Los Angeles Agrees To Host 2028 Summer Olympics: Report

Paris will host the 2024 Olympics.

Los Angeles has agreed to host the 2028 Summer Olympics, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday, citing a source close to the city’s negotiations with the International Olympic Committee.

Los Angeles, which last hosted the Olympics in 1984, had originally sought to run the 2024 games. When several cities backed out of potential Olympic bids, however, the IOC decided to break precedent and award the 2024 and 2028 Olympics at the same time. Los Angeles’ agreement to host the 2028 summer games means Paris, the only other city to bid, will host the competition in 2024.
