Olympics are not just about who takes home the gold and who pushes themselves to the limit. Their real value comes from the stories that we tell about the people who participate in these fierce, competitive games. They take us to different places, teach us, and help us celebrate together.



The result is the safeguarding of the future of the Games through the allocation of hosting rights to two historic Olympic cities, giving athletes, National Olympic Committees, International Federations and the entire Olympic Movement an exciting framework within which to map out the next 11 years, and providing legacies that will benefit the local populations long into the future.Prior to the tripartite agreement, the Candidature Process 2024 including evaluation of the Paris and LA projects took place. This process allowed for a significant shift in philosophy, aimed to increase openness, simplicity and transparency, and created the opportunity for an ongoing dialogue between the IOC and the Candidate Cities. Changes included cost savings for the Candidate Cities, open discussions with the Candidate Cites and an Evaluation Commission report which focused on the opportunities and challenges presented by each Candidate City. In line with the IOC’s commitment to good governance and transparency, all documentation relating to the 2024 Candidature Process can be found here. The 2024 process was the first time all documentation, including the Host City Contract, was made available at the outset of the process.

Some officials suggest that the committee, confronted with the dwindling number of cities willing to be a host, will do a double award this year, picking one city for 2024 and the other for 2028. Although both Paris and Los Angeles would prefer the earlier date, people who have followed the process suggest that the committee might tilt to Paris, in a show of support after the terrorism attacks there and because some committee members are uncomfortable with the possibility that President Trump could open the 2024 Games, given his administration’s attempts to limit travel from six mostly Muslim countries.

The Los Angeles bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics and Summer Paralympics was an attempt to bring the Summer Olympic Games to the city of Los Angeles, California in 2024; the games were ultimately awarded to the city for 2028. Following withdrawals by other bidding cities during the 2024 Summer Olympics bidding process that led to just two candidate cities (Los Angeles and Paris), the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that the 2028 Summer Olympics would be awarded at the same time as 2024. After extended negotiations, Los Angeles agreed to bid for the 2028 Games if certain conditions were met. Olympic ceremonies could be held in two venues simultaneously; the ceremony would begin at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Exposition Park to honor the legacy of the Olympics in Los Angeles and then transfer to the new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood to proceed with the parade of athletes, oaths, traditional Olympic protocol and the lighting of a cauldron. LA 2024 bid leaders wish to use the new LA stadium to dispel negative thought about using the LA Memorial Coliseum for a third Olympics. They also cite ticket sales at both sites as extra cash flow for the committee. Additionally, the LA 2024 team stated they would reverse the closing ceremony with a start at LA Stadium and close the show at the LA Coliseum if chosen.

Both cities believe that due to infrastructure and venues that are already in place, they can avoid the rising costs of hosting the Olympics. Throughout the bidding process, Los Angeles noted that 97% of proposed venues for their Games already exist or would be temporarily set up. Los Angeles also says its $5.3 billion cost will be covered by sponsorships, ticket sales and other revenue sources. (Source: www.si.com)
