L'événementiel sportif est-il de nature à renforcer l'identité d'un territoire ?

Abstract : This project is talking about the notions of territorial identity and sports events. Working on it gave us a sense of the consequences that could bring a big event such as the World Championships in Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini-Trampoline that will occurs In Metz during November 2010, on economic and social level as well as on the mediatic part. The mental image that habitants have of their territory and the one that foreigners have of it seems to be essential elements to take into account while talking about imaging. It seems like local authorities understood well and use sports (as well as sports events) with the objectives we talk about earlier, approaching it in various forms, which seems to have an interesting impact on the picturing that held in trust have of their own territory. However, it is important to put into perspective this notion of territorial identity correlated to sport because of the uncertainty living within sport's background (results, injuries, doping, imponderables...)
