Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games
The Olympic and Paralympic Games are the largest international sporting event. Paris was honored to be selected for the 2024 edition. This event will impact the area with a strong presence in the departments of Seine-et-Marne and Seine-Saint-Denis.
Seine-Saint-Denis is at the heart of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (JOP) 2024. A large part of the infrastructure will be located there. Most of them were planned before the games and benefited from the momentum generated by this event to become true.
Out of the overall budget of €3.2 billion dedicated to infrastructure investments, Seine-Saint-Denis will benefit from €2 billion. This financing will benefit the construction of several projects:
- The Olympic Village, which will host 10,500 athletes. It will be located in L’Ile-Saint-Denis, Saint Denis and Saint Ouen. The area will then be transformed to accommodate housing, a gymnasium, green spaces, and offices and local shops;
- The Olympic Aquatic Centre in Saint Denis will host water-polo, diving and synchronized swimming;
- The Official training pool in La Courneuve;
- The Olympic shooting range, mounted on the «terrain des essences» located between La Courneuve and Dugny;
- The Media Village in Dugny in order to house journalists and technicians with 600 to 700 housing units. This village, served by the tramway and the future lines of the Grand Paris Express will then be transformed into a city district;
- The Press village as the nerve centre of all international media: TV sets, technical sets, will be located in Le Bourget;
- A site equipped to host climbing events in Le Bourget sector;
- PRISME, an establishment that will include a gymnasium and an athletics track dedicated to the Paralympics, in Bobigny.
Beyond these new spaces, the Stade de France, located in Saint Denis, will host the opening event of the games, the athletics and rugby events. The Seine Saint-Denis department will therefore host a large part of the events and infrastructures of the 2024 JOP.
For its part, the department of Seine-et-Marne will host the rowing and canoeing events, on the regional nautical base of Vaires-sur-Marne. The development project represents 75 million euros for the department.

Infrastructure projects have been studied to serve the long-term. On the employment side, 150,000 jobs are expected to be mobilized in three main sectors: Construction, Tourism, Organization. 10% of the working hours during the construction phases of the works will be reserved for an integrating public and 25% of the markets will be accessible to SMEs and actors of the Social and Solidarity Economy.
