A little help from Marseille

Postby le marseillais » April 6th, 2015, 11:55 am

Hi all,
I live in Marseille, I am a rugby fan, but don't worry, I am not for Toulon.
I support Clermont, and we have been so warmly welcome everytime we've been to Dublin (RDS, Aviva ...) that I suggest to give you some help about Marseille if you need.
Ask me what you want about the stadium, the city, traffic and so on...
Sorry for my English,
J just hope to see you in Twick at the end of the month against ASM Clermont Auvergne...
Come on Leinster !

I posted this on another thread but a lot of people are on the 20:30 flight out of Marseille.

What is the best option after the game to get to the airport?

We are are coming in at 9:30am or so in the morning. Where would be the best place to go before the game?

To go to the airport, I think the best solution is to take the shuttle from the main train station, called "Saint Charles".
It is a bus.
There is an underground station at St Charles station, easy from the stadium.

Before the game: as you may konw, Marseille is not a rugby city, but a football city.
So I'm afraid there is no real place for rugby fans.
RCT may organize an event, we don't konw yet.
I will tell you in case. Sometimes, there is a fan zone on the beach.
In my opinion, the best thing is to stay in city center, near the arbour that we call "vieux port" (old Harbour).

Thanks for that.

I think every Leinster fan would love to see Clermont winning the cup if it was not themselves. Best of luck in the semi final against the team everyone loves to hate Saracens.

Thank you, that's very nice.
But from somebody called "blueyellow", it is not a surprise...
And I know that many leinsterfans think like you.
