Montpellier Pre-Season matches?

We are going to be staying in Narbonne for two weeks in July, and are considering maybe seeing a Montpellier Herault friendly match if they may be on. I've searched but for the life of me I can't find any fixtures yet. Does anyone know where I could find out about any matches, how much they might cost, where I could buy tickets for them?

Any help would be appreciated?

Hi,

Congratulations on staying in Narbonne...very nice place and lots to do nearby. And the reason you didn't find anything is because the Ligue 1 (of which MHSC is a member) doesn't have a scehdule up...well, they do, but it's a report of who went where last year.

Nothing on the club site. Here's the link to their facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/MHSC

The main club page is www.mhscfoot.com/le-club/infos-generales

There's an email address, you could try writing for info...

Here's the link for tickets: http://www.mhscfoot.com/view_billetterie

If you can find a copy get the Rough Guide to Languedoc-Roussillon...I took vacations in the area for ten years and it's the best overall guide I know of. www.creme-de-languedoc.com is a good site with sections on all sorts of things.

Here's the official tourist website--there are so many (when you do a search) and some are worthless..this is the real deal and if you can't find the info elsewhere, try them:

http://www.ot-montpellier.fr/en/

At the very bottom of the page is a small listing Downloadable Documents. It includes one with info on events during the year.

And if you haven't been in the south of France (or read about it) before, the 14th of July is a huge fireworks show from the Cite in Carcassonne. Various videos on youtube will give you the idea..

Also check out www.audeflyer.com for a great little biweekly newsletter from an expat in the Aude--but it has info on more than just that. Friendly useful paper. I get it by email and it's always a welcome sight in the inbox.

Hope this helps a little.

Many top level French clubs play pre-season matches out of town on the grounds of local non-league clubs. I have watched Bordeaux play in such places. I find that details are normally confirmed about a month beforehand when tickets go on sale.

Last year Montpellier played one game in Kansas City and another in Barcelona as well as locally.
