Paris 2024 has revealed the competition structure for the first time after it was approved by Olympic chiefs.

Hockey will be hosted at the Yves-du-Manoir Stadium in Colombes, where work began on the site in January.

As part of Paris 2024’s plan for greater visibility for all team sports’ finals on the final weekend, the women’s and men’s hockey, handball, football, beach volleyball, volleyball, basketball and water polo finals will be spread out over four days, between Aug 8 and 11.

The hockey finals will take place on Aug 8 and 9, starting at 7pm local time.

Matches will push back from Saturday July 27 in the Ile-de-France region of Paris. Each competition day will see matches start at 10:30am local time, while the latest matches will finish at 10:30pm.

The Olympic competition schedule, event by event, will be unveiled at the end of June. The men and women hockey competitions will each have 12 teams.

Thirty two sports will be on the 19-day programme competition from Wednesday July 24 to Sunday Aug 11.

From the opening day, three team sports will open the Paris competition: handball at the Pierre Mauroy stadium in Lille, rugby at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis and football in the seven cities hosting the men’s and women’s tournaments (Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice and Saint-Etienne).
