I remember they took a game or two there in 2006. My one and only Catalan away game was when they played in Naarbonne. I think it only drew 3,500 though. Mind you, that was the early days of the Dragons.
Think it drew more than that if I remember correctly.
Football's AC Arles-Avignon moved their home ground from Arles to the parc des sports in Avignon 5-6 years back and went up to Ligue 1 for a few seasons. They're currenly bottom of Ligue 2 and seemingly back into the anonymity they came from. Crowds around the 1400 mark, playing on Friday nights.
SO Avignon were leading 10-8 at half-time against Toulouse today, but 3 tries in the last 12 minutes gave a 10-28 final score.
So there is no top line sports team currently in Avignon, certainly an opportunity for SO Avignon to exploit this. Hopefully they can sort things out with the current off field moves they're making.
