In a year that France will host the Rugby World Cup, this new special exhibition documents the long and storied history of Les Bleus and the rise of French Rugby, including a look into the game's early Olympian, its Parisian origins and its spread into the rural heartlands of the South-West of the nation.
The exhibition also examines the turmoil of war and the innovations that lead the birth of international women's rugby. Showcasing the first French captain, the entertainers, and the successive golden ages of French rugby.
More than anything, the exhibition celebrates a game that has come to define French culture, where it is not enough to win, but to win with style is everything.
Discover how French rugby became the spectacle we know today, by booking to see Allez Les Bleus: The History of Rugby in France as part of a visit to the World Rugby Museum.
