Step into the city of Poitiers, France, and you’ll find all corners of life. Whether it’s the University of Poitiers, the churches that have stood for centuries, the scenic Clain River, or the Futuroscope theme park, the city is a host of French culture.

The city is also home to Gamers Assembly, a French LAN that hosts a wide variety of events and tournaments every spring, including TF2. Gamers Assembly has announced their return to Poitiers with Gamers Assembly 2017, and the Exhibition Center of Poitiers will be filled with hundreds of players from all across France and Europe.

TF2 is returning to France (picture by David "[Fmapkmn](http://www.teamfortress.tv/user/Fmapkmn)" Thao) TF2 is returning to France (picture by David "Fmapkmn" Thao)

Taking place from April 15th-17th at the Exhibition Center of Poitiers in Poitiers, France, the event will see the best teams from France and beyond compete for guts, glory, and most importantly: baguettes.

Registration for the event is now open, with BYOC tickets costing €50, and Visitor passes costing €15. PC and monitor rentals will also be available for around €125-150. There will be 8 teams slots for the event, but additional slots might be added if more teams signup.

Had a great time last year, not sure if I can afford to go this year, but highly recommend going, especially if you're from outside of France because:

1) The staff were extremely helpful and friendly (and were very patient with us for not knowing any French). Seriously without them it would have been really hard work to set up rentals and do almost anything.

2) The Frenchies were friendly, welcoming and a good laugh and generous with their sharing of alcohol and other bad habits.

3) Felt like the French community really wanted you there to help the LAN grow.

4) Beautiful historic city with lots of close-by amenities, Hotels were nearby and so forth.

PCs we rented from Infoshow (Shouted to them and Maxi for arranging it) were good quality as well. I only recommend you don't drive there unless you know how to avoid Toll Roads, between us we probably funded the French motorwat system for the next decade.

Just had a look at price for travel.

Ends being cheapest to fly then get a train.

Gatwick -> Bordeaux goes for about £110-120
Bordeaux -> Potiers Train is £15 each way and takes 2 hours.
