Alès: IMT Mines Alès students are preparing for their “Olympic Games”

During the Cartel des Mines, from 27 to 30 April, 1,800 future engineers will compete in 12 sporting events.

For sixty years, the students of the Mines have organized an interscholastic sports challenge every year: the Cartel des Mines.

For this 48th edition of the competition, the students of the IMT Mines Alès are responsible for the organization. Four days of competitions have been set, from 27 to 30 April 2023. About twelve sports: football, rugby, handball, basketball, volleyball, badminton, cross, tennis, table tennis, climbing, swimming and athletics. 1,800 future engineers will compete in the various stages of Alès.

Lots of logistical challenges to overcome

To prepare for this great event, 27 students are already at work. The vice-president of the organizing committee, Paulin, lists the schools that will participate in the competition: “Firstly, all the schools in the Mines Télécoms network; secondly, two schools in Morocco also responded favorably. We also have contacts with schools in Spain and Germany.”

There is no shortage of difficulties in the face of such a logistical and organizational challenge. Zoé, head of communications, explains: “We have to welcome everyone, find spaces, provide for catering, guarantee the safety of the participants, transport the teams to the various sites… We have discussed with the Municipality of Alès for the sports facilities, with the exception of the athletics track, but we will find a solution. “

For these four days of sport and celebration, the students wanted to put Alès in the spotlight: “We will involve traders and companies in this event. With Cartel we support Alès’ candidacy for the “Terre de jeux 2024″ brand”.

Students looking for sponsors

The cartel’s budget is estimated at around 300,000 euros. The students put their hands in their pockets, but at the same time they started looking for sponsors.

“Various formulas are offered to ensure the visibility of companies. We will prepare a Cartel village, at the Méjannes exhibition center, with stands for our partners. We have also opened an online kitten”.
