After launching a solidarity kitty, like Toulouse, Lyon and La Rochelle, the Stade Français also announced that the employees with the highest incomes would come to help those with the lowest incomes. The club has placed nearly 120 workers on short-term work since March 16 due to the coronavirus epidemic. Thus, Thomas Lombard, general manager of the Stade Français, suggested that the fifty players and staff members feed a kitty for the benefit of employees in the administrative sector and others. “Rugby is a sport of mutual aid and altruism, I know that the club’s collaborators and players will be sensitive to this initiative which will strengthen internally the ties which make the strength of a club like ours, which has always been a different club, attached to the family and to those who wear our pink jersey. We are proud of who we are and the energies we mobilize on a daily basis, ”said Thomas Lombard in a press release.
