The MHR offered its supporters travel packs for this semi-final against UBB. These are so seven buses who left this morning at 9 a.m. from the GGL Stadium heading for the Côte d’Azur.

Their arrival is scheduled around 3 p.m. on the Promenade des Anglais, where a “Top 14 village” with different activities planned. For those who are not lucky enough to be present at the Allianz Riviera, it will be possible to follow the match at the Brasserie Le M by MHR, at the GGL Stadium.

Castres first qualified for the final

This Friday, June 17, the first semi-final was played at the Allianz Riviera in Nice. Leader at the end of the regular season, Castres got the better of Toulouse, the defending champion, after a close match (24-18). If successful tonight, the MHR would therefore find its Occitan neighbor for a remake of the 2018 final, won by the Tarnais with a score of 29-13.

The MHR, 2nd in the regular phase

A leading time in the championship before experiencing a slump as the final sprint approached, Montpellier fought back to finally validate direct qualification for the semi-finals, a first since 2018 (defeat in the final against Castres).

The Cists find Bordeaux-Bègles today in this last four. The men of Christophe Urios, third in the regular phase, brilliantly dismissed Racing 92 in the play-off on Sunday June 12.

A first in Nice

For the first time in its history, the Top 14 is organizing its semi-finals in Nice. It is the Allianz Riviera, a modern 35,000-seat stadium usually occupied by Ligue 1 club OGC Nice, which hosts the four best teams of the season.

Montpellier – Bordeaux-Bègles in brief

  • Ranking at the end of the regular phase: Montpellier 2nd / Bordeaux-Bègles 3rd.
  • Direct confrontations this season: UBB 27 – 23 MHR (9 October 2021) and MHR 22 – 23 UBB (24 April).
  • Best result in Top 14: MHR finalist in 2011 and 2018 / UBB (after merger) twice semi-finalist in 2021 and 2022.
