The 2024 Olympic Games

The 2nd major event mentioned above has not been held in France since 1924. So after 1 century, the Olympic Games will be making their return to our country. From 26 July to 15 August 2024 for the Olympic Games and from 28 August to 8 September 2024 for the Paralympic Games, Paris and, above all, the entire Saint-Etienne metropolitan area will be decked out in the colours of the Olympic Games.

Yes, once again it’s the Geoffroy Guichard stadium that will be in the spotlight. This lucky youngster has been selected by the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games Organising Committee and will see its pitch trodden by the world’s greatest teams. Saint-Étienne, like its sister cities (Lyon, Paris, Marseille, Bordeaux and Nantes), will host the men’s and women’s football tournaments. So yes, we don’t yet know which ones and on what dates, but there’s no doubt that the St Etienne fans will be in a frenzy.

As we await the arrival of this not-to-be-missed event, the whole of the Saint-Etienne metropolitan area is abuzz with excitement and preparing for its arrival. And just as well, because with the Paris 2024 Land of the Games label, a whole host of activities can be organised. In fact, to keep the most impatient among us entertained until the summer of 2024, we invite you to discover some of the activities available free of charge as part of Explore Terre de Jeux. New activities and events will be added every year, so be sure to check this section regularly!

Furthermore, several sports facilities in the Metropolis are in the running to become training centers in preparation for the 2024 Olympics. So, keep your eyes open; maybe you’ll come across one of the athletes around a street corner or in a park.

I don’t know about you, but on our side, whether it’s for the 2023 Rugby World Cup or the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we can’t wait to join the celebration!
