The Olympic Seine - Paris 2024 Opening Ceremony
En 2024, la cérémonie d’ouverture des Jeux Olympiques de 2024 s’annonce audacieuse, originale et unique, elle marquera l’Histoire olympique de grandes premières.
For the first time in the history of the Summer Olympic Games, the ceremony will not be taking place in a stadium. Paris 2024 is breaking new ground in sports competition by bringing sports out into the city and the same will be true for the opening ceremony, which will be held in the heart of the city, along its main artery, the Seine.
Holding a ceremony open to a very large audience, with no admission fee for most of its spectators, is a major first. Spectators will not need tickets to access the upper quays. Spectators wishing to access the lower quays, from the Austerlitz bridge to the Iéna bridge, will need to purchase tickets.
At least 600,000 spectators will be able to attend the festivities, ten times more than in an Olympic stadium. Eighty giant screens and strategically placed speakers will allow everyone to enjoy the magical atmosphere of this show reverberating throughout the French capital.
The opening ceremony for the Paris 2024 Summer Olympics will be the largest ever held in the history of the Games. It will be open to all: local residents from Paris and its region, along with visitors from all over France and around the world.
