Where to buy tickets for the 2024 Olympic Games?

The 2024 Olympic Games will take place from July 26 to August 11 2024 in France. The Paris 2024 Paralympic Games will take place between 28 August and 8 September 2024. Only one official website ensures the sale of tickets for the sports events or for the so called tailor-made "packs". More information in this article about buying tickets for the 2024 Olympics.

 

Only one official website sells tickets for the French 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games: Paris 2024 Official Ticketing – Olympic and Paralympic Games

This Paris 2024 Organising Committee secures and operates the website.

Several offers are available:

  • Customised packs (first tickets up for sale). The tailor-made pack allows you to select tickets for 3 competition sessions. It covers all the sports and venues, except surfing for which you can buy single tickets. For example: a ticket for a beach volleyball quarter final, a ticket for a rugby 7s semi-final and a ticket for the taekwondo final;
  • Single tickets ;
  • "hospitality" and "travel" packages. The hospitality programme, developed by the Paris 2024 Organising Committee, offers standard and tailor-made packages that include guaranteed tickets to the sporting events, access to in-stadium and out-of-stadium hospitality areas as well as travel, accommodation, cultural activities, fine dining and sporting offers. These packages are only available through On Location.

Tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies, and for certain sessions, will not be available during the phase of tailor-made pack sales but you can buy them during the second single-ticket sales phase in May 2023.

Good to know: tickets for the Olympics will be 100% digital and secure.

  • In order to gain access to the Olympic ticketing system for the purchase of customised packages, you had to register for the draw until 31 January 2023 on this website:  connect.paris2024.org

A draw will take place between 13 February and 15 March. If they draw you, you will receive an e-mail starting 15 February giving you a specific slot to purchase your pack. You will get a 48-hour window to buy one or more customised packs.

Carefully watch your e-mails during this period, as you will only receive one slot!

During this 48h window, you will pick a first session by choosing the category of sports and the number of tickets. You will then operate a second choice within the proposed categories for the same number of tickets. The same applies to the third pick.

You will be able to purchase up to 6 tickets per session and up to 30 tickets per account in any Olympic sales phase. You may purchase tickets for friends or family. But as said, during the packs sale, you will have to buy the same number of tickets for all sessions.

  • For the purchase of single tickets, registration for the draw will take place in March/April 2023 and the opening of single ticket sales for those drawn will take place during May 2023.

No.

When you buy online, you have at least a 14-day right of withdrawal. However, when buying tickets for leisure activities on specific dates, there is usually no legal right of cancellation.

So you cannot cancel purchased Olympic Games tickets and you will not receive a refund!

No.

The official ticketing website is the sole authorised seller of tickets for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This means that no other parties have authorisation to sell tickets either from sales outlets or websites.

The official website prohibits the sale of tickets and packages outside and this constitutes an offence (article 313.6.2 of the French penal code).

It is also very risky. You might pay much more for a ticket than its face value, and you could be refused entry to the event if you purchased a fake ticket or an electronic ticket sold several times.

Do not hesitate to report this website on the platform of the French fraud control authority via SignalConso.

If you are a victim of a fraud or scam, file a preliminary complaint with the policeMasécurité.fr (interieur.gouv.fr)

Ticket holders will get access to an official ticket resale platform.
This platform will allow both ticket holders who are unable to take advantage of the Games to resell their tickets, and aspiring spectators to buy tickets.

Ticketing for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games will officially open in autumn 2023, via the same ticketing platform.

Concerning hospitality and travel packages: On Location will also be the one and only official hospitality provider for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.

More information will be communicated in early 2023.

Yes. Every spectator who attends the Games must have a paid ticket, regardless of age. If you wish to attend a sporting event with your new-born child, you must buy a ticket for them as well.

For the 2024 Olympic Games the same rates will apply to all spectators. There are no reduced prices for children.

For the 2024 Paralympic Games, there is a Family offer for children under 12 years old. If you buy 2 standard tickets, you will be able to buy up to 2 children's tickets for €10. This offer is available for all sports sessions (excluding the opening and closing ceremonies) and is subject to availability.
