Territory labeled Terre de Jeux 2024 through the organizing committee of the olympic and paralympic games, the city of Montpellier wants to pay attention to the accessibility of physical and sporting activities. In this process, it mobilizes alongside clubs to support them in their sporting project.

The Terre de Jeux 2024 label: sport changes lives!

The “Terre de Jeux 2024” label aims to unite a community of local actors who believe that sport changes lives. Within it, everyone will be able to enrich themselves with the experiences of the entire network, reveal the best of their territory and give visibility to the actions and projects of their community.

Since the registrations opened in June 2019, more than 2,800 communities and structures of the sports movement, such as regions, departments, intermunicipalities, cities, sports federations and even embassies, have been labeled across France. Label holders have privileged access to the tools, information and events of Paris 2024.

Finally, the label also means the opportunity to invest more by applying for Games Preparation Center status and perhaps welcoming a delegation of the National Olympic and Paralympic Committees who want to train in France before 2024.

So it renews its this year investment aid for sports associations up to the height of €500,000
