Paris is transforming itself into a sporting mecca. It will host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games and is already well prepared for such a global event. Here is a list of the venues that are ready to host the city's third Summer Games and some which will benefit from the legacy.
Paris' sporting revolution starts with the Ryder Cup. The prestigious golf tournament will be held on French soil for the first time in 2018, at Le Golf National. The course, opened in 1990, has two 18-hole courses and one nine-hole course.
The Stade de France is the country's national stadium and home of the French football and rugby team. It was built for the 1998 World Cup and is where the Olympic athletics, opening and closing ceremonies will take place.
