Paralympic ticketing off to a good start

Ticketing for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games opened on Monday, October 9, and seems to be off to a good start. As Tony Estanguet, President of the OCOG, explained in Mumbai, where the 141st IOC Session has been taking place since Sunday October 15: “In the first few days, we have sold tickets for all sports and all sessions, including international ones.” Several sessions are already almost sold out, notably fencing and triathlon. Tony Estanguet did not give any figures on the start of sales, but assured us that the discovery pass was a great success. As a reminder, for the single price of 24 euros, this new formula at the Paralympic Games enables participants to attend several sessions in two geographical areas: central Paris (3 to 7 sessions) for cecifoot, archery, taekwondo, wheelchair rugby, judo and fencing; and southern Paris (6 or 7 sessions) for boccia, goalball and table tennis at Porte de Versailles.
