IOC makes historic decision by simultaneously awarding Olympic Games 2024 to Paris and 2028 to Los Angeles

The Session of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) meeting in Lima, Peru, today elected Paris as host city of the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad 2024 and Los Angeles as the host city of the Games of the XXXIV Olympiad 2028.

"Congratulations to Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028! This historic double allocation is a ‘win-win-win’ situation for the city of Paris, the city of Los Angeles and the IOC," said the IOC President, Thomas Bach. 

"It is hard to imagine something better. Ensuring the stability of the Olympic Games for the athletes of the world for the next 11 years is something extraordinary," Bach commented.

"These are two great cities from two great countries with a great Olympic history. Both cities are very enthusiastic about the Games and are promoting the Olympic spirit in a fantastic way," Bach added.

While celebrating the decision, Paris and Los Angeles both expressed their excitement in bringing home the Olympic Games.

The idea of a Tripartite Agreement came to light after a working group of IOC Vice-Presidents studied the possibility of a double allocation of the Olympic Games 2024 and 2028. The working group was set up in March 2017. 

With the blessing of the 130th IOC Session that met in Lausanne in July, the IOC, Los Angeles, Paris and their National Olympic Committees have been working together in order to reach the agreement that was ratified by the IOC Session today.

Los Angeles and Paris have put together very inspiring projects. Both have embraced Olympic Agenda 2020, particularly in the way they are planning to use a record-breaking number of existing and temporary facilities.

IOC sets up USD 1 million emergency fund to help hurricane-affected Caribbean NOCs

The Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) expressed its sympathy to the people affected by the recent hurricane in the Caribbean.

“All our sympathy and thoughts are with the victims and the families who have lost relatives in this natural disaster and with those who have lost their homes and livelihoods,” said the IOC President, Thomas Bach.

“The IOC stands ready to help the National Olympic Committees (NOCs) of the affected countries to help them rebuild sports infrastructure that has been destroyed,” the President continued.

The IOC is contacting the affected NOCs to find out more about the situation in their countries.

An emergency fund of USD 1 million has been set up to support the Caribbean NOCs and the immediate recovery efforts in the countries affected by the hurricane. The contribution is being made jointly by the IOC, Olympic Solidarity and the Pan-American Sports Organisation (PASO).

The IOC will work closely with the NOCs to assess how badly the sports infrastructure has been damaged and to understand their respective situation. Based on the assessment, a decision will be made on the best way to assist them. Once the full picture is clear, the IOC would consider increasing the original amount of the emergency fund.

The International Olympic Committee is a not-for-profit independent international organisation made up of volunteers, which is committed to building a better world through sport. It redistributes more than 90 per cent of its income to the wider sporting movement, which means that every day the equivalent of 3.25 million US dollars goes to help athletes and sports organisations at all levels around the world.
