La Rochelle Update - Posted 13/11/19
With our away game with La Rochelle fast approaching here is some last minute information for traveling supporters.
The General Humbert is our main supporters HQ with the following on offer -
They have had T shirts made for us. There are only 100 so if you would like a shirt, come and find Alexis who will be in Humberts from 6.30 on Friday night.
Discounts will be applied to certain drinks including Heineken, Gordons Gin and local white wine for members of the Exeter Chiefs Supporters Club upon production of a valid membership card.
The General Humbert's have arranged with the restaurant LA SOLETTE (10 meters from their pub) a 15€ SPECIAL CHIEFS MENU, lunch and dinner, for the weekend. Excellent and decent French food. Main course will be a beef and wine sauce stew..."
We have also selected Les Enfants du rock which is located on the Harbour in La Rochelle.
They have offered us discounts on selected food platters including their pub special platter which consists of spicy cod cakes, squid donut, salmon rillettes, pate, cheese and saucisson reduced from 17 euro to 14 euro.
Or you could choose their mixed platter including a bottle of selected local wine reduced from 35 euro to 30 euro
You can also receive discounts on Kronenburg and Guinness at Les Enfants du Rock but again these discounts will only apply to members of the Exeter Chiefs Supporters Club upon production of a valid membership card.
Also on Friday, the Exeter Foundation cyclists, who set off on Sunday, are due to arrive at the stadium around 4.30 on Friday and it would be good to get a good welcoming committee to chop them in. Keep an eye out through the social media platforms for updates on their progress and any changes to their Eta.
On Saturday, we have been invited to join some of the La Rochelle supporters for pre match drinks from 12.30 at Maison de Quartier de port-neuf, or Centre Social Jean-Benoit. This is located at the front of the stadium near the pharmacy and bakery.
It'll probably be from this location where we will do, what has become customary, our noisy entry to the stadium. Bring your flags and bring your voice boxes.
Safe travels and see you In La Rochelle
