No more excuses for not practising sport! At the Cité internationale, no less than 53 activities are offered at preferential rates. From individual to group practice, recreational to competitive, sports enthusiasts can choose the offer that suits them. The Cité internationale, the sports centre of the universities of Paris, is convinced of the unifying role of sport. It is a major partner in the Parisian university sports scene.
I had the change to train and make use of the Cité internationale for 3 seasons where my club, le Stade Français Paris, used the rugby pitch. This unique place, open both to Paris and the world, deserves to be recognised as it is a prestigious asset for our city.
