Triumph And Tradition: Paris 2024 Champ de Mars Arena

The Champ de Mars Arena, a temporary yet monumental venue, will play a pivotal role during the Paris 2024 Games. Known as the Grand Palais Éphémère, this venue serves as an interim location for the events of the Grand Palais while renovations are underway. In 2024, after these renovations are complete, the Arena will temporarily retain its setup to accommodate both Olympic and Paralympic competitions.

Paris 2024 Champ de Mars Arena


Designed by the renowned Jean-Michel Wilmotte, the Champ de Mars Arena showcases a timber structure characterized by elegant curves and aesthetics that echo the historic Grand Palais. Constructed in early 2021, this structure is strategically placed opposite the École Militaire, blending flawlessly into the Parisian cityscape. Its design not only respects but enhances the urban environment, utilizing sustainable materials and adhering to the strict environmental standards set for Paris 2024.

The Champ de Mars Arena is poised to become a focal point for judo and wrestling during the 2024 Olympic Games. These disciplines have historically seen strong performances from countries like Japan and Russia in judo, as well as from the United States in wrestling. The choice of the Champ de Mars Arena as the venue for these sports is strategic. Its central location and modern facilities provide an ideal backdrop for showcasing the intense competition and athleticism of these events, while also enhancing spectator experience with its proximity to other Olympic activities and Parisian attractions.
