Los Angeles will host 2028 Olympics
The Summer Olympics will head to Los Angeles in 2028.
The city said it has struck a deal with the International Olympic Committee to host the games. The announcement clears the way for Paris to hold the Olympics in 2024.
The L.A. City Council will hold an ad-hoc meeting on Friday to discuss accepting the deal, said spokeswoman Caolinn Mejza.
The IOC said it will give the Los Angeles organizing committee $1.8 billion as part of the agreement. The incentive package aims in part to “increase participation and access to youth sports programmes in the City of Los Angeles in the years leading up to the Games,” according to an IOC statement.
