The Stadium Aime Giral was 18 when he kicked the late conversion that gave USAP an 8-7 win over Tarbes, and USAP their first French championship in 1914.
A few months later he was dead, killed on the Western Front. The stadium is named in his honour.
The 12,000 capacity stadium has three impressive stands, two of which run the length of the pitch, with the Chevalier (main stand) on the west and the Desclaux (which has terracing on the front) on the east.
High wire fences and the design of the terraces make the standing option less attractive but the atmosphere more than compensates.
Most seating is covered but those with a weather eye might want to note that the roofing does not cover the northern end of the Desclaux.
