The International Olympic Committee has unanimously selected Los Angeles as the Host City of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games, returning the Summer Games to the United States for the first time since Atlanta 1996.
At the IOC Session in Lima, IOC members unanimously voted to ratify a tripartite agreement between the IOC and the cities of LA and Paris, with the 2024 Games to Paris and 2028 Games to LA.
“This is a momentous day for the people of Los Angeles and the United States. For the first time in a generation, we are bringing the Games back to the City of Angels,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
“LA loves the OIympics because the Games have changed our city for the better twice before. We have warm memories of 1932 and 1984, but to us the Games have always represented an even brighter future and the chance to harness the power of sport and the Olympic Movement again to inspire the next generation – for the next 11 years and beyond.”
From LA 2028, thank you for following today’s historic announcement and for your support at every stage of the bidding process. We look forward to celebrating this victory with you, to the next 11 years of Games planning, and to welcoming the world together to our great City of Angels in 2028.
