Since being set up in 1972 for the preparation of the Munich Olympics, the Vittel Omnisports Preparation Centre (CPO) offers a unique sports platform in France in a setting of 650 hectares of greenery near the city center. There, you can practice 40 different disciplines including 27 Olympics on more than 50 hectares of sports facilities. In our drive to allow sports to be practised by as many people as possible and in the most suitable conditions for performance, the CPO has seen and sees the renovation of a number of sports facilies, including the Pierre de Coubertin Center, creating a hypoxic and climatic space, which is increasingly sought after by athletes to optimize their physical and recovery capacities and, on the other hand, the rehabilitation and modernization of Vittel's sporting legacy. “The VITTEL site and facilities are ideal for to the preparation of the French teams, who find in the resort the calm and the tools necessary for a complete quality preparation. »Jean-Pierre DE VINCENZI ((coach of the French men's basketball team - 1995/2009) "This unit of place is very rare and yet capital for top athletes" Franck Esposito, bronze medalist for the Barcelona Olympics.

Special features

The Omnisports Preparation Centre is a sporting village dedicated to the success of athletes in a privileged environment. The location unit, the privileged access to all sports facilities, the sports medical service and the Vittel SPA thermal establishment, make the CPO an ideal preparation site for the Games. It should also be noted that all athletes receive mineral Vittel water for training and that an experienced, friendly and passionate team about sports is at disposal to allow athletes and staff to focus primaraly on performance.

To sum up, the search for perfection, adaptability, availability and professionalism are as many words in the vocabulary of athletes as they are in Vittel’s CPO!
