As spectators from abroad are not allowed to attend Tokyo Summer Olympics, those who will be lucky enough to spend the summer 2021 in Paris will still be able to share a convivial moment with other fans of sports in the Fan Zone specifically set in the Trocadero gardens in Paris from July 23 to August 8, 2021.
To inaugurate the event, an opening ceremony hosted by chef Thierry Marx alongside TV host Eglantine Emeyé on Friday July 23, 2021. Even though the two Frenchies will be lucky to present this ceremony from the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, it will be aired on France Télévisions and in the Fan Zone as well.
Furthermore, during the 2021 edition of Paris Plages – scheduled from July 17 to September 13 – the Trocadero turns into a giant sporting complex with many sporting entertainments for the entire family. In addition to air the Olympics non-stop, many sporting entertainments will be provided.
Last but not least, the Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games (OCOG) stated this Tuesday June 1 a closing ceremony will be held on August 8, 2021 in this very Fan Zone. The occasion for France to welcome the Olympic flag in town since Paris is the next city hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics.
