Created in 2016, Sport Incub is a non-profit organisation whose main aim is to develop and promote high level sports and athletes in Toulouse and the Occitanie Region.

The association promotes sport disciplines and high level athletes who get little or no media coverage, and helps them launch their careers.

More specifically, the association aims to promote and publicize high level women’s sports and athletes, by advocating for equal opportunity policies in sports at all levels.

Since 2017, the Sport Incub Association organises the Toulouse International Ladies Cup, an annual pre-season tournament reserved only for the top women’s football clubs worldwide, whose core purpose is to promote gender equality in sports and develop women’s football worldwide.

In 2016, the association won the jury prize at the 2016 edition of the “Trophées Sentez-Vous Sport” for its numerous initiatives in favour of local high level athletes, in particular for supporting them before, during and after the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games in Brazil.
