Sport in France - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sports in France play an important role in French society, and the country has a strong sporting history. The most popular sport in France is football.

Football is the most popular sport in France, with 2,225,595 licensed players in 2009. Football is also known as Soccer (primarily United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa)[1] The sport was imported from England at the end of the 19th century, under the name of association football. In its early days, the sport gained followers mainly in the Paris area and the Northern part of the country - Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Normandy were the first teams that were created outside Paris. In the South, football's competitor, rugby football, was more favoured at the time. Established in 1919 from competing organizations, the Fédération française de football consists of 18,000 teams.[1]

The France national football team is one of only eight teams to have won the FIFA World Cup (1998), with good results in other editions: runners-up in 2006, third place in 1958 and 1986, and fourth place in 1982.

Seine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Seine (French: La Seine, pronounced: [la sɛn]) is a 776 km (482 mi)-long river and an important commercial waterway within the Paris Basin in the north of France. It rises at Source-Seine, 30 kilometres (19 mi) northwest of Dijon in northeastern France in the Langres plateau, flowing through Paris and into the English Channel at Le Havre (and Honfleur on the left bank).[1] It is navigable by ocean-going vessels as far as Rouen, 120 km (75 mi) from the sea. Over 60% of its length, as far as Burgundy, is negotiable by commercial riverboats and nearly its whole length is available for recreational boating; excursion boats offer sightseeing tours of the Rive Droite and Rive Gauche within the city of Paris.

There are 37 bridges within Paris and dozens more spanning the river outside the city. Examples in Paris include the Pont Louis-Philippe and Pont Neuf, the latter of which dates back to 1607. Outside the city, examples include the Pont de Normandie, one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world, which links Le Havre to Honfleur.

The name "Seine" comes from the Latin Sequana.[2] Some[who?] have argued that Sicauna is cognate to the name of Saône River. However, a suggested relationship to the River Shannon in Ireland is unlikely, given the very different forms of the two. (Gaelic an tSiona, dative Sionainn, is from Prehistoric Irish *Sinona. Another proposal has it that Sequana is the Latin version of the Gaulish Issicauna Lower-Icauna, which would be the diminutive of Icauna, which was the Gaulish name of the Yonne River.) Some believe the ancient Gauls considered the Seine to be a tributary of the Yonne, which indeed presents a greater average discharge than the Seine. (The river flowing through Paris would be called Yonne if the standard rules of geography were applied.)

List of countries where French is an official language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of sovereign states and territories where French is an official or de facto language.

The following is a list of the 29 countries where French is an official language. Note that in most of these countries, French is not the only language, and therefore the population does not indicate the number of French-speakers.

In Belgium, the official languages are French, Dutch, and German. The country is divided in four linguistic parts: Brussels (officially bilingual, de facto French-speaking majority), Wallonia (French) and Flanders (Dutch) and the German-speaking Community. See further: Languages of Belgium.

Automotive industry in France - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

France was a pioneer in the automotive industry and is the 10th-largest automobile manufacturer in the world by 2011 unit production and the third-largest in Europe (after Germany and Spain).[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

France is home to two major automaking companies - PSA Peugeot Citroën (owner of the Peugeot and Citroen marques) and Renault S.A. (owner of the Renault marque and of Dacia of Romania, and Renault Samsung Motors of South Korea). The France-based Renault Trucks is a major producer of commercial vehicles and is owned by Volvo AB. Both PSA Peugeot Citroën and Renault produce a large number of vehicles outside of France.

French-designed cars have won the European Car of the Year and World Car of the Year awards numerous times. The Citroën DS took third place in Car of the Century award and has been named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine.[8][9]
