We cannot wait to see the swimming events in the electric atmosphere of the Paris La Défense Arena; see the world’s top artistic swimmers, divers and water polo players compete in the Olympic-class Seine Saint Denis complex, or watch our open water athletes swim in the Seine during the Paris 2024 Games. With just under 500 days to go until the world arrives in the French capital for the Olympics, now's the time to secure the seats to watch all your favourite aquatic sports live as athletes write themselves into the history books and turn into legends.
From the world-famous Eiffel Tower Stadium to the historic La Defense Arena transforming from a rugby union club grounds into an Olympic swimming pool to open water swimmers taking to the Seine for their competitions, Paris has no shortage of stunning venues where the events of the XXXIII Olympiad will take place next year.
It’s little wonder then that Paris 2024 organisers sold over 3.25 million event ticket packages during the first part of the Games ticket sales, making for the largest sale of tickets ever in France.
Helping fuel this surge was a balanced pricing structure that sees about half of the available tickets costing 50 euros or less. During the initial sales phase, more than 400,000 tickets priced at 24 euros were sold, and less than five percent of the purchased tickets cost more than 200 euros.
The first phase of tickets was sold in event packs to promote what makes the Games so special: the diversity of sports and the opportunity to discover new sports and disciplines.
Now’s the Time for Individual Paris 2024 Ticket Sales | Phase Two Opened on March 15th
With 500 days now to go until the Paris 2024 Games get underway, you have the first chance to get seats just for your favourite aquatics events.
The second sales phase of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games is now here: the single tickets! You will be able to sign up for the draw for this second phase from 15 March until 20 April (6 pm CET).
For the upcoming Summer Games, a total of around 10 million tickets will be put on sale. Eighty percent of these will be made directly available to the public via the official ticketing platform.
This phase of sales begins with a draw registration period. Anyone who has not yet secured the tickets they were hoping for, who has not yet registered for the draw for the second phase, or who has not yet applied for tickets, is invited to register at tickets.paris2024.org.
If you want more information about the ticket draw, the Paris 2024 team has you covered here.
And why a draw, you ask? From the Paris 2024 team: "A draw is the fairest way to give everyone, everywhere in the world, a chance to get a ticket for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The allocation of specific purchase timeslots also spreads the amount of traffic on the sales platform to provide a smoother buying experience."
