IOC Confirms LA Host of 2028 Olympics

The ratification followed the approval of the IOC Evaluation Commission report on the LA 2028 bid that was required after Los Angeles shifted gears from 2024 to instead bid for the 2028 Games, clearing the way for Paris.

Paris was chosen to host the 2024 Olympics, which Los Angeles had also been bidding for before reaching an agreement with the French capital and the International Olympic Committee in August.

The evaluation commission signed off on those Monday, saying that although details need to be finalized, it is confident LA can host in 2028.

In return for going second, L.A. will not have to pay tens of millions in International Olympic Committee fees and will receive a $180-million advance, most of which will go to funding youth programs citywide beginning as soon as next year.

The move made sense because there have been so few candidate cities, so with two viable bids, Olympic leaders warmed to the idea of locking up summer hosts for the next 11 years.

"This is a historic day for the Olympic movement, and a great day for baseball and softball", said World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) President Riccardo Fraccari.

It says the two cities have "put together very inspiring projects". Bach is in Lima for the Wednesday IOC session to vote on the host cities for the next Olympics.

"This new MOU ensures that our city priorities remain front-and-center in LA 2028's preparations for the Games".

Paris 2024 officials hugged and cheered following the vote, basking in victory after three previous failed bids to land the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

Irma Brings Flooding And Disaster To Jacksonville, Florida

Swimming champion and four-time gold medalist Janet Evans is on the committee overseeing L.A.'s bid, and she joined the delegation in Peru.

Bach first signalled publicly that the double-award of an Olympics could be on the agenda in December a year ago, lamenting that the bidding process produced “too many losers”. The U.S. Olympic Committee originally selected Boston in January 2015 during its domestic bidding phase. "Both cities are very enthusiastic about the Games and are promoting the Olympic spirit in a fantastic way", Bach added.

Casey Wasserman, chair of the bid, wearing sneakers with his suit, promised to deliver Games that will be "California cool". The IOC also agreed to funnel any of its profits from the Games back to the city.

"I want to thank the people of my city, the Angelenos who have believed in the Olympics for over a century", Garcetti said then.
