football fieldDid You Know?

The Tour de France has been held annually since its inception back in 1903. The only two occasions when it was shelved was during the two World Wars.
France has become a major player at the international level in various sporting disciplines, right from football to motor sports. Some of the world's most prestigious sporting events are held in this European nation, which is otherwise famous for wine, food, cinema, and the Eiffel Tower.

The Tour de France, French Open, Andros Trophy, Six Nations Rugby, and so on. The list of sporting events that are held in France can be best described as 'impressive', which is why perhaps the people here are so enthusiastic when it comes to sports. They don't just restrict themselves to competitive sports, like football and rugby, but also indulge in non-competitive sports, such as parkour.

Also known as association football or soccer, football is the most popular sport in France. Its rich tradition can be traced back to 1872, when it was introduced by English sailors in the port city of Le Havre. Over the course of time, football replaced rugby as the country's most popular sport. The Olympic Gold that France bagged in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics came as a major boost. The French national football team created history on July 12, 1998, when they defeated Brazil 3 - 0 to win their maiden World Cup. Besides the World Cup, they also have two European Championships to their credit. Famous soccer players hailing from France are Zinedine Zidane, Michel Platini, Eric Cantona, Lilian Thuram, Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, Laurent Blanc, and Fabien Barthez.
