Red and Black are the colors of the RCT. Their origin remains uncertain, probably borrowed from the Toulouse team, the Stade Toulousain.
When rugby reached the shores of the Mediterranean, clubs bloomed on the coast. In Toulon, the team was formed with soldiers from all over France, including Toulouse. In 1908, the Stade Toulousain sponsored the RCT, making it an official rugby team. From this relationship stemmed the colors of the RCT jersey but versions diverge. Some attribute it to a generous gesture of Toulouse that would have offered a set of jerseys; others see the willingness of Toulon to pay tribute to their sponsor. The fact remains however that these two great teams, both playing in red and black, are rivals and their matchups are major events in each sports season.
