The Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games will be the biggest event ever organised in France. They will take place in July, August and September 2024. The spectacle taking place during those weeks will go down in history and Paris will be the centre of the world – the world of sport and so much more. The Games are a popular, multicultural festival, a celebration to share with the rest of the world. They represent a new adventure that will embark France on an experience unlike anything it has seen before.

Paris 2024 has taken the opportunity provided by the IOC in the Olympic Agenda 2020 to propose additional sports that will enhance its programme and overall concept. The IOC is keen to set a new standard for inclusive, gender-balanced and youth-centred games. These four sports are easy to take up and participants form communities that are very active on social media. Over the next five years, the inclusion of these events in the Olympic Games will help inspire millions of children to take up sport. The IOC will make its final decision on the integration of new sports for the Olympic Games Paris 2024 in December 2020.
