Located in the heart of Toulon, the Stade Mayol is home to the city’s Top 14 Rugby Union club – Rugby Club Toulonnais (RC Toulon). First opened in 1920, the stadium was named (and paid for) by famed concert hall singer Félix Mayol.
After much renovation over the years, including due to a severe storm in 1930 and being bombed in 1943 during the Second World War, the stadium has a current capacity of 18,200.
