With just around couple of years| to go for the opening ceremony of the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, organisers have revealed “Ouvrons Grand Les Jeux”, meaning “Games Wide Open”, as the shared slogan for the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“It is an invitation to the world to come and experience new emotions together. Our Games are the commitments of new experiences and big thrills,” the organisers said on Monday evening.
Notably, Paris will host the Summer Olympics for the third time in 2024, which also marks the centenary of the last Paris Games in 1924. The French capital was also the host city of the second edition of the modern Olympic Games, in 1900.
The Games is scheduled to be held between July 26 and August 11. A total of 32 sporting disciplines will be witnessed at the showpiece event.
A provisional calendar of the Games was also released on Monday as the first competition session starts on July 24, 2024, two days before the opening ceremony. Notably, all the finals of the swimming and athletics events will take place in the evenings, from 20:30 for swimming (with the exception of the last day from 18:30), and from 19:00 for athletics.
“These prices, which are extremely affordable for an event the size of the Olympic Games, have been made possible thanks to the adoption of a special pricing structure: the high-price tickets, which make up 15 per cent of the tickets on sale to the general public, will generate almost 50 per cent of Paris 2024 ticketing revenue,” the organisers said in a statement.
