Los Angeles makes deal to host 2028 Summer Olympics

After weeks of negotiations with the International Olympic Committee, Los Angeles officials have reached a deal to host the 2028 Summer Games under terms they hope will generate hundreds of millions in savings and additional revenues.
The agreement will bring the Olympics back to Southern California for a third time, after Los Angeles hosted in 1984 and 1932. It also opens the door for the 2024 Games to be held in Paris.
“It has been certainly a roller coaster,” L.A. bid chairman Casey Wasserman told The Times, adding that IOC officials “showed a real willingness to be thoughtful and creative.”



As a result, Paris will host the 2024 Summer Olympics. Paris (and France as a whole) has only hosted the Olympics once in the games' modern history. Actually, they've hosted it several times. But it's been a very long time since Paris itself has hosted. Hysterically, you'll never believe the year...

1924!
Yep, it took a century, but it's finally happening again.

 

Still, accepting the 2028 Summer Games comes with considerable risk.

Politics and economies can make huge shifts over a decade. The 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games offered a recent example — the Brazilian economy, which was booming a few years earlier, suffered a slump that left organizers making last-minute cutbacks and scrambling to pay their bills.

L.A. organizers will also have to renegotiate contracts with all the venues, shifting to a new date. Wasserman said talks are already underway.

Finally, the City Council will have to dive back into the issue after offering its support for 2024 earlier this year. An ad hoc committee is scheduled to reconvene later this week.

Garcetti and Wasserman said they are confident that they can reach an accord with all parties — which include state and federal officials — before the IOC meets in mid-September.

At that point, IOC members will be asked to vote their approval and L.A. must sign the revised host city contract, making the deal official.

Olympic Games: Paris & LA to host 2024 & 2028 respectively

 

Paris and Los Angeles have been named as hosts of the 2024 and 2028 summer Games respectively by the International Olympic Committee.

Both cities had wanted to host the 2024 event, before LA agreed to wait an extra four years after the IOC made guarantees on funding.

The Paris Games, which had fallen short with bids for 2008 and 2012, will mark 100 years since it was last held in the French capital.

Los Angeles hosted it in 1932 and 1984.

For LA, we're assuming the Big One won't strike before.
