Natixis, official sponsor of the Racing Metro 92 for the sixth consecutive season

August 18 will be the start of the French rugby championship for the Racing Metro 92.

The team which was quarter finalist last year intends to start the season with a bang. In their first game Saturday 18 at 6:30 p.m., the Sky Blue and Whites will meet Agen. They will then play a home game against the team from Toulon, France’s vice-champions.

The team is expecting a hotly contested tournament with several teams claiming the title. In preparation of the tournament, the team recently played two friendly games. The first one against Grenoble, a rookie in the Top 14, and the second one against Toulouse, the French champion. After winning over Grenoble, the Racingmen lost, 21-27, to Toulouse. Looking good for the game on Saturday.

Since 2007, Natixis has supported the Racing Metro 92 in its conquest of the Top 14 and the H-Cup. This year, during the European championship, the Racing will play against the Saracens, Munster and Edinburgh teams.

Two great games to look forward to.
