Nantes will be simply “Handballissime”
With 100 parks and gardens, more than 10.000 trees and rivers Loire and Erdre merging in the city, nature is very present in Nantes – just like it is in the entire Département Loire-Atlantique. The beautiful nature has also inspired the architects of Hall XXL, which has been built in the spirit of sustainability in the Parc des Expositions. It is the first one of its kind built according to the high environmental ISO 14001 standards.
It was in the Hall XXL in which the French men’s national team produced some brilliant performances during the World Championship 2017 – the “Handballissime” show of the Women’s EHF EURO 2018 will stop in Nantes for Group B of the preliminary round and one main round group, including the French national team if they qualify for this stage. And whenever the French national team plays in Nantes, the audience is on fire.
The handball lovers from the Pays de la Loire are already spoiled with great performances of the local women’s and men’s teams and they are ready to celebrate every unforgettable performance of all participating teams at the Women’s EHF EURO 2018. This is what turns Nantes in an absolute go-to place for handball.
