Paris 2024 Olympic Games: start of the draw, do you have to re-register for the 2nd phase of ticket sales?

The first phase of sales is over, the second will begin on May 11. But first, future buyers must register for the draw from Wednesday March 15 until April 20 at 6 p.m.

The first drawn were the first served. The first phase of the draw was concluded and the lucky winners were able to choose programs in which several disciplines appeared through packs. On Wednesday March 15, the official Olympic Games ticket office is open again on its website where it is possible to register for the draw for the second phase. This platform will close on April 20 at 6 p.m. This time the lucky ones will only be able to choose single tickets. There will be a priori 300,000 tickets at 24 euros, and "1.5 million" in total according to Tony Estanguet. Please note that those who were drawn the first time do not need to re-register. They just have to wait again and hope to be selected.

During the first stage, tickets for the Olympic Games were snapped up at exorbitant prices for some. The organizers had promised to put on sale 1 million tickets at 24 euros. Yes, but according to the Paris 2024 committee, 3.25 million tickets have been sold. However, many people criticized the price of the tickets as very expensive. The former Olympic champion in athletics in 1996, Jean Galfione, for example, "did not try to buy tickets", as he explained to the newspaper L'Equipe.

Obviously the most requested events are the most expensive. To attend the opening ceremony on the Seine it will cost between 90 euros and 2700 euros. Regarding the closing ceremony at the Stade de France, some seats will represent the sum of 1,600 euros. There are no additional venues, Olympic Games tickets are available at from May 11.

Finally, if you miss the second phase of the draw or if you are not chosen, the organizers have planned a third phase which will take place at the end of the year. A section dedicated to resale will also be created before the start of the Olympic Games in July 2024. Tickets cannot be resold for more than the purchase price.

In 2024, the Summer Olympics will land in the French capital. The organizing committee unveiled the beginnings of the opening ceremony with a show that promises to be historic on the Seine. If the project is carried out, it will be the very first time that the latter will not take place within the Olympic stadium. Here are the pictures:

The Paris 2024 Olympic Games will be held in the Parisian capital but also in Saint-Denis, Yvelines, Marseille and Tahiti.

The first phase of ticket sales takes place between February 15 and March 15 after a lottery to create bespoke packs. Single ticket sales will begin after this date until April 15.

Each pack must consist of three sessions, but you cannot yet buy places for the 100m final, for example. Each person can purchase 10 packs of 3 sessions. If the purchase depends on your budget, here is the detail of the prices according to the events.

If you haven't received an email by March 15, don't panic... Seven million tickets will still be available. Between March 15 and April 15, registration will be launched for a new draw which will take place from May. This second stage, that of the sale of single tickets, concerns the 20% of the most requested Olympic sessions.

At each Olympiad, new sports apply to join or rejoin the Olympics program. In 2016, rugby 7 and golf had thus appeared. Before the possible addition of new disciplines, here is the list of the 28 sports on the program of the Summer Olympics:

Here is the list of the new events that will be on the program of the 2024 Olympics

The Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games (OCJo) indicated in February 2019 that these 2024 Paris Olympics, which were initially to start on August 2, will finally take place from July 26 to August 11, 2024. It is obviously a little early to know the dates of the events, the daily calendar and the TV program for this sports fortnight. These subjects will be studied once the list of sports and the selected venues are official.

The vote and the designation of the host city of the 2024 Olympics took place on Wednesday, September 13, 2017, during the 130th session of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Lima (Peru), after the final presentations of each of the candidatures, and after the report of the Chairman of the IOC Evaluation Commission. The 84 IOC members present in Peru have unanimously validated the tripartite agreement granting the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, and those of 2028 in Los Angeles. Recall that Paris had indeed recently failed in its quest in 1992 (beaten by Barcelona), in 2008 (beaten by Beijing) and in 2012 (beaten by London). In 2004, Lille was chosen to represent France, without success either. You have to go back to 1900 and 1924 to find traces of the Summer Olympics in France, each time in the French capital.
