A summer of Franco-German sport in 2024

— Posted on January 23, 2023


Less than two years from the Paris 2024 Games, but also from the Euro football championship, France and Germany are sealing their alliance on the sports field. A Franco-German Council of Ministers was held on Sunday January 22 on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Elysée Treaty. It was concluded by the will of the two Sports Ministers, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra for France, Nancy Faeser for Germany (photo above), to “work closely together over the next few years on the implementation” of several projects. The first is scheduled for 2024. The two countries want to take advantage of the Men’s Football Euro in Germany and the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris to imagine a “sports summer” highlighting « the expertise and capacity of the Franco-German couple to organize major responsible, inclusive sporting events, involving the local population and leaving a lasting legacy.” The second project looks more distant. The two ministers explain that they want to draw on the experiences of Euro 2024 and the 2024 Games to establish “common standards for the responsible organization of major sporting events, taking into account the requirements of energy sobriety and ecological transition, as well as the imperatives of human and social rights, with a view to achieving greater acceptability of major events athletes and a lasting legacy.”
