Paris 2024 Paralympic Games organisers are aiming to sell all 2.8 million tickets, which will go on sale on October 9. 

Half of all tickets are set to be priced at €25 (£21/$27) or less, while other tickets for the 22 sports will range from €15 to €100.

“I think there will be a massive demand for Paris 2024 Paralympic Games tickets once they go on-sale,” said International Paralympic Committee (IPC) president, Andrew Parsons.

“The Paralympic Games has always prided itself on offering accessible tickets to all, and Paris 2024 is no different. We have worked hard with the organising committee to ensure affordable and family-friendly prices for world-class sport in absolutely stunning and iconic venues.”

The closest the Paralympic Games has come to selling out was London 2012, where 2.72 million tickets were sold, which equated to 95% capacity.

Tokyo 2020 would have likely been the first Paralympic Games to sell out after there were 3.1 million requests for tickets in the first few months of sales. However, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in no fans being in attendance, with the Games also being pushed back to 2021.

“The Paralympic Games are one of the world’s few mega sport events that you can afford to attend with all your friends and family; it’s what makes the atmosphere at the Games so unique and special for everyone who attends,” said Parsons.

“Over the last decade we have witnessed a dramatic improvement in athletic performance across all 22 sports, while the depth of talent and level of competition has never been better. In terms of sport performance there is no doubt that Paris 2024 will be the best Paralympic Games ever.

Parsons added “As with every Games, we hope we can sell every single ticket to spectators once they go on-sale on 9 October. With world-class sport, stunning venues, and affordable tickets we aim to achieve this goal.”
