The European Company Sport Games are a recreational sporting event in which employees compete against each other during the course of four days.
The first edition of the European Company Sport Games took place in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The event is organized every two years and has grown into a happening with an average of 5.000 employees from more than 20 countries, 23 different sports, with Olympic-inspired opening and closing ceremonies.
Bordeaux, France, listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, will host the 24th edition of the ECSG, from June 14th to 18th 2023.
This great celebration of company sport is open to all employees, from all companies, at any level of practice.
The games offer 37 competing disciplines and, for the first time, leisure activities open for non-competitors, in order to actively participate in the event! The total number of participants is expected to reach 10.000 persons!
Every structure, multinational, self-employed, SME or local authority, will find activities adapted to their expectations that will enable them to share unforgettable moments.

With several major modern and historical sites dedicated to sport, Bordeaux and its conurbation offer a large choice of sporting activities.
The density and diversity of sports facilities, coupled with the know-how and experience of the voluntary sector, supported by the city, make Bordeaux the scene of numerous mass or high-level sporting gatherings every year.
