On the weekend of 9 and 10 June 2023, San Sebastian will host the semi-finals of the French Rugby League TOP 14. The four best French professional rugby union clubs will meet at the Real Arena to compete for the title of French champion in 2023. The whole city will vibrate to the rhythm of the TOP 14. On the programme, two days of oval festivities in a warm and very friendly atmosphere.
The TOP14 is the showcase of French rugby, and for our French friends, the best championship in the world!
We meet there the best French players, of course, but also some international stars from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa or England... An unmissable appetizer before the next World Cup which will take place this autumn in France.
The TOP14 in San Sebastian? In football land, of course, but in a country so close, with such a unique sense of hospitality and celebration, that this weekend of 9 and 10 June will certainly remain in the memories of all aficionados.
A mythical and historic stadium, the Real Arena, where Real Sociedad de San Sebastian usually plays. And a city in celebration for these two days of games, with a dedicated village and a city centre in the colours of the TOP14: what a programme, Donostia and its tapas bars available for all fans!
Toulouse, currently leading the championship, an insatiable competitor despite having one of the best records in French rugby, is certainly already looking forward to it. La Rochelle, the reigning European champions, also want to be there. Bordeaux is only two hours away, and the Parisian Stade Français is only four hours away by TGV... And what if the Avants Bayonnais, newly promoted to the elite, join the party? It's too early to say who will be there for sure, but the weekend will be festive and Rugby will be the winner.
For the fans, a must-see, and for the others, to be experienced at least once!
