Volleyball Chaumont / Tours

Historic rivalry between the two clubs

Last season, at the end of the regular period in Ligue 1, Chaumont was fourth and Tours were fifth. The two teams thus face each other in the quarter-finals of the play-offs. French champions Haute Manet in 2017 then eliminated Touran in two matches (2-3, 3-0) before losing in the final to Cannes. High-level confrontations between the two teams are nothing new. Tours are even a black beast for Haute Marnais, who lost to Touran twice in the 2018 final, in the French Cup and French Championship play-offs, and then in the 2019 play-off final lost again.
