Angers is a stopover city of Olympic torch relay. It will be the arrival point of a route started in Maine-et-Loire on the morning of May 28, 2024, at Baugé-en-Anjouand which will unite the entire Department.

Angevins are invited to take part in this friendly, festive and unique day (the last Games in France date back 100 years).

Entertainment villages along the route

Real entertainment villages will be crossed by the torch relay route:

  • the Josette-et-Roger-Mikulak stadiumcapital of athletics in Anjou, home of many major athletics events for nearly 20 years and preparation center for the Games;
  • The dock, modern and emblematic cultural establishment, to host the marriage of sport and culture around new disciplines which join for the first time the events of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (such as skateboarding, climbing or breakdancing) and their associated cultures ;
  • Heart of Maine, living space that connects the two banks, panoramic balcony overlooking the river, offering the possibility of hosting inclusive and open disciplines, in the field of health and para-sports.

This day will also be an opportunity to more than 2,500 cycle 3 schoolchildren (CM1, CM2 and sixth grade classes) to participate in workshops, initiations and demonstrations around three major themes supported and valued by the City:

  • Athleticism. For several years, the City has signed an agreement with the French Athletics Federation to host major national events, such as the French Elite Athletics Championships, the next edition of which will be held from June 28 to 30, 2024 at Mikulak Stadium. This will be the last qualifying competition for the Paris Games,
  • Urban cultures. They will be in the spotlight in particular with breakdancing, a new discipline at the Games this summer in Paris, which is increasingly uniting the public and in particular young people.
  • Parasport and health sport. Inclusion is at the heart of the city’s sports policy and the Paralympic component is an integral part of the Games.
