The atmosphere will be phenomenal

“The Men’s World championship in France will be a great sharing experience. I want to say to French people: come to support our wonderful French team, and, as we are very generous people, open the door to the other nations, scream, show-off your flags, make it a big party !” Ambassador of the Men’s World championship, the actress Claudia Tagbo pitches the atmosphere: the show won’t be only on the court, it will also be in the stands with a lot of animations to create a unique experience for fans coming from all over the world. The Ambassador is willing to be part of this unique experience, just like the mascots Rok and Koolette who will be on the courtside to raise the temperature.

FEDER will make you dance to Lordly

French DJ FEDER revealed by the end of August the official soundtrack to the World championship 2017, Lordly, a musical catchy theme that will be played in all the arenas of the competition. FEDER also has surprises for the opening ceremony before the France vs Brazil game on January 11th…

Modern and comfortable arenas

Today, France has modern arenas allowing the audience an easy access and a maximum comfort. Albertville Olympic Hall, Nantes XXL Hall and Paris AcchorHotels Arena have been fully renovated these past years, Montpellier’s Arena, Rouen’s Kindarena and Brest’s Arena were inaugurated between 2010 and 2014, and let’s not forget about Metz’s Arenes and the Pierre-Mauroy Stadium in L.ille that should help break the affluence record in a Men’s World championship indoor game (27,500)… Tickets will be available for every game, including the final, at all price levels.

The French team dreams of sixth gold medal

Five times World Champion (including three titles in the last four editions), the French national team has the highest number of victories in the competition. Sixteen years after a first win at home, Claude Onesta’s men will try to conquer a sixth World Champions title. The players are more motivated than ever: first because they want to give the greatest exit to their idols who will probably be participating to their last international competition as members of the French team (Thierry Omeyer, Daniel Narcisse and the head coach Claude Onesta). Second, because they want to transform their Olympic silver medal in a gold medal in Paris and be back to where they were before going to Rio, at the top. The “Experts” will be in Paris (opening game), Nantes (first round), Lille (eight and quarter finals if qualified) before going back to Paris (semi-finals and final if qualified). Hurry up and get your tickets if you want to share the experience with them!
