Reception of Prince Albert

Prince Albert of Monaco hosted the Evaluation Commission from ACES during their visit to the city-state as a candidate for the World Capital of Sport for the year 2025. The evaluators were highly impressed by the sporting fervor within the mere 2.5 square kilometers of the city, boasting nearly 70 facilities and over 50 sporting disciplines, with a significant percentage of active participants. Notably, the city showcased exemplary policies for inclusive sports, serving as an international benchmark for high-profile events, including Formula 1, tennis, football, swimming, and basketball, among others. “The significance of sports in nation-building,” as highlighted in Sebastian Coe’s introductory video for the bid, underscored the city’s commitment to sportsmanship and excellence.
