Juppé elected president of Host Cities' Club

Alain Juppé, former French Prime Minister and current mayor of Bordeaux, has been elected as president of the Host Cities' Club for UEFA EURO 2016 in France.

The UEFA EURO 2016 host cities have elected the mayor of Bordeaux, Alain Juppé, as president of the Host Cities' Club.

The Host Cities' Club is an association set up to coordinate the activities of the ten French cities that will be staging matches at the next UEFA European Championship, which will be held between 10 June and 10 July 2016. The board includes Jean-François Martins, head of sport and tourism in Paris, Georges Kepenekian (Lyon), José Cobos (former OGC Nice player, now adviser to the city of Nice), Richard Miron (Marseille) and Fabienne Soulas (Saint-Denis).

"I will take care of the collective vision of the Host Cities' Club," said Juppé, Prime Minister of France between May 1995 and June 1997. "The aim is to set up a task force to negotiate the best conditions for the cities and ensure the event is socially acceptable and adds value to our areas."

The ten hosts cities are: Bordeaux, Lens, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Paris, Saint-Denis, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse.
