Lightroom Classic: How can I share collection set?

I have a collection set with 27 collections I need to share. How can I share this with a client without losing the "folder structure" and without sharing 27 different albums?

I'm not clear.  Do you want to maintain the collection set structure or the folder structure (these are not necessarily the same)?

By "share" what do you mean?  Post on your website?  Post on social media (which)?  Send as email?  Create folder structure on shared disk drive?

Collection set structure, because I know LR doesn't share folders.

Share ... using the web interface. Until now, I only found how to share one collection at the time. Either I share one collection with all the pictures, but then I loose the structure, either I share the 27 collections in 27 links. Not very handy :/

There is a very simple and user friendly solution. Subscribe to Smug Mug, Download the Lightroom-SmugMug plugin, and you will have infinite options, including sending a link to your client for them to view the folder and the collections(Galleries in SmugMug). Uploading from Lightroom is one click for each Gallery

You could also do a free (if you have the Photo Plan) Adobe My Portfolio website, add all the collections to the webpage, (which RETAINS a custom order). Then, under Settings/Lightbox for Images, click "Enable lightbox for images on my pages". Then they can see each image the full size of the window. They can also "favorite" shots to choose them. Cheaper than SmugMug!

I'm really surprised. Is there really a chance to see this implemented, despite Adobe's decision do ditch sync on Classic ?

Now LR mobile has "folders" and LR classic has “collection sets" what basically the same. The ability to sync them would be really great and will make the working with big images database (150 000+ images) much simplier.

Indeed, but:
1) Adobe has decided to stop sync updates to classic
2) Collections can be smart which might cause troubles in certain specific cases (infinite loops, ...)
3) "Feedback and feature requests? Let's implement tutorials no one asked for"

I have't seen this info.  Can you provide URL or other reference that supports this statement?

Classic still syncs fine, @Antoine, where are you getting this info?
