The Monegasque Federation of Athletics and its president S.A.S Prince Albert II of Monaco strive each year to present to its numerous spectators an enthusiastic evening and a high level sports show.
The first Monaco Herculis EBS meeting took place in 1987 in the newly constructed Stade Louis II. The Monegasque Federation of Athletics’ goal to promote this sport is supported by the Prince who holds sporting values close to his heart and wishes to grant the Principality the status of a “sporting center of great importance”. Prince Albert himself chairs the MFA since its creation.
Since its entry in 2010 in the IAAF Diamond League, Herculis has been greatly successful; indeed, it ranked World’s Best Meeting in 2011, 2014, 2015 and in 2018 thanks to outstanding athletic performances. In 2018, it achieved the best score ever!
The day of the Herculis meeting, the Louis II Stadium hosts 1000m races which are open to everyone - members and non-members from children to veterans. Finally, at the end of the Diamond League competition, music and fireworks light-up Louis II's track.
It is on next July 12th starting at 7pm that Louis II stadium will host the International Meeting, Herculis EBS 2019, for a night of great show !
