The Ligue Européenne de Natation (LEN) is the European governing body in charge of swimming, diving, synchronized swimming & water-polo. Founded more than 80 years ago and established in Luxemburg since 2010, it recently moved to Nyon becoming the 56th major sport governing body settling in the Canton of Vaud. Working hand in hand with Vaud’s Foreign Direct Investment Agency (DEV), the Greater Geneva Berne area (GGBa) assisted LEN throughout the relocation process.
The new LEN HQ were officially inaugurated on Friday, May 22nd, in the presence of FINA President Dr. Julio C. Maglione, LEN President Paolo Barelli and Philippe Leuba, Minister of the Department of Economy and Sports of the Canton of Vaud. “Now we turned a new page, and after going all the way through decades via London, Rome and Luxembourg, finally we arrived home here, where the most important federations have their head offices, too”, the LEN President said in a press release.
According to LEN, Nyon offered fine conditions and a very convenient location with close proximity to the Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA) and other leading sport organizations, as well as easy access to one of Europe’s most important airports, Geneva.
