Saint-Tropez can be proud of it’s international reputation that feeds on its rich past and its important cultural and natural heritage. However, it is up to us to constantly renew our touristic offer and provide quality events to our visitors and residents.
The sporting influence of our city is a major challenge for our term of office and we have chosen to impulse new dynamics with, among other things, the creation of new high-level events, such as the “Open de Saint- Tropez”, the “Masters de pétanque” or even the very spectacular “SailGP”. These new meetings now allow us to place Saint-Tropez on the map of international sporting events.
It is this ambition that led us with my dynamic sports deputy, Christophe COUTAL, to apply to host the 2023 edition of the Football World Cup for Lawyers in Saint-Tropez, from June 6 to 11.
This competition will bring together in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez more than 1,200 passionate athletes, from 60 bars around the world, and I would like to thank the organizers very warmly, as well as the neighboring municipalities who have agreed to accompany us in this adventure.
I wish all the teams a warm welcome to Saint-Tropez and a great competition.
Mayor of Saint-Tropez
With a Nautical Society more than a century old, Saint-Tropez is undoubtedly a mecca for water sports. However, it is not only on the water that the sportiness of our city is expressed.
Saint-Tropez has indeed seen the growth of great champions: Marcel AUBOUR, goalkeeper of the French football team, the TRINQUET sisters, Olympic medalists in fencing, or even Isabelle DEMONGEOT who was number two in French tennis in the 80s. to name just a few eminent figures among a very large number of Saint-Tropez champions, all having in common the love of their sport and Saint-Tropez at their heart.
Saint-Tropez is a sport-oriented city. In addition to the disciplines offered by our 17 UST and 23 associations, the municipality strives to develop a rich range of activities for children, as well as for adults. This dynamic goes hand in hand with the improvement of our sports structures, as it was the case previously with the development of the new Marcel Aubour stadium.
We are proud and happy that this completely renovated facility can host the final of the Lawyers’ Football World Cup.
Good competition to you all ! Long live football!
Sport deputy of Saint-Tropez
