In 2024, Paris will be the host city for the Olympic Games!
For this historic event, the City of Light is thinking big! Visitors will be able to watch events at top sporting venues in Paris and the Paris region, as well as at emblematic monuments in the capital visited by several millions of tourists each year. The promise of exceptional moments to experience in an exceptional setting!
Beach volleyball events will be held opposite the Eiffel Tower on the Champs de Mars, fencing and taekwondo under the glass roof of the Grand Palais and archery on the esplanade at Invalides. The Champs-Elysées will be the setting for cycling and the park of the Palace of Versailles for equestrian events. A great spectacle in prospect!
Iconic French sporting venues will of course be playing their part. The Stade de France will host the opening and closing ceremony and football matches will take place at the Parc des Princes. As for tennis and boxing events, they will be held at the prestigious Roland Garros stadium.
The success of Paris’s bid to organize the 2024 Games is a perfect opportunity to celebrate. And Paris will be doing just that over the next few days with festivities that include a big concert for everyone on the square in front of City Hall on Friday 15 September from 8.50pm.
A great way to celebrate this upcoming grand event!
