A scratch card game for athletics tickets

Brand new: a scratch card game to win tickets for the Paris 2024 Games. In a press release, FDJ (la Française des jeux), the official partner of the OCOG, announces the launch of a short-lived game called “Mon Ticket pour Paris 2024” (My Ticket to Paris 2024) from Monday 3 July. It will be available at 30,000 FDJ sales outlets and in digital format at www.fdj.fr. Priced at €3, it will offer two different types of prize. For the first-place winners, there will be nothing very unexpected, as the prize will be monetary and could be as much as €50,000. On the other hand, FDJ is innovating for Row 2, with a so-called “experiential” prize: two tickets to attend the most eagerly awaited athletics events of the Olympic Games, including the finals of the women’s and men’s 4×100 m relay, the women’s 400 m, the men’s triple jump, the women’s 10,000 m and the men’s 400 m hurdles. As an added bonus, Française des Jeux will cover the accommodation, catering and transfer costs of the winners.
