The latest phase of Paris 2024 sales launched today (Wednesday) with tickets for events outside the capital city now available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The third phase of ticketing is dedicated to events organised in the regions, with sports fans able to apply for basketball, handball, football and sailing competitions.
Initially scheduled for the end of 2023, this sales phase was created in order to meet the strong demand encountered during the first two sales phases which took place at the start of 2023 when more than five million tickets were secured.
Football tickets are available for Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice and Saint-Etienne, with sailing in Marseille and basketball and handball in Lille.
French football stars Kylian Mbappe is among those who said they hope to play, while NBA idols are set to be involved in the basketball competition.
A Paris 2024 spokesperson said: “It will offer the opportunity to live the unique experience of the Games in the territories, with family and friends, by going for example to attend the men’s and women’s football tournaments which will bring together the best players on the planet.”
The Paris 2024 hospitality programme is also available for the general public and businesses. Marketed by the official hospitality supplier, On Location, packaged offers including tickets and services such as accommodation and travel.
