The future of sport will be written in Paris

After three editions under its own name, Global Sports Week is back this year with a different format and a different name. Now associated with Viva Technology, it has created “Future of Sport”, an international event dedicated to the positive transformation of sport. It will take place from 14 to 17 June 2023 in Hall 2 of the Parc des Expositions at Porte de Versailles, in the south of Paris. The event promises to be a gathering of brands, companies and start-ups at the cutting edge of innovation in sport and technology. But with just a few months to go before the Rugby World Cup in France, and just over a year before the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, “Future of Sport” will also take on an institutional dimension, as shown by the list of the first speakers announced by the organisers. It includes the French Minister for Sport and the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, the President of the Paris 2024 OCOG, Tony Estanguet, the Director of External Affairs for the Los Angeles 2028 Games, Michelle Schwartz, the Director General of the International Cycling Union, Amina Lanaya, and the General Coordinator of the 2026 Youth Games in Dakar, Ibrahima Wade. Current and recently retired sportsmen and women include skier Alexis Pinturault, footballer Blaise Matuidi, sailors François Gabart and Alex Thomson, and tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. A regular participant at Global Sports Week, the IOC will be represented by Julie Duffus, its Head of Sustainable Development. The ticket office is now open. Day passes and four-day passes are available. FrancsJeux is a media partner of “Future of Sport”.
