Coupe du monde Rugby France 2023 Bordeaux Métropole

The Rugby Village

Together to feel the thrill of the 2023 Rugby World Cup! 

Don’t miss the Rugby Village, set in the heart of the Parc des Sports Saint-Michel – definitely one of ‘the’ places to be! 

The Rugby Village is designed to seat 10,000 and is strategically located near the station and tram line C so that you can go straight from there to the Stade de Bordeaux.

The Bordeaux Rugby Village has put together one of the most ambitious selections of match broadcasts in France, showing 37 of the 48 matches that are scheduled to be played during this 10th edition of the Rugby World Cup. Follow all the matches that will be played in Bordeaux live, the fixtures that count, cheer on your team, and watch the quarter-finals, semi-finals and, of course, THE final!🏆

Learn all about the local traditions and values that make rugby the great sport that it is, come and meet fellow rugby-lovers and enjoy an unforgettable experience with the locals throughout the 19 days that it will be open, from 8 September to 28 October.

The Parc des Sports Saint-Michel will become one big match-viewing zone where fans can gather to share their emotions more intensely.

During the pool phases: open every weekend from 2 pm to midnight and from 6 pm to midnight for the French team’s matches.

During the final rounds, all of the quarter-finals, the semi-finals and the final: open 2 hours before the first match of the day and until midnight.

In addition to the audio-visual systems on site, there will be a complete range of catering facilities offering menus with local, seasonal and meat-free produce. You will also be able to enjoy soft drinks, beer, wine and cocktails in a resolutely festive atmosphere.

A presenter will announce the main events during the 19-day period: “intro to rugby” sessions at the weekend, pre-match programmes with professional players on stage, DJ sets with local associations, and many other surprises in store in the Bordeaux Rugby Village.
