LIMA, Peru – The International Olympic Committee has selected Los Angeles as the Host City of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games, returning the Summer Games to the United States for the first time since Atlanta 1996. The City of Angels will be hosting the Olympics for the third time (1932, 1984, 2028) and the Paralympics for the first time.

At the IOC Session in Lima, IOC members unanimously voted to ratify a tripartite agreement between the IOC and the cities of LA and Paris, with the 2024 Games going to Paris and 2028 Games to LA. The agreement follows the IOC members’ unanimous approval at the July 2017 Extraordinary IOC Session for the simultaneous election of the host cities of the 2024 and 2028 Games.  

In its final presentation to the IOC today, LA 2028 highlighted the City of Angels’ plan to create a New Games for a New Era by harnessing LA’s unparalleled creative, storytelling assets to deliver the world’s greatest sporting event in a low-risk, fiscally responsible and sustainable way.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said: “This is a momentous day for the people of Los Angeles and the United States. For the first time in a generation, we are bringing the Games back to the City of Angels. LA loves the OIympics because the Games have lifted up our city twice before. But to us the Games have always represented an even brighter future and the chance to harness the power of sport and the Olympic Movement again to inspire the next generation – for the next 11 years and beyond.”
