Midi-Olympique, leader of the French rugby press worked with the Matmut, the French insurer, to create the original challenge Matmut #DéfiRugby.

This competition aims at promoting outstanding actions of French players and clubs, both on and off the field. These actions have to be related to the rugby and Matmut values: Generosity, Solidarity, Tolerance and Caring.

Actions have been highlighted by the Midi-Olympique during all the season. At the end, 3 final prizes have been awarded:

  • The 2017-2018 fair-play act trophy, to Pierre Brousset (a referee who changed his own decision)
  • The 2017-2018 supportive action trophy, to the l’AS Beziers Hérault (for players engagement in the decontamination of the Orb)
  • The 2017-2018 honor trophy, to Frédérik Michalak (for his whole career)

The ceremony happened last Saturday at the Matmut stadium at the LOU club in Lyon. Artempo is proud of having made these 3 wooden awards, and congratulate all participants and winners. A wonderful initiative for the rugby world that will be perpetuated for this 2018-2019 season!
