Presentation of the French Rugby Sevens Champion Trophy

On Friday 23rd December, H.S.H. Prince Albert II received the Monaco Rugby Sevens at the Palace for the official presentation of the French Rugby Sevens Champion Trophy.

The Monegasque club won its first Champions of France title last month by defeating Pau in the final of the InExtenso SuperSevens. This victory rewards an exemplary record over the last two seasons, as the team coached by Jérémy Aicardi has played in seven finals during the eight tournaments organised in the French professional SuperSevens championship.

Led by their captain Johan Demai-Hamecher, who was voted best player of the competition, President Emmanuel Falco’s men presented the Sovereign Prince with the trophy in the Cour d’honneur of the Palace.

In the presence of numerous local authorities, including H.E. the Minister of State, and Frédéric Michalak, the club’s general secretary, the players and staff then presented a shirt with autographs to the Prince of Monaco.

But Michel Boéri is also known in his capacity as President of the Automobile Club de Monaco, a position he has held since 1972 and which has led him to exercise very high responsibilities in the world of motor sport.
