E2C : A NEW REFERENCE IN STUDENT SPORT TOURNAMENTS
For 40 years, the ESSEC Sports Office organised the T5B, which stands for Tournoi des 5 Ballons. The competition was created in 1979 by a small team of sport enthusiasts, who dreamt of gathering sports lovers from all over the world to compete at the best level, in France.
The T5B has always been an international tournament because we believe in living and sharing fulfilling experiences with people from all over the world, by constantly innovating and embodying the “Pioneering Spirit”, Essec Business School’s motto.
For its 40th birthday in 2019, the T5B, as you used to know it, gave way to a new tournament with major changes while conserving an international identity, the ESSEC Champions Cup (E2C).
The E2C 2020 will take place on the Atlantic Coast, at the seaside resort of Montalivet. This region is mainly famous for its numerous surf spots, its sunny weather and vast beaches.
From April 29st to May 3rd, an entire hotel complex of the resort will welcome the E2C 2020 on the beach, offering an amazing experience for players and supporters.
