Arena II Porte de la Chapelle: a new multi-sports hall designed for the Games and beyond
The Arena II Porte de la Chapelle, the future multi-sports hall, will be able to seat nearly 8,000 spectators for major sporting events, but will also be able to accommodate different audiences and activities, whether sporting or cultural, thanks to its modular design. This very comprehensive and multifunctional space is part of a larger redevelopment project, which aims to restore vitality to this northern Parisian district.
From Colombes to du Manoir: the rise of an Olympic stadium
The Colombes stadium, now known as Yves-du-Manoir, is an iconic landmark of 20th century French sports. The facility was not originally meant to play such an important role in the history of French sport. But over the years, circumstances have conspired to turn Colombes into a legend.
The Olympic Aquatics Centre
Along with the Athletes' Village, the Olympic Aquatics Centre, on which construction starts in September 2021, is one of the flagship facilities of the Paris 2024 Games and their legacy. Awaited by France for more than 10 years, this centre is the embodiment of a major aquatic facility capable of hosting international competitions. In keeping with SOLIDEO's ambitions, the building has architectural and environmental qualities that make it globally unique.

Do you have questions?
When was Paris awarded the organisation of the Olympic and Paralympic Games 2024?
The City of Paris made its application for the organisation of the Olympic and Paralympic Games 2024 official on 23 June 2015. In September 2017, the International Olympic Committee (ICO) decided to award the 2024 and 2028 Games at the same time: to Paris and Los Angeles, ensuring that each would organise an edition of the Games.
The last games organised by Paris were held in 1924. It was also during that year that the first modern Olympic Village (used to accommodate the athletes and providing a high level of comfort for the time) was built, in Colombes, with the vision of Pierre de Coubertin.
What are the dates on which the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place?
The Olympic Games will take place from 26 July to 11 August 2024, and the Paralympic Games from 28 August to 8 September 2024.
SOLIDEO, the Paris 2024 Organising Committee: “who is doing what” in the context of the Olympic and Paralympic Games?
SOLIDEO is the public body responsible for delivering the Olympic and Paralympic infrastructures (constructions and renovations), which will remain after the Games. It is therefore not responsible for any temporary structures. There are 58 Olympic and Paralympic projects under its supervision. Several of them are under SOLIDEO’s direct management: the Olympic and Paralympic Village and the Media Cluster urban development zones, as well as several public facilities.
The Paris 2024 Organisation Committee has the mission of planning, organising, financing and delivering the Games, in accordance with the host city contract signed between the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the French Sports Organisation (CNOSF) and the City of Paris. Paris 2024 is thus in charge of temporary facilities.
