THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN STUDY
For the past 6 years, Saint-Gobain has been organizing the Business School student soccer championship under the primer sponsorship of POINT.P & Saint-Gobain Distribution Bâtiment France. In 2017, when launching the Group’s new employer brand with its tagline “Invent Yourself. Reshape the world.” the event was renamed Coupe de France Saint-Gobain des ESC.

KNUCKLE DOWN TO WIN 

The teams will try to knock emlyon business school and KEDGE Business School Bordeaux students from their pedestal, last season’s winners who competed under the generous sponsorship of Jérôme Rothen and Marinette Pichon, former players in the French soccer teams. The winners will become the co-organizers of next year’s championship. 

SOME PLAY ON THE FIELD. OTHERS ON THEIR KEYBOARDS.
