Eurostar Group has announced that it will serve as the official travel partner of Team GB for the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris.
This exciting partnership will ensure smooth and efficient travel for British athletes as they journey to the French capital for the Games, scheduled to take place from 26th July to 11th August 2024.
Eurostar will play a pivotal role in transporting Team GB athletes to and from Paris on a daily basis throughout the duration of the Olympic Games.
With its direct train connections between London and Paris, Eurostar offers a convenient and comfortable mode of travel for athletes, allowing them to focus on their preparations for the competitions ahead.
Expressing his enthusiasm about the collaboration, Andy Anson OBE, CEO of Team GB, stated, “The British Olympic Association (BOA) is thrilled to welcome Eurostar Group as our official travel partner.
Our priority is always to optimize performance, and this partnership ensures that our Olympians will benefit from the excellent service, flexibility, and comfort that Eurostar Group consistently provides. We extend a warm welcome to Eurostar Group and eagerly anticipate our fruitful collaboration.”
Gwendoline Cazenave, CEO of Eurostar Group, shared her excitement, saying, “As we gear up to host these historic moments in Paris 2024, we are delighted to support British Olympians by offering them the most sustainable travel option between London and Paris.
The Paris Games are set to be the greenest ever, and Eurostar Group is proud to contribute to reducing Team GB’s carbon footprint during their journey to the Continent.
We, at Eurostar Group, take pride in ‘taking the team to victory’ and this partnership inspires all of us to give our very best.”
Eurostar Group, formed through the merger of Eurostar and Thalys, is dedicated to promoting sustainable travel across Europe.
The company is committed to serving as the backbone of eco-friendly transportation and is honoured to support Team GB in their efforts to minimize their environmental impact while travelling to and from the Olympic Games in Paris.
It’s worth noting that Eurostar previously served as the official transport provider for French and Belgian athletes during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
In line with this tradition, Eurostar will continue to facilitate transportation for Belgian and Dutch Olympians and Paralympians to Paris later this year, further solidifying their commitment to supporting international athletes.
As Team GB and Eurostar Group join forces for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, both organizations are poised to deliver a seamless travel experience, ensuring that British athletes arrive at their destination primed and ready to compete on the world’s greatest sporting stage.
