It is not yet known if the public will be allowed to come, if there will be a maximum gauge or even if the event will be maintained because of the health crisis.
In the meantime, the National Rugby League (LNR) has taken the lead.
The body announced this Thursday that the semi-finals of the Top 14, the French rugby championship, will take place at the Pierre Mauroy stadium on June 18 and 19, 2021.
