The city of Nice, France, is getting ready to welcome over 3,000 participants from 77 member states and governments of La Francophonie for the VII Games of La Francophonie to be held September 7-15, 2013. Its bid was selected in 2009 by the member states and governments of la Francophonie.
Nice, the fifth largest city in France, is located on the Mediterranean, between sea and mountains, about thirty kilometers from the Italian border. The city already has the cultural and sporting infrastructures required to host such a competition as the Games of La Francophonie. Events will be organized in different competition venues in order to give athletes, artists and the people of Nice an opportunity to mingle.
The VII Games of La Francophonie will be held under the theme of solidarity, diversity and excellence, and will be known as modern and environmentally friendly Games featuring sports events, cultural competitions, and activities relating to environmental protection.
