Porte de la Chapelle Arena

Built in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, in the Porte de la Chapelle district, the Porte de la Chapelle Arena (or Adidas Arena) is an eco-designed venue that has been hosting various sporting and cultural events since February 2024. The Porte de la Chapelle Arena will be the location for badminton, rhythmic gymnastics, Para badminton and Para weightlifting competitions.

Aquatics Centre

The Olympic Aquatics Centre in Saint-Denis, connected to the Stade de France opposite, is a low-carbon sports facility. Its Olympic pool is the centrepiece of the diving, water polo and artistic swimming competitions.

Climbing venue at Le Bourget

This sports complex, inaugurated this year as part of the renovation of the sports park at Le Bourget in Seine-Saint-Denis, will host the Olympic climbing events. Five climbing walls, one indoor and four outdoor, are being built on a site that will be a legacy for the department.

The Olympic and Paralympic Village

The Olympic and Paralympic Village is designed to accommodate thousands of athletes, who will be housed near the Stade de France and the Olympic swimming pool, but also to make Paris 2024 a long-term innovative ecological and social project. The huge 52-hectare site is spread over three municipalities: Saint-Denis, Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine and Île-Saint-Denis. The ultimate aim is to make the site fully habitable, low-carbon, biodiversity-friendly and accessible to people with disabilities after the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Grand Palais

Right in the heart of Paris, the Grand Palais will host fencing and taekwondo competitions during the Olympic Games, as well as Para taekwondo and wheelchair fencing competitions during the Paralympic Games. With a long history dating back to the Exposition Universelle in 1900, this outstanding building in the 8th arrondissement will be a showcase for Paris 2024 with its grandiose architectural setting.

Hôtel de Ville (Paris City Hall)

An emblematic place in the 4th arrondissement, steeped in history since its creation in 1357, the Hôtel de Ville and its square welcome athletes in the running competition. The square in front of the Hôtel de Ville is the starting point for the 42.195-kilometre Olympic Marathon and Marathon pour Tous.

Bercy Arena

The Bercy Arena (or Accor Arena) is well known for hosting a wide variety of events, including sports, shows and concerts. During the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, this Paris arena will host the basketball, artistic gymnastics and trampoline Olympic events, and the wheelchair basketball Paralympic events.

Stade Roland-Garros

The legendary Stade Roland-Garros, built in 1928 on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne, welcomes three sporting events during the Paris 2024 Games: tennis, **wheelchair tennis ** and boxing. The Philippe-Chatrier, Simonne Mathieu and Annexe courts will be abuzz with the excitement of the Games this summer 2024!

Parc des Princes

The second biggest stadium in France, the Parc des Princes hosts the football competition. A logical choice for a venue which, since its creation in 1972, has hosted a World Cup and a Euro football tournament, and which also has an impressive surface area for concerts.

South Paris Arena - halls 1, 4 and 6

The South Paris Arena is part of Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, a vast complex built in 1923 which every year welcomes 7.5 million visitors at trade shows, trade fairs and trade exhibitions. Halls 1, 4 and 6 are entirely given over to the Paris 2024 Summer Games. A single venue for a wide programme of Olympic - weightlifting, handball, volleyball and table tennis - and Paralympic - goalball, boccia and Para table tennis events.

North Paris Arena

The Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition centre, in Seine-Saint-Denis, becomes the North Paris Arena for the period of Paris 2024. With its nine exhibition halls, it is accessible to a wide public, who will come to applaud the athletes at the boxing, modern pentathlon and sitting volleyball events.

Yves-du-Manoir Stadium

It is no coincidence that the Yves-du-Manoir Stadium, built in Colombes, in the Hauts-de-Seine department, at the beginning of the last century, will host the Olympic hockey event in 2024: it is the only competition venue to host the Olympic Games for the second time, exactly one hundred years after the 1924 Games! It is an example of the sporting heritage that France has built up, but also a symbol of Paris 2024's resolve to give priority to existing venues.

