Business Club

Business Club has five branches: Paris, Antibes, Monaco and Dubai. Each of these clubs has an average of 50 to 100 members. Our members vary from government officials to bankers and property developers. Each of our Business club branches have access to our private boxes situated at the south end of the stadium. After the match all NRBC members are encouraged to mingle with other branch members in the club members bar area.

Each branch will have access to other branch activities e.g Race Day , Golf challenge and International rugby fixtures.

With the support of the newly elected council, the Stade des Arboras is being completely transformed. The construction of hospitality boxes and a new VIP bar area will allow the Members of the NRBC to be received in a fashion which is appropriate to the ambition of the rugby club.
