FC Barcelona and the LNR (French National Rugby League) have reached an agreement for the 2016 Top 14 final to be played at the Camp Nou on Friday June 24. This will be the first time ever that the Barça stadium has been used to host a sport different to football.
France is hosting the European Football Championship in the summer of 2016, meaning that all of the major sports stadiums in the country will be in use at the time of the rugby final. The LNR decided to look into alternative options, and decided that the Barça stadium would be the perfect solution.
