Some of you expressed concern about the limited number of flights planned so far to come to Bordeaux in June.

Don’t worry! We are currently working with the airport in Bordeaux and the airlines based there. As a result of the COVID 19 pandemic, flight plans are now released with less anticipation and will be available in early 2023. There will be many more possibilities in a few days or weeks.

If you wish to travel by train, Bordeaux is only two hours away from Paris (Montparnasse train station and Charles de Gaulle airport). Upon your arrival, you will be given a travel card with free and unlimited use of Bordeaux’s public transports (bus, tram), for 7 days.




The 24th edition of the European Company Sport Games is coming soon and we receive many accommodation requests.

From camping to palace, there is a choice for everyone. Accommodation availability is decreasing rapidly. As of today, 3,000 beds out of 7,000 reserved by the organisation are already booked.

“I have full confidence in the organisation of the ECSG 2023 in Bordeaux!”

“Since I know that the French Federation for Company Sport has the experience of organizing such big events and that their big heart for company sport is real and authentic, I believe these European Games could not have wished for a better host. I know that the experience of the participants has their full priority, and they will do everything with a lot of quality and professionalism.

Also, after the Coordinators Meeting last year, I could see with my own eyes that all facilities and accommodations are very carefully selected and very well situated.
Every venue is located in Bordeaux itself and is connected through a good and efficient network of transportation. Above all, the city itself is, of course, beautiful and pleasant to hang out. Therefore I really look forward going to Bordeaux and
participating with our Belgian delegation, and I know for sure that they are too.

Let’s all together make ECSG Bordeaux 2023 a unique and unforgettable experience, and moreover enjoy the great benefits at work afterwards! Because it’s a fact: the effects of joining these Games as a team are just fantastic and beyond all expectation.”

Silke Veeckman – Coordinator of company sport projects, Belgian Company Sport Federation (FROS), Belgium





“We participated in 10 ECSG and will come to Bordeaux.”

“We are a group that plays tennis for recreational purposes and we are members of the Croatian Federation for Sports Recreation “Sport for All”. We participated in 10 ECSG already: 1995 in Zaragoza, 1997 in Trondheim, 1999 in Andalo (Trento), 2009 in Rovinj, 2011 in Hamburg, 2013 in Prague, 2015 in Riccione, 2017 in Gent, 2019 in Salzburg and 2022 in Arnhem.

Although we are in our golden years already we still play mainly in couples at least once a week. We come to Bordeaux because it is an interesting destination to visit, where we can enjoy famous wines and where we expect to have a great time..

Of course, and most importantly, we want to take part in the competition. We registered for the tennis team competition over 40 with 3 teams: two with 4 members and one with 3 members. We will also come with 2 accompanying members who won’t play but will definitively cheer on us.”
