The Rugby World Cup has begun! In Montpellier, many bars will be showing the matches. We have prepared a small list of places worth visiting, but it is impossible to be comprehensive. Enjoy the games!
Do you want to enjoy the World Cup matches in a lively bar or venue in Montpellier and its surroundings, starting with the opening match this Friday, September 6th, at 9:15 PM (broadcasted on TF1), France-New Zealand?
No problem, you will find what you’re looking for. The managers who were already here in 2007, during the previous World Cup in France, fondly remember the atmosphere on their terrace and the endless rounds of drinks. So this time, even though there are no matches at La Mosson, and therefore very few foreign supporters, the bars will quickly get into the spirit.
Il y a les incontournables des places Saint-Côme, Jean-Jaurès et Castellane. La Comédie aussi se prêtera au jeu avec, en plus des écrans habituels, les Trois-Grâces et Piazza Papa qui feront écrans et terrasses communes. À deux pas, rue d’Obilion, la Chistera ne manquera pas l’événement.
Un peu plus loin
For those who enjoy the attractions of Place des Beaux-Arts, the Picamoles family will welcome you appropriately. At Prés-d’Arènes, Le Réservoir (Montels Saint-Pierre street) is also getting involved. Just like Lepic brewery (Lepic avenue). Lez Market plans to have accessible screens on all its sites: indoors, terraces, and rooftop. In Jacou, Halles 610 will also join the celebration. It’s also worth noting that there will be a giant screen in the Carrières de Beaulieu theater. In short, you will find what you’re looking for.
Le GGL Stadium, l’épicentre
But the epicenter of the World Cup in Montpellier remains the home of MHR: the GGL stadium, where the brewery and the square will come alive with the rhythm of the competition. On the agenda for Friday night at what will be called the Mondial Bodega during the event: petanque, drinks, food, makeup, MHR and XV de France merchandise… There will also be a prediction contest that will allow participants to win tickets for certain World Cup matches.
