The Olympic preparation at YCPR Marseille
Thanks to its available space, its buildings, its geographical location (close to the Olympic Marina and with direct access to the South bay) and the reputation it has acquired with the organization of international events in recent years, the YCPR is positioned as the best place to prepare for the 2024 Games.
The YCPR is really happy to welcome international delegations to its midst from 2021 until 2024, enabling them to prepare themselves in the best possible way for the 2024 Olympic Games.
A great opportunity for the club but also for its athletes who will live alongside international champions or for the city of Marseille which will see its population increase by several thousand people over 3 years.
