Today, Edouard Philippe (French Prime Minister), Anne Hidalgo (President of SOLIDEO – Mayor of Paris) and Tony Estanguet (President of Paris 2024) have signed a joint funding protocol for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Read the following press release from Paris in 2024 for more information on this agreement and the provisions for the Aquatics Centre and the Olympic Village.
A few days ahead of the IOC Coordination Commission’s first visit to Paris, French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, Anne Hidalgo, President of SOLIDEO and Mayor of Paris, and Tony Estanguet, President of Paris 2024, have signed the joint funding protocol for the Paris 2024 Games in the company of all key stakeholders. The protocol guarantees that proposed budgets will be
scrupulously respected; reinforces the “legacy” aspect of the project with its focus on delivering benefits to communities; and enables the optimisation of the Games plan, in order to further improve the experience of every participant group.
On September 13 2017, Paris was elected Host City for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. France and Paris achieved this victory based on an ambitious bid – both in terms of the sports plan, and in the physical and social legacy to be generated for people in the host communities. Its success also relied on demonstrating a commitment to budgetary sobriety, in order to ensure that each Euro spent will deliver maximum value and benefit to French people.
Once the victory had been achieved, and in line with their commitments, the Paris 2024 Committee, the French State and the City of Paris immediately began a process to consolidate the Games
masterplan, in particular to take account of IOC feedback and its “New Norm” and Olympic Agenda 2020 recommendations, while also taking care to respect the International Federations’ expectations.
The collective work to optimise the Olympic and Paralympic project has been driven by the Paris 2024 Committee, presided by Tony Estanguet, and SOLIDEO, presided by Anne Hidalgo, in close
consultation with the State, the various local authorities and lead developers.
This foundation work is just the first step in a process that will continue over coming months, with the involvement all key stakeholders, and especially the national and international sports federations. The aim is to deliver a final masterplan that is optimised for all stakeholders in the Games, based on three core pillars that underpin Paris 2024’s strength:
– An exceptional concept, further improved for an even better athlete experience
– A strong and certain legacy for all stakeholders in the Games
– Controlled costs, in line with commitments made during the bid phase
This morning, following the Executive Board meetings of Paris 2024 and SOLIDEO, Edouard Philippe, France’s Prime Minister – accompanied by Sports Minister Laura Flessel and Sophie Cluzel, the Prime Minister’s Secretary of State with responsibility for disabled people – Anne Hidalgo, President of SOLIDEO and Mayor of Paris, and Tony Estanguet, Président de Paris 2024, officially signed the joint funding protocol for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in the company of other key stakeholders in the Games – representatives of the sports movement and authorities affected by Games-related investments.
In particular, the protocol makes the following provisions:
· The Olympic Aquatics Centre will remain a permanent facility, but with a redefined concept to help control costs, while also delivering a stronger legacy for local residents and, in particular, the children of Seine-Saint-Denis. The Games project will ultimately lead to the creation of eight legacy pools, in place of the five originally planned. They will help to meet a real need in a department with a significant shortage of community sports facilities, and where only half of children leave primary school able to swim. This significant and meaningful legacy can be comfortably accommodated within the Games budget. To enable it, Paris 2024 will increase its financial contribution to the project by more than 40 million Euros compared to its bid-phase provision.
· The Athletes’ Village will be maintained in its proposed location and according to existing plans. Legacy benefits of real value to the local area and its residents are expected to include: the undergrounding of power lines; new housing; the creation of new green spaces; and the building of an anti-noise wall.

Title Risques De Délais Et De Coûts Concernant Certaines Opérations Majeures Prévues Pour Les Jeux Olympiques Et Paralympiques 2024 (Translation: Risk Of Time And Costs Relating To Certain Major Operations Planned For The Olympic And Paralympic Games 2024)
Date March 2018
Press release by Paris 2024;
The Paris 2024 Olympic Games will take place from 26 July to 11 August. The Paris 2024 Paralympic Games will take place from 28 August to 8 September.
The Olympic and Paralympic competitions in Paris will therefore take place a week earlier than originally proposed.
This change, which will become official after approval by the International Federations, came in response to the willingness of the IOC, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and Paris 2024 to facilitate the organisation of the competitions and offer the best possible exposure to the Paralympic Games, whose first half will now take place during the period of school holidays.
During the visit of the Evaluation Commission in May 2017, the IOC and the IPC had expressed reservations about the originally proposed calendar, especially in regards to the 8-15 September timeframe, the second week of the Paralympic Games.
In close collaboration with its stakeholders and government agencies, Paris 2024 conducted a comprehensive study on the impact of a change in dates, addressing all operational aspects (transportation, security, spectator experience, logistics, etc).
The study, which proposed to advance the Games by one week, was welcomed by the IPC as well as the IOC, who approved it during its Executive Board meeting in PyeongChang
