With thirty-two venues, the present proposal utilises lay-out leverages on the
optimisation of nineteen existing sites, including: Stade de France®, Roland Garros,
the Longchamp and Auteuil racecourses, the Vaires-sur-Marne basin and the 1900
Olympic venue Croix Catelan.
The football stadiums in provincial cities all hosted the Football World Cup
in 1998 and so offer guaranteed high-quality facilities (in accordance with FIFA
Seven of the thirteen additional venues will be temporary.
The Ile-de-France region will enjoy the post-Olympic heritage listed below:
• the Aquatics Centre,
• the “SuperDome”,
• the Velodrome,
• the Shooting Centre.
Moreover, the Olympic requirements will enrich an already ambitious project of
expanding the Roland Garros stadium.
These venues will meet needs that have been clearly identified by sports organisations
and local authorities.
The crowd capacity will be reduced after the Games to ensure their long-term
post-Olympic use and operation.
