For those who prefer a traditional experience, purchasing tickets is the most straightforward route. The official website for the Paris 2024 Olympics provides detailed information on ticket categories, prices, and the schedule of events.

Each event ticket price is different. To experience events like basketball, football, golf, rugby sevens, and shooting, the cheapest ticket price starts at € 24 or $26. Liberia’s main event, athletics, currently has tickets available for € 170 to € 990 ($185 to $1,082).

Whether you’re a die-hard fan of a specific sport or you want to witness the grandeur of the Ceremonies, there’s a ticket option for everyone. Opening Ceremony ticket prices range from € 90 to € 2,700 ($100 to $3,000), while Closing Ceremony tickets cost € 45 to € 1,600 ($50 to $1,750). All prices are based on availability.

If you desire to have an immersive and all-encompassing experience, consider booking travel packages. Authorized Olympic hospitality providers offer several packages to choose from. In addition to event tickets, these packages include accommodation, transportation, and exclusive access to various Olympic-related activities. It’s a hassle-free way to ensure a seamless and enjoyable stay during the Games — but travelers still have to apply for their own visas, which can take anywhere from 15 to 45 days to receive.

Liberians can start applying for their French visas six months before their travel time. The processing typically averages two to three weeks, depending on the time of year.
