LA Reaches Tentative Deal With IOC to Host 2028 Olympics

LA Reaches Tentative Deal With IOC to Host 2028 Olympics”

If the deal is indeed completed, this will be the third time Los Angeles hosts an Olympic games, with the previous two coming in 1932 and 1984.

Los Angeles reached an agreement with the leaders of the International Olympic Committee on plans to host the 2028 Summer Games.

An announcement from the International Olympic Committee was expected later on Monday.

Per David Wharton of the Los Angeles Times, the city of Los Angeles has reached a deal to host the 2028 Summer Olympic Games.

The IOC will ratify the L.A. -Paris agreement September 13 in Lima, Peru. If approved, the IOC, Los Angeles and Paris may enter a three-part agreement, clearing the way for the IOC to simultaneously award the 2024 Games to Paris and the 2028 Games to Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is on its way to being an Olympic city again, this time in 2028. Assuming it clinches the Summer Games for that year, it would mark the centenary of the 1924 Paris Olympics, depicted in the 1981 Oscar-winning motion picture Chariots of Fire.

The IOC said it would make contributions to the Los Angeles organizing committee worth $1.8 billion.

Garcetti said last week that Los Angeles "would be stupid" not to agree to host in 2028. Awarding two separate games to two bidders is an unusual step, but the committee considered both bids to be strong.

Paris is the only city left to host the 2024 Games.

City Council President Herb Wesson added, "The city of Los Angeles is a proud and enthusiastic partner in this "win-win-win" scenario".

Uncomfortably for IOC President Thomas Bach, whose much-vaunted Agenda 2020 reforms were created to make hosting more streamlined and less costly after the lavish 2014 Sochi Games, the first withdrawal came from his homeland of Germany.

Details of the agreement were not yet available, so it remained unclear to what extent LA 2024 was able to achieve significant concessions, such as additional funding for operations and youth programs in the city. They were joined by members of the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team. I don't want seven or eight years of kids to be lost and never get to play sports, " Garcetti said.
