Summer in the South of France and rugby as well? Go on then!

Giants’ next away day is in Perpignan against Catalans Dragons, with one win already under our belt in the cup, we should have a bit of confidence going into the game.

Perpignan, is a grand city, capital of French Catalonia and formerly capital of the Kingdom of Majorca and in the summer is a fantastic place to visits

Most fans will have made plans already but we’ll just concentrate on the game and on the day stuff.

Our media guy, Lee will be highlighting the fun stuff to do on his travels, so look our for him and follow everything on our social media channels.

THE LOWDOWN: Kick off at Stade Gilbert Brutus in Perpignan is 6.30pm (local time), that’s 5.30pm UK time and will be shown live on Sky Sports Action and Super League + platform.


TICKETS: Tickets direct from the Giants go off sale on Wednesday but there are tickets available from Catalans ticket site here  there are also ticket booths at Stade Gilbert Brutus.

Giants fans usually converge in the Puig-Aubert stand (blocks 7-8) which is behind the posts, but towards the corner but you get a really good view of the action


Perpignan is a fabulous city to visit, even if you’re staying in one of the Spanish Costas, try and visit some of the old centre of Perpignan around the Place De Republique and St Jean basilica/cathedral (from Le Castillet, head straight down the busy street and turn left at the crossroads onto Rue Saint-Jean,  carry straight on and then left (then right) or right (then left) for Place de Republique, this is where you’ll find Bar & Britz, one of the favourite bars of the Perpignan regulars.

BE AWARE- Buying food and drink at the ground isn’t as simple as you think, there is a token system at play here, so just a heads up.
