Volleyball: Regional derby between Derby and Narbonne for podium

On Friday 18 February (7.30pm), Audois, the presumed title candidate, will visit Héraultais, a surprise for the season.

Occitania offers no less than 6 derbies in Ligue A every year. If sports interests are bound to change, the 2021-2022 fiscal year has been one of the greatest regional years in a long time.

Behind Tour, who was unmatched in the regular season, was actually pointing to Montpellier (43 points), followed by Arago de Sète and Narbonne (43 points).
