Train station Furiani: Sports in Corsica

The Armand-Cesari stadium, known as the Furiani stadium (10 kms away from Bastia city centre), is the main stadium in Corsica. The SCB: Sporting Club of Bastia, which plays there, is anew one of the elite of the French football since 2011. The football, with its mythical club, is the most popular sport on the island and on match days, families like to meet and enjoy the match together. Unfortunately the Furiani stadium is also known for a tragedy that happened in 1992, when a temporary stand collapsed during a semi-finale of the French football cup. 18 people died and 2357 were injured. Since then, major works have been undertaken to renovate and extend the stadium. Less popular sports like basketball, volleyball, handball, jet-ski, cycling… are quite significant for local sportsmen. The most important event on the island in 2013 was the “Tour de France”. For its 100th edition, the Tour took place for the first time in Corsica!! Hence the slogan: “A notre Tour!” It’s our turn! Thanks to the Tour, the whole world discovered the wonderful landscapes of Corsica.
