The 2024 Summer Olympics (French : Jeux olympiques d'été de 2024), officially known as the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad (French : Jeux de la XXXIIIe Olympiade), and commonly known as Paris 2024, is a forthcoming international multi-sport event that is scheduled to take place from 26 July to 11 August 2024 in Paris, France.
Having previously played host in 1900 and 1924, Paris will become the second city to host the Olympics three times, after London (1908, 1948 and 2012). 2024 will mark the centenary of the Paris Games of 1924 and the sixth Olympic Games hosted by France (three in summer and three in winter).
The bidding process for these Games began in 2015. Five cities submitted their candidature, but Hamburg, Rome and Budapest withdrew, leaving only Paris and Los Angeles in contention. A proposal to elect the 2024 and 2028 Olympic host cities concurrently was approved by an Extraordinary IOC Session on 11 July 2017 in Lausanne.On 31 July 2017, the IOC negotiated a deal that would see Paris host the Games in 2024 and Los Angeles four years later. The formal announcement of this decision took place at the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on 13 September 2017.
Paris, Hamburg, Budapest, Rome, and Los Angeles were the five candidate cities. However, the process was hit by withdrawals, with political uncertainty and cost cited as deterring bidding cities.Hamburg withdrew its bid on 29 November 2015 after holding a referendum. Rome withdrew on 21 September 2016 citing fiscal difficulties. On 22 February 2017, Budapest withdrew after a petition against the bid collected more signatures than necessary for a referendum.
Following these withdrawals, the IOC Executive Board met in Lausanne, Switzerland to discuss the 2024 and 2028 bid processes on 9 June 2017.The International Olympic Committee formally proposed electing the 2024 and 2028 Olympic host cities at the same time in 2017, a proposal which an Extraordinary IOC Session approved on 11 July 2017 in Lausanne. The IOC set up a process whereby the LA 2024 and Paris 2024 bid committees met with the IOC to discuss who would host the Games in 2024 and 2028, and whether it was possible to select the host cities for both at the same time.
Following the decision to award the two Games simultaneously, Paris was understood as the preferred host for 2024. On 31 July 2017, the IOC announced Los Angeles as the sole candidate for 2028, enabling Paris to be confirmed as host for 2024. Both decisions were ratified at the 131st IOC Session on 13 September 2017.
Paris was elected as the host city on 13 September 2017 at the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru. The two French IOC members, Guy Drut and Tony Estanguet, were ineligible to vote under the rules of the Olympic Charter.
In 2004, the IOC established the concept of Olympics including 28 sports: 25 permanent 'core' sports with three additional sports selected for each individual Games. On 8 September 2013, IOC added wrestling to the Olympic programme for the 2020 and 2024 Games, representing one of these additional sports.FILA (now known as United World Wrestling) changed freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling weight classes for men and decreased to six categories in order to add more weights for women. However, in August 2016, the IOC added five sports to the 2020 Olympics, with plans separately to evaluate the existing 28 sports. During the 131st IOC Session in September 2017, the IOC approved the 28 sports of the Rio 2016 program for Paris 2024, while also inviting the Paris Organising Committee to submit up to five additional sports for consideration.
In August 2017, the organising committee announced that it would hold talks with the IOC and professional esports organisations about the possibility of introducing competitive video gaming in 2024.However, in July 2018, the IOC confirmed that it would not consider esports for the 2024 Olympics. Effectively, Breaking has been added to the 2020 program, and baseball, softball and karate have been lost.
On 21 February 2019, the Paris Organising Committee announced they would propose breaking as a new sport, along with surfing, sport climbing, and skateboarding, which will debut at the 2020 Summer Olympics.In June, breakdancing was approved. At the 134th IOC Session in Lausanne, Switzerland, IOC members approved all four sports for inclusion for 2024, subject to final approval by the IOC Executive Board 7 December 2020. The board confirmed all four sports.
The 2024 Summer Olympic program is scheduled to feature 32 sports encompassing 329 events. The number of events in each discipline is noted in parentheses.
Most of the Olympic events will be held in and around Paris, including the suburbs of Saint-Denis, Le Bourget, Nanterre, Versailles, and Vaires-sur-Marne which is just outside the city environs. The handball competitions will take place at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille, while the sailing and surfing events will be held in the remote coastal resorts of Marseille and Teahupo'o respectively. Football will be hosted in 7 cities around France.

On 9 December 2019, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) banned Russia from all international sport for four years, after it found that the Russian government had tampered with lab data that it provided to WADA in January 2019 as a condition of its reinstatement of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency. As at the 2018 Winter Olympics, WADA will allow individual cleared Russian athletes to compete neutrally under a title to be determined. WADA Compliance Review Committee head Jonathan Taylor stated that the IOC would not be able to use "Olympic Athletes from Russia" (OAR) as it did in 2018, specifically emphasizing that neutral athletes are to not to be portrayed as representing Russia.
The emblem for the 2024 Summer Olympics and Paralympics was unveiled on 21 October 2019 at the Grand Rex. Inspired by Art Deco,it is a representation of Marianne, the national personification of France, with a flame formed in negative space by her hair. The emblem also resembles a gold medal. Tony Estanguet explained that the emblem symbolised "the power and the magic of the Games", and the Games being "for people". The use of a female figure also serves as an homage to the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris, which were the first to allow women to participate. The emblem was designed by the French designer Sylvain Boyer with the French design agencies Ecobranding & Royalties.
The emblem for Paris 2024 was considering as the biggest new logo release of 2019 by many design magazines.An Opinion Way survey shows that 83 per cent of French people say they like the new Paris 2024 Games emblem. Approval ratings were high, with 82 per cent finding it aesthetically appealing and 78 per cent creative.
It was, however, met with some mockery on social media, with some commenting that the logo "would be better suited to a dating site or a hair salon".
For the first time, the 2024 Summer Paralympics will share the same logo as their corresponding Olympics with no difference, reflecting a shared "ambition" between both events.

In February 2019, a French feminist group called on the organisers of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris to ban the hijab and other items of Islamic clothing during the Games, to ensure female Muslim athletes can compete free from religious restrictions. Annie Sugier, a prominent member of the group, highlighted that the Olympic Charter states no kind of "religious propaganda" is permitted in any Olympic sites, venues or other areas.In 2010, the French government passed a law banning full face veils such as the niqab in public, imposing fines upon anybody who breaks the law. The law caused significant controversy and was challenged at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), which upheld the ban in 2014. In contrast to the ECHR ruling, in October 2018, the United Nations Human Rights Council declared the law a violation of human rights that risked confining Muslim women to their homes.
In France, domestic rights to the 2024 Summer Olympics are owned by Discovery Inc. via Eurosport, with free-to-air coverage sub-licensed to the country's public broadcaster France Télévisions.
These will be the final Olympics to be broadcast by SBS in North and South Korea, with JTBC assuming broadcast rights beginning with the 2026 Winter Olympics.

The bidding race was eventually won by the London 2012 bid after a 54–50 vote of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 6 July 2005. The French capital's failure to win the 2012 games follows the attempts of the Paris 2008 and Paris 1992 bids.

It is the responsibility of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to approve Olympic emblems for the Olympic games. The Olympic emblems are used in promotional materials, by sponsors of the Olympics, on the uniforms of every Olympic competitor. All emblems are the property of the IOC.
