France-Japan at the Stadium: here are all the activities presented on the sidelines of the match in Toulouse
By Lucie Fraisse
It’s the sporting meeting of the weekend at Toulouse. Sunday, November 20, 2022, at 2 p.m., theFrance rugby team will face their Japanese counterparts in a match that will take place at the Stadium in Toulouse.
Real work on the sides of the match
A match that takes place as part of the Blues’ autumn tour, just under a year from the next Rugby World Cup which, let’s remember, will be held in France, with several matches in Toulouse.
A few months before this deadline, and while the Blues are among the favorite teams for this international competition, the French Rugby Federation is doing a lot of work on the sidelines of the matches. Thereby, in the game against South Africa which took place in Marseille on Saturday November 12, 2022, the spectators of the meeting were able to attend a real show with games of light, fireworks and music at all costs.
With these animations, the The FFR wants to mobilize behind the Blues. But also to offer a real experience to rugby fans. This will also be the case this Sunday, November 20, 2022, on the sidelines of the France-Japan meeting.
From 11:30 a.m., entertainment will be offered in partnership with France Rugby, Toulouse Métropole and Toulouse City Hall, inside the Stadium.
Augmented reality gamers
On the program: mirror of the XV of France with the players in augmented reality, but also photobooth, make-up stand, games around the oval ball, etc.
For their entry into the field, the teams of France and Japan will be accompanied by thirty young flag bearers from the rugby schools of the Occitania League.
The kick off will be given by Sandra ForgueOlympic and world canoe-kayak champion.
A show inspired by martial arts
The show will continue at halftime of the match, with a show inspired by martial arts with the Japanese dancer Katsumi Sakakura and the Orientharythm collective.
With this match at the Stadium, the Japanese players will engage with the Pink City. It is in fact in Toulouse that the Japanese team will set up its base camp during the next World Cup. The Brave Blossoms will arrive on September 2, 2023 and will stay for 4.5 weeks. They will play two games at the Stadium: against Chile on September 10 and against Samoa on September 28, 2023.
