FROM THE 1992 OLYMPICS TO THE 2017 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Albertville is nestled at the foot of the world’s largest skiing resorts. The city that hosted the 16th Winter Olympics in 1992 is beautiful all year round. Alpine lakes, panoramic landscapes, forests, mountains, valleys and passes make it a playground for hiking, walking or cycling enthusiasts. Albertville is a unique cycling destination; it hosts important stages of the Tour de France and in 2016 will again do so. Handball has also had a place in the heart of Albertville since it hosted the 2001 Championship in the Olympic venue.
Built for the 1992 Olympics, the sports hall venue had a record attendance for the quarter-final France- Germany (5,700 spectators). Completely renovated between 2013 and 2015, the Olympic sport venue, which celebrates its 25 birthday, is set to host a new World Championship, and why not set a new record?
