The Jeux de la Francophonie
Since 1987, the Jeux de la Francophonie have been held every 4 years in order to bring together the world’s French-speaking population for cultural and sports competitions. The innovative idea for a friendly competition promoting French-speaking youth and strengthening ties created between participating countries was inspired by the Ancient Games.
