The budget, approved by 77.2% of those voting at a virtual general assembly, forecasts €120.7 million of revenues against €126.4 million in outgoings, including €21 million of the €35 million destined for the rugby aid package announced by FFR president Bernard Laporte.

The remaining amount of the package would come out of the 2019/20 budget.

The 2019/20 rugby union season in France was halted in March and declared over in June because of the Covid19 outbreak.
