100th anniversary USC: sport at the top!

The USC’s centenary was postponed for many anniversaries because you know who. Well, maybe it was a backup to jump better, because the program of omnisports festivities, curated by the municipality and the USC, promises to be purely exceptional for three days, from June 24 to 26.

All facets of sport in Charit

“The idea of ​​this large-scale celebration is twofold: to show the importance of the sporting phenomenon in La Charité and to share it with the general public, by involving the Charitoise population in the events that mark the city,” explains Mayor Henri Vales out.

“USC is something! “, the late Eugène Roger is said to have claimed, the soul of the former Echo Charitois, who in his early childhood did not disdain to use the paddle in the Loire and supported the exploits of the Charitois athletes with big hits of film and daring characters.

“During these three days, we will show all facets of Charitois sport, an integral part of municipal politics. A festive program that focuses mainly on sports at school, clubs, licensees, facilities, sports and the Loire…”, the mayor emphasizes.
