Toulouse Rugby: an institution

wellness & sport

Toulouse aspires to be the capital of French rugby, a sport played in an atmosphere not to be missed.

The legendary Toulouse team, Stade Toulousain, has enabled the city to acquire worldwide fame in sports. The greatest players in the world come to live in the pink city to practice this legendary game. Rugby arrived in the region in the 19th century, and was first played in the city's universities. The traditional team colours are red and black, in memory of the former capitouls, or sheriffs, who were municipal councillors. During your stay in Toulouse, and depending on the season, be sure to attend a match at the stadium and watch this legendary team play. Take advantage of the ‘third half' and head to the Haka-Corner, the new bar dedicated to rugby, opened by a former Stade Toulousain player. The atmosphere is enthusiastic and a convivial moment with the fans of this iconic sport is guaranteed.
