The French Olympic Committee is planning to deploy a blockchain ticketing system for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The committee plans to provide fans with a blockchain ticketing system that will be non-transferable and personalized for the fans.

The committee also recommended enhanced safety protocols to avoid last month’s Champions League Final situation. The 30-page report with the recommendations was submitted to the Prime Minister’s office last week, where there was a great backlash against the organization of the Liverpool and Real Madrid games.

Can Olympics and blockchain go hand in hand?

According to a news publication called the Ticketing Business News, the report was submitted by the interministerial delegate of the French Olympics, Michel Cadot. The report contained the necessary revisions for the 2024 Olympic Games.

The report stated that a personalized and secured ticketing system should be in place for every major sports event to be held in France. The report stressed that blockchain ticketing can provide additional security for fans. The plan suggests implementing non-transferable tickets, which should be sent a few days before the start of the Olympics by the organization.

The ticket can also be registered using a rotating QR code that will be deactivated immediately after the ticket holder has entered the venue. Ticket personalization might also enable ticket holders to get interactive messaging about transportation, security, and venue entry via digital channels.

“These provisions are already planned for the 2023 Rugby World Cup and the Olympics and Paralympics 2024 and practiced by major events such as the French International Tennis,”


Cadot also advocated for the formation of a national commission to oversee important international athletic events. This would “bridge the gap between the worldwide dimension and local management” according to Cadot.

If the amendments turn out to be implemented, it will be a big heads up for blockchain technology. But crypto was utilized previously at the Tokyo Olympics. The winners of the Olympics were rewarded by Bitbns exchange with crypto assets in addition to their medals.
