Tignes, where sport is in the blood
Tignes was elected “The Sportiest Town” by the daily sports paper ‘L’Equipe’. The key to victory? Hosting sporting events on an international scale, welcoming high profile sports stars (starting with the French Football Team in 1997), the existence of an outstanding sporting infrastructure, high level ‘Made in Tignes’ sportsmen and women, a sports-mad clientele (85% of the Tignes clientele take part in sporting activities) and a whole community of “Tignards” who love sport.
Following the example of towns famed for their flowers, Tignes proudly displays the colours of the sportiest town.
