Born in the 70’s to handle the strong demographic growth of the Paris region, Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines became a aggregate community in 2004, and now partners with 12 municipalities. Nearly 230,000 inhabitants live in this vast, balanced city made up of over 60% natural spaces.
Known as the second largest economic center west of Paris, SQY is also known for its dynamic sports community. Home to numerous major events, our region will host in 2018 alone; a BMX World Cup, a European Women’s Handball Cup match, a European Baseball Cup, but specifically the Ryder Cup. One of the most prestigious golf events, where Europe places against the United States! After this event, we will begin our preparations for the 2024 Olympic Games.
