HOW DOES MY SPIRAL PASS WORK?

Your pre-paid £50 is added to your account once a deposit is made against your selected booking. The £50 bonus credit is taken off your final balance total with the £5pp charity donation made on your behalf 12 weeks prior to travel to one of our selected beneficiaries.

ONE £50 Spiral Pass purchase entitles ONE person to buy a package with MSG. By way of example, a travelling couple would require 2 x SPIRAL PASS purchases.

L'apero

L’apéro is the part of the day when the French convene for a drink, often over small plates of food.  We’re adopting this maxim to deliver your pre-game entertainment in true MSG style.  

Before each matchday we’ll gather our fans in an exciting and innovative venue to enjoy each other’s company: included as standard in YOUR package.

Paris

Arguably the world’s most picturesque city, the French capital oozes class and culture around each of its twenty arrondissements. 

A short distance from the centre of Paris lies the energetic district of Saint-Denis.  Here, you’ll find the Basilica of Saint-Denis, Street Art Avenue and the Cité du Cinéma, a film studio complex and celebration of the art of cinema. 

As the venue for the opening match and RWC 2023 Final, Saint-Denis is also home to the country’s largest sporting venue, the Stade de France, host to the 1998 FIFA World Cup, 2003 IAAF World Championships, Rugby World Cup 2007 and UEFA Euro 2016. 

LYON

The history of Lyon, the capital of Roman Gaul, reads like a Who’s Who of French cultural pioneers, including the Lumière brothers (the godfathers of cinema) to Paul Bocuse, a three-star Michelin chef.

Situated within the regions of Beaujolais and Côtes-du-Rhône, Lyon is famous for wine but also has a rich food tradition. No visit to Lyon would be complete without a visit to one of the ‘bouchons’, traditional restaurants unique to Lyon serving the local specialties and found in the alleyways of the Old Town, the Terreaux district, Rue Mercière and Rue des Marronniers.

Rugby World Cup 2023 will welcome players and fans to the OL Stadium, the third largest in France. After hosting RWC 2007 and the European Challenge Cup final in 2016, Lyon is the all-round ultimate fan experience.
