Government support for Euro 2016 in France

COUR DES COMPTES

In hosting Euro 2016, France sought to demonstrate its ability to hold one of the largest international sports competitions. The dual challenge of providing sports and transportation facilities tailored to the tournament’s needs and running a successful event was easily met, in a manner acknowledged to have been highly satisfactory and in an environment that had nonetheless become critical from a security standpoint.
The Cour des comptes and the six relevant regional courts of audit did not attempt to conduct another economic assessment of this event but rather focused their investigations on how the government support needed for the competition was implemented and on the financial risks that the local authorities face in managing expanded and renovated sports arenas.
The report consists of a general overview and of area-based analyses detailing, for each of the 10 host cities, the conditions for financing and operating the Euro 2016 stadiums.
