Mairie de Paris
Paris is a city open to the world, which has always embraced a culture of sharing and connection in order to better contribute to social and economic progress.
It is one of the most attractive places to share the values of sport and to host events offering athletes outstanding venues and ideal conditions for optimum performance.
To deliver a tailor-made experience for everyone, Paris offers an unmatched accommodation capacity and transport infrastructure, with 140,000 hotel rooms connected to the best public transport network in the world, as every location in Paris is within 400 m of a metro station.
With more than 55 World or European championships in Olympic and Paralympic disciplines hosted in France over the past decade, the city is a partner you can trust, offering local expertise and vast experience in delivering world-class events.
Paris has a proven track record of transforming major world competitions into successes: iconic backdrops, full stadia, strong partners, and amazing city wide celebrations. In addition to events hosted on a regular basis, such as Roland Garros and the final of the Tour de France, and after celebrating football Euro in 2016 and the Handball world championships in January 2017, the city is preparing to welcome Ice Hockey and Wrestling world championships in 2017, Golf's Ryder Cup in 2018…
Going beyond this enormous passion and emotion, Paris is committed to staging major events with a real purpose, building a positive future and leaving a sustainable legacy, in line with the historic Paris Agreement on climate.
