Albi itself has a good rugby team and has decent attendances at its matches. The stadium is easy to get too; only about half an hour from the house.
Carmaux has a rugby team – not at the same level as Albi but fun town level rugby.
For the big games it is worth a trip to Toulouse. The atmosphere is great – especially at the clash with old rivals Clement-Ferrand. Please note: be in good voice: the Toulouse anthem sung at the commencement of the home matches is 4 verses long! We have travelled by train from Carmaux.
