Paris 2024: British fans second only to hosts France for tickets bought

Paris 2024: British fans second only to hosts France for tickets bought

Last month World Athletics president, Lord Sebastian Coe – who was chair of the London 2012 organising committee – said he was concerned, external ticket prices for Paris 2024 may be too high, pointing out that some were the most expensive ever seen at an Olympics, and that full stadiums were essential.

More than one million tickets for the football tournament remain unsold, but Thobois defended the hosts’ approach.

“We’ve already sold 90% of the tickets so we’re comfortable in the fact that we actually priced it right,” he said.

“We’ve had more than one million tickets at 24 euros. More than four million tickets are 50 euros or less.

“So, it’s been a fantastic success and we’re more or less selling out. Athletics, which is dear to Lord Coe, will be a full stadium.”
