A friendship match will be held between the Azerbaijani and French wrestlers in Paris on 4 December, 2014. The friendship game was agreed between the president of Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation Fazil Mammadov and the president of French Wrestling Federation Alain Bertholom during a meeting held in May.

This friendship game is of great significance because it will be a sort of test before the European Games to be held next year. Sportsmen, representing all three kinds of wrestling, will join the match, which will be held in one of the most famous palaces in Paris, the Cirque d’hiver (Winter Circus) and organized jointly by the wrestling federations of both countries and the Azerbaijani Embassy in France.

Our national team is already in Paris and our wrestlers are continuing their preparations at the training base of the French wrestling teams. The members of our teams first did some warm-up exercises and continued their training with tactical preparations under the coaches’ guidance. Our Olympic champions Namik Abdullayev, Farid Mansurov, Sharif Sharifov and Toghrul Asgarov, who will join the Friendship match as guests, also joined the training with the team.
