In France, the qualifications phase is organized on the field of 5 profesionnal clubs in Rennes, Evian, Paris, Montpellier and Bordeaux, before the national final in the training facilities of Girondins de Bordeaux FC.
The Danone Nations Cup France counts on the support of a great ambassador since 2015: player of Paris Saint-Germain and France team, Blaise Matuidi. Through his experience and his "big child" vision, he's close to all the children who participate in the event and relay sports values to them: surpassing yourself, respect of others, self-discipline and competition spirit.
The event is based on strong values: open-mindedness, respect and fair-play. The partnership with the "Fondaction du Football" implies that each person concerned by the competition (children, coachs, staffs, parents...) fits with these values.
