No break for the Paris 2024 OCOG. The day after the date marking D – 500 days before the opening of the Paralympic Games, the second phase of ticketing is launched this Wednesday, March 15. Like the first one, opened on February 15 for a period of three weeks, it begins with a draw. It will end on April 11 at 6:00 pm French time. But this time, those who are drawn will be able to buy tickets individually, and not in packs of three, a formula that has been criticized for its complexity and the prices charged. No less than 1.5 million tickets will be put on sale from May 11, 2023. They will concern all sports and all sessions, including the most coveted, plus the two ceremonies. Buyers will be limited to a maximum of 30 seats per person, deducting tickets already purchased during the first sales phase. According to the OCOG, about 10% of the seats will be offered at the entrance price of 24 euros. For the rest, it will cost up to 980 euros for the most expected final sessions (athletics, swimming, basketball), and up to 2,700 euros for the opening ceremony. A third phase is planned for the end of the year, but it will not be preceded by a draw. It should put on the market a little more than 3 million tickets. Finally, a resale platform will be put online in the second quarter of 2024, with tickets to be sold at their initial price.
