Mayol stadium, a rugby legend

All Toulon follows the RCT, the Rugby Club Toulonnais, one of the biggest rugby clubs in France.

Toulon is a great rugby town, and the heart of the city beats to the rhythm of Rugby Club Toulonnais games. Everything happens at Stade Mayol in the old port district.

The stadium is named after an early 20th-century singer, Félix Mayol, a great patron of the club, who signed over his song royalties to help finance the facilities. Inaugurated in March 1920, the stadium, which today seats up to 17,287 spectators, is one of the greatest rugby stadiums in France.

Four times winner of the French championship and three times winner of the European Cup, RCT counts some of the best rugby players in the world. Whatever their level of fame, they are all overwhelmed "getting off the bus", that moment when players walk among supporters for a good 50 metres between the bus and the locker room.

The stadium regularly hosts international matches with touring sides from New Zealand, South Africa, and Australia, and the RCT counts among its players some of the best in the world.
