Target: 3 million Paralympic tickets

As the symbolic date of 1,000 days before the start of the Paralympic Games approaches on Thursday 2 December, the Paris 2024 OCOG is showing its ambitions. Tony Estanguet, its president, explained to Reuters: 3 million tickets will be sold for the Paralympic events, with the ambition of getting as close as possible to a sold-out event. We are very ambitious in terms of ticketing for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games,” said the head of the Paris 2024 OCOG. I am convinced that this event, which is still often overlooked, can be positioned among the top three sporting events in the world.” To date, the record number of tickets sold for a Paralympic Games belongs to London 2012, when 2.7 million tickets were purchased. Around 9 million tickets will be offered for sale for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
