One Year To Go !
In one year, the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games will begin with the first Opening Ceremony to be held outside of a stadium and the Athletes’ Parade staged on the most famous avenue in France. France’s first summer Paralympic Games will take place between 28 August and 8 September 2024, featuring 549 medal events across 22 Para sports. About 4,400 athletes from around the world will showcase the best of Para sports in the City of Light. There will be amazing sporting feats, new records and moments that will be remembered forever, taking place at iconic venues like the Chateau de Versailles and the famous red-clay courts at Roland-Garros.
Andrew Parsons, President of the International Paralympic Committe: I’m very excited because now we are entering the last lap of preparation. We are moving in a very important phase because the Paris 2024 Organising Committee is not planning anymore, but implementing what has been planned for years. It’s good to see everything coming to action. We have the Paralympic ticket sales launch on 9 October. It’s also important to promote it and sell it because we want these Games to be seen by every human being in the world.
