Rugby with the 23rd day of TOP 14 this Saturday in Auxerre (Yonne). This is a sentence that the Icaunais are not used to reading. Exceptionally, the meeting between Racing 92 and Aviron Bayonnais is relocated at the Abbé Deschamps stadium. A decision which allows Camille Chat’s family to see the Ile-de-France player playing on his land!

Immense pride in Yonne

In the house of Fabrice Chat, Camille’s dad, it’s the coming and going of friends and family for a few days. They all come to collect tickets to see the local child play at Abbé Deschamps. “Everyone wants places, fortunately we had some facilities thanks to Racing for once Camille plays here. But now we have to distribute them,” says the father between two phone calls.

Around the table, Laurent, a member of the family by marriage, could not miss this meeting. With his two boys, the father also plays rugby. So, obviously, Camille Chat’s career impresses. “I knew him when he was small and turbulent. He had a lot of energy to expend. It’s true that when you see everything he achieved, it’s a Source of great pride. And to be able to follow him Abbé Deschamps, it’s huge.”

A feeling of pride shared by Fabrice Chat, very close to his son. Very proud that the meeting is taking place in Auxerre. For once, it’s in the area, everyone will be able to come, family and friends, will be there. Plus, playing in the AJA stadium is still legendary,” explains Camille’s father. “We’re not in a rugby land. It’s more about football here so it’s going to change and it’s exceptional. And then I hope that it will make local people want to be a little more interested to this very noble sport, where there is real respect for refereeing, where there is no risk in the stands.”

“It will help develop rugby in Yonne and Burgundy. And that too is close to my heart”insists Camille Chat. “I am very proud to represent Racing in my native region. I will be keen to have a good match and to represent my club, my family, my friends and my country, in quotes. And that is also where I I grew up going to see matches at Abbé Deschamps when I was little. It’s a huge Source of pride for me.”