Paris La Défense Arena

With its facade evoking a giant whale, the Paris La Défense Arena in Nanterre, in the Hauts-de-Seine, is hosting the swimming events and the final of the water polo events for the Olympic Games Paris 2024, as well as the Para swimming events for the Paralympics Paris 2024. An ambition made possible by the extra-large proportions of this sporting and cultural arena situated a few steps from La Défense district.

Stade de France

A major venue for football, rugby, and athletics since it was built for the 1998 World Cup, the famous Stade de France has benefited from its status as the largest stadium in France to become the Olympic Stadium for the Paris 2024 Games. Thanks to its versatility, the Saint-Denis venue is the competition venue for the Olympic and Paralympic athletics and Olympic rugby 7 events.

La Courneuve

The Parc Georges Valbon, in Seine-Saint-Denis, is the starting point for the Para marathon, during which the Para-athletes head towards the centre of Paris and the Esplanade des Invalides. Animated for a fortnight during the Olympic Games and three days during the Paralympic Games, it is a key venue for Para-athletics.


The municipality of Clichy-sous-Bois, in Seine-Saint-Denis, will be the starting and finishing point for Para cycling, from 4 to 7 September 2024. It consists of road races, time trials and team relays.

The Vaires-sur-Marne Nautical Stadium

At the Vaires-Torcy leisure complex in Seine-et-Marne, the Vaires-sur-Marne Nautical Stadium has been one of the leading venues for nautical competitions since 2019. With its two courses (150 and 300 metres), as well as a 2,200-metre 2,200m rowing and sprint canoe-kayak course, it is no surprise that this white-water stadium will be hosting the Olympic canoe-kayak sprint and rowing events, the canoe-kayak slalom events in 2024, as well as the Paralympic Para canoe and Para rowing events.

Château de Versailles

The majestic Château de Versailles, in Les Yvelines, is a major tourist destination. The stage is set for several Olympic events with a royal touch, such as equestrian sports and the modern pentathlon, as well as Para equestrian sports.

Colline d’Élancourt

The choice of this venue for the Paris 2024 Games is fully justified by the very nature of the event being contested: Mountain Bike, i.e. the Olympic cross-country mountain bike course. At an altitude of 231 metres,Élancourt Hill in Les Yvelines, is the ideal venue and the highest point in the region! A good opportunity to support the sustainable approach of the Paris 2024 Games, as 95% of the paths used by the athletes were already in place.

Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines Velodrome

Created in 2014, in Montigny-le-Bretonneux, the Vélodrome national de Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines will showcase the track cycling and Para cycling track events. Within the Vélodrome is the BMX stadium, redesigned for the BMX racing events of the 2024 Games.

Golf National

Still at Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, the Golf National has been a fine setting for golf since opening in 1991. Its 139 hectares and 3 golf courses have welcomed some of the world’s best players. Each year, the French Open is held here and in 2018, it hosted the Ryder Cup. Owned by the French Golf Federation, the Golf National meets the challenges of sustainability and heritage preservation of Paris 2024.

…and throughout France

The Paris 2024 Games also encompasses other places in France! Other areas of Metropolitan France will be welcoming the spirit of Olympic sport! The Bordeaux, Nantes, Lyon, Saint-Étienne, Nice and Marseille stadiums will be hosting several football events, and Lille will be hosting the handball and basketball events, with Marseille also putting its nautical expertise to good use for the sailing events. And of course there's the overseas territory, with the Teahupo’o competition venue in Tahiti, for the Olympic surfing competition!

Pont Alexandre III

The Pont Alexandre III was inaugurated at the Exposition Universelle in 1900. This 107-metre-long bridge provides a spectacular setting in which to view the marathon swimming, triathlon, road cycling and Para triathlon events between 27 July and 2 September 2024.


The Esplanade des Invalides, opposite the Hôtel des Invalides in the 7th arrondissement, temporarily lends its magnificent grounds to the archery, road cycling and Para archery events, which promise to be a spectacular sight.
