Stade Félix Mayol (Toulon v Leinster, 6 April)
1. A native of Toulon, Félix Mayol was a singer and music hall impressario who made his name in Paris after the First World War. A lover of rugby, Mayol financed the construction of the venue which was opened in 1920.
2. The stadium was built at the foot of Mont Faron and overlooks Toulon's military harbour, La Rade, on the Mediterranean coast.
3. Stade Mayol is famous for Toulon's iconic pre-match chant called Pilou pilou. Created in the late 1940s by one of the club's players, Marcel Bodrero, the blood-curdling Pilou pilou describes the Toulon players as fearsome warriors coming down from the mountains to the sea.
Words of the Pilou Pilou (translated from French)
Ah! We are the ruthless Pilou-Pilou warriors
Coming down from the mountain to the sea
With our dishevelled women breastfeeding our children
Under the shade of the great white coconut trees
We the ruthless warriors sing our ruthless war cry
I said OUR RUTHLESS WAR CRY!
4. The ground, which is situated in the heart of Toulon, was upgraded both during the 1980s and the mid-noughties and now has a capacity of just over 15,000.
5. Some of the game's most famous players have graced the stadium in Toulon's colours, such as: Roland Bertranne, Christian Califano, Christian Carrere, Eric Champ, Felipe Contepomi, Christophe Dominici, Jerome Gallion, George Gregan, Bryan Habana, André Herrero, Jo Maso, Victor Matfield, Andrew Mehrtens, Philippe Saint André, George Smith, Sonny Bill Williams.
6. Toulon players entering Stade Mayol on match day are given a unique welcome as they walk through a sea of thousands of adoring fans.
7. What's Black and White and Red all over? To celebrate victory or outstanding performances by their players, Toulon supporters tear up newspapers and throw them in the air to show their appreciation.
8. Toulon are relatively new to the Heineken Cup having played just 22 games in Europe's premier club tournament and to date, have never been beaten at fortress Felix Mayol.
9. Rugby is at the very heart of Toulon and unlike most French cities there is no football club currently playing in the top flight leagues in the area. The women's Olympic Handball team is arguably the next most successful sport in the area as they play in the top division of the French league.
10. Smash Sandwich: When you think of some of the big hits put in at Stade Mayol over the years, it's fitting that one of the local street food offerings is called a Smash Sandwich. Give it a try.
