Rugby matchs de Pro D2

Players & crowd during de pro rugby match near Originals Hotels

In Auvergne, it’s well known that rugby is the king’s sport. 

And while ASM Clermont Auvergne often takes centre stage, Stade Aurillacois Cantal Auvergne also thrills its supporters, especially since 2007 and its ascent to Pro D2, the final hurdle before the Top 14 elite French rugby championship.

Founded in 1904, the team was once made up of soldiers but many players did not survive the battles of the First World War. So wasn’t until the end of the war that the club began to ascend the regional championship tiers. 

After several years in the first division, the Aurillac club finally managed to reach the second division of the French rugby championship in 2007. 

If you’re a fan of oval balls, make the most of your stay at The Originals Boutique, Grand Hôtel Saint-Pierre Aurillac and experience the unique atmosphere of Jean-Alric stadium!
