This Saturday, Antoine Dupont will play the final of the Champions Cup, against Leinster, at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. For the rest of the season, between his club and the French 7s team which will participate in the Paris 2024 Olympics, the question was whether the Toulouse scrum half would, once again, leave the Rouge et Noir to participate at the Madrid stage of the world 7s circuit which takes place from May 31 to June 2. According to our information, Antoine Dupont will participate in the Madrid stage with the French septists.

Jérôme Daret, the coach of “France 7”, confirmed this to Le Figaro this Tuesday. “It’s planned for him to be with us. This has already been said (between the staff of the two teams),” he explains. An agreement between the two parties was more easily reached due to the fact that Toulouse is already qualified for the semi-finals of the Top 14 two days before the end of the regular season. After its Champions Cup final, Stade Toulousain, currently at the top of the Top 14, will face Stade Rochelais on June 2, on the penultimate day. Before traveling to Lyon on June 8 for the 26th day.

Head of French rugby, Antoine Dupont participated – successfully – in two stages of the world rugby sevens circuit, in Vancouver (bronze) and Los Angeles (gold). He will therefore participate in a third, in Madrid, an additional step in his rise to power in view of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
