The Armenian athletics team will take up residence at the CPJ Halle Diagana-Stade Balmont (Lyon 9th) from April 20 to 27. Finally, the Japanese artistic gymnastics team, reigning world team champion, will also be present in its entirety at the Vorontzov Gymnasium from July 15 to 19, and in smaller groups until July 27.

Discussions with other delegations

The City of Lyon continues to respond to requests for its CPJ-referenced equipment and to prospect in particular for the Mado Bonnet Gymnasium (Lyon 8th), capable of hosting a national basketball team and the Plaine des Jeux de Gerland (Lyon 7th) for rugby sevens. These pre-Olympic courses in the sports facilities made available by the City will allow foreign delegations to acclimatize and prepare as best they can for the Games.

After welcoming the last finalists of the 2023 Rugby World Cup, the renowned All Blacks, to base camp, we already have Taiwan, Armenia and Japan – nothing less than the reigning world team champions in gymnastics! – who chose our city for a preparation course. Exchanges are also continuing with other countries, qualifying tournaments have not yet taken place, I still hope that our City will be able to host a national basketball team. »
