Tens of thousands of new Paris 2024 tickets will be released every Thursday through a new sales campaign.

Paris 2024 organisers said ‘Ticketing Thursdays’ tickets will run each week until the start of the Olympic Games in late July. Some of the tickets come from places that had been allocated on a quota basis, pending the finalisation of the capacity of the various competition venues. Others come from places that had been reserved for various stakeholders involved in the Games.

Some 40,000 tickets will be released in the inaugural edition on May 30 from 10am. These include 30,000 in sports or category seats that are currently sold out. Tickets will be on sale across artistic gymnastics, rugby sevens, beach volleyball, basketball, boxing and many more sports.

Organisers said: “Tickets for the evening athletics finals will start at €85, and you can watch the French rugby sevens team at the Stade de France from €90, attend beach volleyball sessions at the foot of the Eiffel Tower from €24, or cheer on the French women’s basketball team in Lille (France v Canada, for example) from €50, or the French women’s football team in Lyon (France v Colombia) from €30.”

The official Paris 2024 ticketing app launched last week, with users now able to resell and manage their tickets.

The app, available on all smartphones, will be the only way that fans can gain entry to Paris 2024 venues when the Olympic Games get underway in July. More than nine million tickets have already been sold for the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
