Paris 2024 : The Summer Olympics in the City of Light

The 2024 Summer Olympic Games, officially named the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, will be held in Paris from 26 July to 11 August 2024. The designation of the city was made official at the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on 13 September 2017.

After London, Paris becomes the second city to host the Summer Olympics for the third time, with a gap of a century between each edition (1900, 1924 and 2024), before it was Los Angeles’ turn (1932, 1984 and 2028).

The ‘Paris 2024’ project is based on using 95% of existing or temporary venues, for a budget of €6.6 billion. The only infrastructure to be built is an aquatic centre, a 7,500-seat indoor arena for basketball and wrestling, and the Olympic Village, which will be erected in Ile-Saint-Denis and Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine in Seine-Saint-Denis. The media village will be located in Dugny.
