While the Paris 2024 OCOG announced last week that the Olympic basketball tournament would ultimately not take place in hall 6 of Porte de Versailles, it seems that things have also moved in recent hours for the Olympic tournament in handball.

Indeed, after the wave of protest from the players of the French team, it would seem that the international handball federation, through its president Hassan Moustaphaalso managed to bend the team of Tony Estanguet to no longer organize the competition in the capital of Hauts de France in Lille… but in Limousin in the capital of Porcelain: Limoges!

Indeed, the Paris 2024 OCOG would have been very attracted by the project for a new hall planned in Limoges presented by the leaders of Limoges Handball. The club, which is increasingly talked about in the Starligue, has succeeded in setting up an organizational project to organize the men’s and women’s tournament for the 2024 Paris Olympics. The new hall, currently under construction near the legendary hall de Beaublanc, should see the light of day in 2023 with an incredible capacity of 15,000 seats!
