitch. Sitting opposite is the Auvergne stand, again with two tiers of seating. To the left of this stand behind the posts lies the Espace Edouard, with a small area of seating and hospitality boxes. At the other end is the rather odd-looking Philiponeau stand, with two tiers of seating on the upper level. There is standing space in front of all four stands.

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
