Historically, Brittany and Morbihan are a land of football and cycling. Today, rugby, marginal for a long time, is invited to the big table. In the shadow of the TGV that is the Vannes club, the Pays d’Auray Rugby-club (Parc) is emerging at the national level.

Sunday May 5, 2024, the Alréens receive the team from Aulnay-sous-Bois (Seine-Saint-Denis) in the return match of the 32are in the final of the Federal 3 championship. Narrowly beaten in the first leg (29-27), they have the means to reverse the trend. In case of qualification, they will play a 16e of finals by two-legged match.

“It’s a real event. If we pass, it opens the doors to a 16e and therefore the Federal 2 (fifth national level). It would be historic for the club, which has never reached such a level. rejoices President Olivier Boissou. Managers and players hope to see the crowd at the Loch stadium, where the Park has been undefeated since December 2021.

“All the lights are green”

“There is tremendous excitement around the match. Professional players from RC Vannes, where our coach Régis Loubéry spent a large part of his career, should do us the honor of coming to support us. Against our neighbor Grand-Champ, we had 1,200 spectators; we hope to do better. The only thing that could disrupt the party is the weather. And even ! » Two bell ringers will come, exceptionally, to bring a musical and Breton sound around the match.

The club’s partners, Cité Marine and Guéguin Picaud, will offer gifts as part of a raffle. Forty volunteers will be mobilized to welcome supporters. The president believes it: “We have a beautiful, young team, well prepared by Thomas Ducrot. All the lights are green. »
