Olympics Coming Back to LA in 2028

The 2028 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXIV Olympiad, and commonly known as LA 2028, will be hosted in the city of Los Angeles from July 21 to August 6, 2028.

Bidding for the host city was originally scheduled to begin in 2019, with the winning bid scheduled to be announced in 2021. However, following difficulties in the bidding process for the 2022 Winter Olympics and 2024 Summer Olympics, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided in July 2017 to jointly award both the 2024 and the 2028 games.

On July 31, 2017, an agreement was announced that Los Angeles would bid for the 2028 games, with $1.8 billion of additional funding from the IOC.[4] Both cities will be announced as winners of their respective games at the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on September 13, 2017.

Should the plan move forward, this will be the fifth Summer Games to be hosted in the United States, and the third in Los Angeles, after St. Louis 1904, Los Angeles 1932, Los Angeles 1984 and Atlanta 1996. Los Angeles will also become the third city after London (1908, 1948 and 2012) and Paris (1900, 1924 and 2024) to host the Olympic Games three times.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
