FRANCE EXPECTED WITH PASSION
With over 100 parks and gardens, 10,000 trees and the banks of both the Loire and the Erdre managed in an environmentally friendly way, the importance of nature is present in Nantes. It even inspired the designers of the city’s Hall XXL, built with sustainability in mind, within the exhibition Centre. It is the first site of its kind to receive ISO 14001 environmental certification.
This unusual venue will host four of the French team’s first five round matches. The blue, white, and red fever, as well as the bond between the fans and the French national team each time it plays in Nantes will grow even stronger for the World Championship. Handball fans from the Loire region, already spoiled with great performances from the local men’s team, are excited to see all of the visiting champions. That’s what makes it the perfect city for international handball.
