The 2005–06 Top 14 was a French domestic rugby union club competition that ran from August 2005 to June 2006.

The 2005–06 season saw attendance records broken. 79,502 spectators attended the Round 9 clash between Stade Français and Stade Toulousain at the Stade de France, shattering the attendance record for any regular league season game in France (not just rugby union).[1] However, that record was short-lived when 79,604 spectators attended the Round 17 match between Stade Français and Biarritz Olympique.[2] The regular season finished in late May 2006, with Biarritz finishing at the top of the ladder. The semi-finals and final were contested in June, with Biarritz defeating Toulouse to claim back-to-back titles, and their fifth overall.
