The 2023 Rugby World Cup train stops in Clermont-Ferrand

It was unthinkable that the 2023 Rugby World Cup train would not pass through Clermont-Ferrand, rugby is such an integral part of Clermont life. For two days – this Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 November – the Clermont-Ferrand station will be shaking for what the world of ovals is looking forward to, the World Cup in France.

Connecting the public with rugby

This initiative launched by the French Rugby Federation in partnership with SNCF has already passed in 48 cities, as close as possible to clubs, fans and ordinary spectators. The purpose of this tour is to connect the general public with this extraordinary event. “Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a rugby player or not. We especially welcome schoolchildren,” explains Pierre Millet, director of the Saint-Étienne World Cup area.

Young or old, everyone will have the chance to immerse themselves in the Blues’ first game at the Stade de France, thanks to virtual reality. A unique experience that will give you chills. In machine 2, the World Cup project is presented, but also several initiatives, such as the clash of choirs that aim to teach school students the anthems of the nations involved in the tournament to sing them later in stadiums, or even XV of gastronomy.

Proof that the World Cup resonates all over the world, we also encountered a few Englishmen who no doubt came to take inspiration from the legendary French flair.
