Australian sports fans hoping to secure tickets for the Paris 2024 Olympics could get a head start on the Games ticketing program by registering early to become an official Games member.
The organizers of the Games have created the Club Paris 2024, whose members will have the opportunity to gain priority access to the opening of sales, as well as to receive regular updates from Paris 2024.
Australian fans can sign up for Club Paris 2024 immediately and free of charge, well before the start of the ballot.
Under a new system, tickets will be allocated via a global ballot.
First, fans must register to vote – Monday, December 22, 2022 is the opening day for registration.
Then, a series of ballots will take place. The first in February 2023, then in May 2023 and finally all remaining tickets will go on sale at the end of 2023.
However, the Club Paris 2024 program offers fans who become members the chance to earn a benefit once the process kicks off in December.
AOC chief executive Matt Carroll said that with the Games less than two years away, the Club Paris 2024 program offers Australian fans the opportunity to receive tickets and keep them informed of key dates and activities.
“Due to the pandemic, it was disappointing that fans couldn’t travel to Tokyo to support the athletes and enjoy the Olympic experience. Paris will be different and something quite special for Australian athletes and fans to looking for this unique experience.
“The idea of Club Paris is to increase the chances of fans receiving tickets, and to ensure that you stay fully informed of all Paris 2024 between now and the Games.
“In Paris and elsewhere in France, emblematic places will host the greatest athletes in the world. Our beach volleyball players will compete under the Eiffel Tower, equestrian events in Versailles, sailing in Marseille on the Mediterranean, not to mention an Opening Ceremony with athletes traveling by boat on the Seine.
“Paris 2024 will be unique and tickets will be highly sought after. Most importantly, our athletes will thrive on the support of Australians in the stands at all events,” concluded Mr Carroll.
The Club Paris 2024 is now online and accepting members. Further updates on how the ticketing process and priority access will work will be provided by Club Paris 2024 directly to their members.
