The organizing committee of the 2024 Paris Olympics released the Seine River as the stage for the opening ceremony of the event this Tuesday (13th), with a series of graphic projections.

According to the organizers, for the first time the opening will not take place in a stadium, but on a six-kilometer route along the Seine, one of the main tourist attractions in France, between the Pont d’Austerlitz and the Pont d’léna , on July 26, 2024.

With less than 1,000 days before the start of the Games, the expectation is to receive more than 600,000 people at the opening ceremony, which will feature eighty big screens and speakers. That number is tens of times higher than what would be possible in a stadium, making the opening event in Paris the biggest in history.

Traditionally, delegations bring the flags of each country into the main stadium of the competition. This time, the teams will navigate the River Seine by boat. More than 10,000 athletes are expected to participate in the ceremony.

According to the organizers, more than 1 billion people are expected to attend the opening, which will feature 160 boats and 120 heads of state.
