Registration fees

Registration fees consist of two elements to be added:

  1. a mandatory base registration fee,
  2. a variable fee depending on the chosen sporting or cultural events.

Base registration fees include:

  • your participation and full experience of the Opening Ceremony,
  • your ticket for the closing ceremony,
  • your Official PARIS 2018 GAY GAMES 10 Participation Medal,
  • your access to the Accreditation center, to the Village of the Gay Games, and to main sporting venues,
  • your transportation pass (Paris metro, bus and RER train) in the whole Région of Paris and Ile-de-France (5 zones) if you don’t live in the area,
  • the Official Program Book,
  • your Welcome Bag,
  • some promotional offers.

The fee for chosen sporting or cultural event depends on the organizing costs of each event.

The next 1,500 registrations before 31 March 2017 are at “Blue Supporter” base rate of 145 € (110 € for Francilians). Note bene: 145 € ~154 US$ ~ 127 £ as of 13 January 2017

Registration costs will increase on a regular basis depending on the period of registration and enrollment. For the opening of the registrations, the first registrations made before 13 June 2016 were at the “Very Early Bird” base rate of 120 € (85 € for Francilians). Registrations will be closed on 30 June 2018.

So the earlier one registers, the lower the cost. Note that costs paid by participants have been calculated to represent less than a quarter of the budget of the global event. Your contribution is necessary to make this unique event a success. This is a concrete way to support our values.

Paris encourages participants to register early for three reasons:

  1. First registered, first served: all activities have a limited number of capacity. To be sure to participate in your activity, you should register as early as possible
  2. Planning: Paris 2018 will have more time to plan all events according to your wishes and you will have more time to prepare your travel and accommodation
  3. Economic: You will take advantage of better prices for registrations but also for your travel and accommodation thanks to our special deal with our official travel agency KTS France and misterb&b and show your support to Paris 2018 – Gay Games 10.

To fund your individual participation or your team, you can also search for private partners launch crowdfunding campaigns or raise funds.

For its part, PARIS 2018 GAY GAMES 10 with the Foundation Inclusion Paris 2018 and in conjunction with the Federation of Gay Games is looking for sponsors to distribute scholarships to the most deprived persons. It will be possible to enlist the help of PARIS 2018 from August 2016. Participants can also show solidarity and make an additional donation to allow the participation of people worldwide.

Accessibility

Paris 2018 is committed to offer a place for everyone. Universal accessibility is a guiding principle to open the event to the largest number of people. To answer the desires of athletes, artists and public with disabilities, an effort was made on the information: accessibility to the competitions and the venues, pictograms, links to Paris’ s accessibility information.

Some events are specially organized to be open to people with disabilities. Specific pictograms are present on the program to indicate the participation’s possibilities. It’s not a definitive list. We listen to you with the emails: support.sports@paris2018.com or support.culture@paris2018.com.

We learn from each other, so don’t hesitate to share with us your ideas and propositions to be part of Paris 2018 no matter your disability.
