To make the cheers of the Euro 2016 echo all over France, the 11 Tricolore committee – composed of 11 Euro 2016 key figures named by the French president – launched ‘Foot Foraine’, a cultural and sport event dedicated to football fans, newbies and onlookers. It’s a unique experience that deals with all aspects of football: culture, art and sport.


In Lille, Foot foraine invests the Gare Saint Sauveur (esplanade, la Halle B) and the Parc Jean-Baptiste Lebasand and offers entertainment around football for all the family.

You’ll find art installations, video games, carousels, funny football pitches, football tables, supporters rooms and concerts all summer long. Ready, steady, go!
