Los Angeles and the International Olympic Committee have reached an agreement for the city to host the 2028 Summer Olympics after competing with Paris for the 2024 Games.
On Monday, the agreement was officially announced (via the Associated Press) after David Wharton of the Los Angeles Times reported IOC decided to give both “strong candidates” a chance to host the Olympics, and Paris officials showed more resistance about waiting the additional four years.
It’s unknown whether L.A. was able to receive “significant concessions” from the IOC for agreeing to wait until 2028, according to Wharton. Issues such as “additional funding for operations and youth programs in the city” were among those mentioned.
