In Nice, rugby fans will be able to console themselves. The Covid-19 pandemic had indeed prevented them from seeing the game this year. The city was to host the semi-finals of the French championship on June 19 and 20, 2020 but the coronavirus had put an end to the Top 14 season. To compensate, the National Rugby League announced on Monday that the semi-finals of the season 2021-2022 will take place in Nice.

Regarding the semi-finals of the TOP 14 2020-2021, discussions are currently underway with potential candidates and the Steering Committee will rule in September 2020 among the proposals presented. 4/14
