Racing 92’s Top 14 Rugby match moved to new venue

Stade De France will not be hosting Racing's Top14 Match

Racing 92’s Top 14 clash with Toulouse later this month has been switched from the Stade de France national stadium following last Friday’s Paris terror attacks.

“We’ve just been informed by the public authorities that the Racing 92 against Toulouse match will not take place at the Stade de France,” said a Racing statement.

The national stadium was one of the sites affected by the attacks as three suicide bombers detonated their bomb vests near the Stade de France, killing themselves as well as a bystander.

The worst hit area on was around the famous Place de la Republique, where most of the victims lost their lives in gun attacks.

In total, 129 people have died while hundreds more were injured, some critically.

France’s football team was playing Germany in an international friendly at the time of the attacks around the Stade de France.

The German team were so affected by the incident that they spent the night at the stadium rather than return to their hotel, where earlier in the day there had also been a bomb scare.

Racing’s clash with Toulouse will still take place on November 28 at 1345 GMT but the club has yet to announce an alternative venue, although it may be played at their regular Stade Yves-du-Manoir ground just outside Paris.
