SPORTS STARS : A not-to-be-missed event in French Sport



Since 2002, Sports Stars has brought together the greatest champions of French sport around a key project: “Today’s Champions sponsor the Champions of tomorrow”. Twenty of the year’s top sportsmen and women sponsor a promising youngster in their own discipline and spend a week sharing a variety of sporting experiences with him or her. The aim of these various experiences is to allow the young hopefuls to express themselves, to award the Star prize to the best young hope for France, to promote inter-generational exchange and sharing between the ambitious youngsters and their idols, as well as to help these young people prepare for their future profession.

 

 

Every year, these athletes meet up at Sports Stars in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere to promote and defend the values of sport, share their experiences, help, support and pass on their passion to tomorrow’s champions. This common desire to share experiences and promote sporting values, through fellowship, generosity or the pushing of one’s own limits, makes it possible to enrich every star of French sport and help them grow. 



 

MER-AIR-TERRE : Watch-making Partner of Sports Stars’ 15th  year

 

Since 2005 the French watch-maker MER-AIR-TERRE has been combining strength and understatement with the launch of the MER-AIR-TERRE range designed for all lovers of sport and adventure who want to wear a watch with a unique character.

 

Based on family values from its foundation and in all its daily operations, MER-AIR-TERRE holds a fitting place in the spirit of the great family of Sports Stars and its concept of sponsorship and the transmitting of values from one generation of champions to the next.

 

With these principles at its core being, it was quite natural for this French brand to wish to appear by the side of the Association “Les Etoiles du Sport Solidaires” (the Association of United Sports Stars).

 

After a close collaboration with the French foreign legion in 2013 and with various army special forces, MER-AIR-TERRE is now hoping to use its values of passion and precision, know-how and excellence, team spirit and thoroughness to serve the values of fellowship, integrity, generosity, enthusiasm and excellence exemplified by the Sports Stars and the   Association of United Sports Stars.
