Normandy is a sports ground and the city of Rouen is no exception. Amateur sport and professional sport are both well represented in Rouen: Rouen Hockey Elite 76 for ice hockey, Rouen Metropole for basketball, Quevilly-Rouen Metropole for football, the Huskies for baseball, the Loups de Canteleu-Maromme for volleyball, the Rouen Metropole handball club, the table tennis section of SPO Rouen, the Spiders for roller hockey, the Stade Rouennais club for rugby and the Leopards for American football all fly the flag for the capital of Normandy on a national and international level.

Rouen and the communes that surround it also host many sports events such as the 24-hour powerboating, the French Cup, the international athletics meeting in Sotteville-les-Rouen, the Holy Run or the Color Me Rad race, the Rouen 10k, the rowing Défi-Seine or the international Equi Seine show-jumping competition in Canteleu.
There’s nothing better than facilities like the Centre Guy Boissière with its Olympic pool and ice rink, the Kindarena or the Robert Diochon Stadium for hosting international sporting events.
