Final month International Athletics president, Lord Sebastian Coe – who used to be chair of the London 2012 setting up committee – mentioned he used to be involved, exterior price tag costs for Paris 2024 could also be too prime, stating that some had been the most costly ever noticed at an Olympics, and that complete stadiums had been very important.
Multiple million tickets for the soccer event stay unsold, however Thobois defended the hosts’ manner.
“Now we have already bought 90% of the tickets so we are comfy in the truth that we in truth priced it proper,” he mentioned.
“Now we have had multiple million tickets at 24 euros. Greater than 4 million tickets are 50 euros or much less.
“So, it is been an out of this world good fortune and we are roughly promoting out. Athletics, which is expensive to Lord Coe, will probably be a complete stadium.”
