, he notably announced the purchase of tickets intended to supply a "popular ticket office".

“The State will buy 400,000 tickets which it will distribute to young people and schoolchildren, especially those under 16, to volunteers who contribute to the Games and to sport in France, to people with disabilities, to their caregivers, and to civil servants of the State and the communities which help with these Games, particularly categories B and C", explained the President of the Republic.
