History

  • 1994

    Olympic Capital since 1994, is proud of this title and intends to strengthen this status by reinforcing its sporting identity. The presence of the IOC, together with the Olympic Museum, the Court of Arbitration for Sport and no fewer than 50 sports federations and organisations within its walls, makes Lausanne and its surrounding area the administrative capital of world sport.

  • 2001

    Based in this status, the City of Lausanne decided to build a House of International Sport in Lausanne. A limited company, Maison du Sport International SA, was founded with the International Olympic Committee, the Canton de Vaud and the City of Lausanne as equal shareholders. This project was also supported by the Swiss Confederation.

  • 2001

    In the same year, Lausanne granted it a 90-year lease on municipal land in the immediate proximity to the International Olympic Committee headquarters, covering more than 5,000m2.

  • 2005

    The construction work began this year.

  • 2006

    The Maison du Sport International was officially opened on June 23, 2006.

  • 2008

    To face new requests of international federations, the decision to add a 4th building was made.

  • 2011

    This second stage has been officially inaugurated on May 26, 2011.
