The Los Angeles Olympic committee announced that it will host 2028 summer Olympics. While Paris will host 2024 summer Olympics. In a press release that has been sent to Xinhua by the city mayor’s office, Los Angeles that is the second largest city of the US declared its intention to host the Olympic Games 2028 and its agreement with the Host City Contract 2028. The preliminary deal with International Olympic Committee (IOC) paving the way for the city to be awarded the 2028 Games.

It is said on Monday that the Los Angeles City Council and the United States Olympic Committee Board of Directors will consider the agreement for approval in the month of August. If approved that the IOC, LA and Paris may enter a tripartite agreement by clearing the way for IOC Membership to simultaneously confirm the Olympic Games 2024 to Paris and the Olympic Games 2028 to Los Angeles at the next IOC session in Lima on 13th September 2017.

In a rare move, the IOC unanimously voted last Month to announce the bid winner of the 2024 and 2028 Olympic games at the same time. That means two competitors for 2024 Olympic, Paris and Los Angeles, each at least locked an opportunity. IOC officials then entered into negotiations with bid leaders from Los Angeles and Paris to determine which city will host the games in 2024 and which city must wait until 2028.

Although Los Angeles has hosted the Summer Games for two times in history.  In 1932 during the Great Depression was the first time when Olympics were held in Los Angeles. In 1984 Olympics in the second largest city was the first modern games that didn’t leave behind large public debt.
