Olympic Games Paris 2024

From July 26 to August 11, 2024, the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place throughout France. A global event long awaited by thousands of viewers.

Events all over France

2024 are the Games for all of France. The football tournament is played in six provincial stadiums: Bordeaux, Nantes, Lyon, Saint-Etienne, Nice and Marseille. All handball matches are played in the European Metropolis of Lille, and sailing sails on the Mediterranean, in Marseille. For the first time in history, the Games even benefit overseas, with the site of Teahupo'o in Tahiti, the scene of the Olympic surfing competition on one of the most beautiful waves in the whole world.

The Olympic flame will depart from Athens and arrive in Marseille. An exceptional arrival. The flame will cross the sea aboard the Belem, a French three-masted sailboat and one of the oldest three-masted sailboats in Europe.

It is a pleasure for the city of Marseille to be the first stage of the prologue of the Olympic flame and to celebrate its arrival in France with the whole world. Welcoming this great festive celebration will be an opportunity for all the people of Marseille to come together, vibrate and share a great popular adventure in the old port. This global event will allow everyone to participate in a moment of joy and sharing under the seal of fraternity and solidarity.

Benoît Payan, Mayor of Marseille

The commitments of the Olympic Games

The games are the perfect opportunity to bring resolution to the environment, employment, the economy and education. Environmental ambition

The greatest challenge of Humanity, the organization of the Olympic Games, their ambition is to reduce by half the emissions related to the organization. By relying on 95% of existing or temporary sites, Paris has opted for sobriety by building less in order to reduce the carbon impact and allow France's architectural wealth to be celebrated.

A unique Olympic ceremony

The opening ceremony of Paris 2024 marks a break with previous editions of the Games. In 2014, the ceremony promises to be original and unique and marks the Olympic History of great firsts, since for the first time the ceremony will take place outside the stadium. The city will become the living backdrop for an exceptional moment with the various scenes of the show, with the monuments, bridges and cultural establishments.

The parade will take place on boats dedicated to national delegations, equipped with cameras to allow viewers to follow the athletes. Sailing from East to West through Paris, 10,500 athletes will stroll through the middle of the playing field. The six-kilometre crossing will end in front of the Trocadero.
