AREVA was one of the sponsors of the 33rd Sabre National, the traditional wrestling championship in Niger, which was held from February 25 to March 4 at Maradi, the economic capital, located 600 km east of Niamey. It was first time that AREVA had supported the event.

The national sport of Niger, traditional wrestling is very popular in the countryside as well as in the cities. Each year this event attracts thousands of people of all ages, men and women from all social strata, and young people from all regions, thus creating social bonds and contributing to the unity of the country.

Consistent with its commitments to the people of Niger, the AREVA group did its part to make this sports festival and major cultural and social event a big success. All the matches were broadcast live on radio and national television.
