2024 Summer games

The Candidature Process Olympic Games 2024 is currently underway and is the first full Candidature Process to benefit from Olympic Agenda 2020, the IOC’s strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement. The IOC has created the framework for a Candidature Process which takes advantage of an ongoing dialogue with Candidate Cities.

The 2024 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, is a forthcoming international multi-sport event. Bidding for the games started in 2015, and the host of the Summer Olympic Games will be announced at the 130th International Olympic Committee Session in Lima, Peru on 13 September 2017.

Five candidate cities were announced by the IOC on 16 September 2015; however, Hamburg withdrew its bid per a referendum held on 29 November 2015.

Still in the fight are 3 European cities (Paris, Rome and Budapest) and Los Angeles, USA .

Rome hosted the 1960 Summer Olympics and had last bid in the 2004 Summer Olympics, but was eliminated in second place over Athens. A bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics was canceled in 2012, but the Italian government now has renewed interest. Several sources from the Italian government showed that Rome is, in fact, the sole Italian candidate. Moreover, the IOC's president Thomas Bach, also confirmed that "Rome is a very strong and appreciated candidate for the 2024 Olympic Games." On 15 December 2014, the prime minister Matteo Renzi confirmed that Rome would be bidding for the 2024 Olympics. The same month it was also revealed that Pope Francis met with the head of the Italian Olympic Committee to discuss Vatican City hosting some events at the games, namely archery and football.

On 10 February 2015, the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) confirmed that former Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo would lead Rome's bid as president of the Organising Committee. "I don't think anyone in Italy is as popular as Luca is abroad," said CONI President Giovanni Malagò

Paris hosted the Summer Olympics in 1900 and 1924. If Paris won the bid, it would be the centennial of the previous games. The French capital's bids for the 1992, 2008, and 2012 Olympic Games were unsuccessfully . Paris could be the second city to host the games three times, after London. The former French Minister of Sports, Jean-Francois Lamour, had made it clear that 2024 represents a choice objective for a Parisian bid. €35 million will be budgeted to build new sports venues around Paris in order to improve the quality of the future Parisian bid. On 15 October 2014, Prime Minister Manuel Valls declared that the city would bid for the World's Fair of 2025, prompting concerns that Paris would no longer submit an application for the Olympics. However, no city official has stated that Paris is out of the bidding process.

On 8 November 2014, the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, suggested that the city might not be able to afford to put itself forward as host, saying: "We are in a financial and budgetary position today that does not allow me to say that I am making this bid." In addition, she talked about a potential bid for the 2028 Summer Olympics. However, in March 2015, Hidalgo gave her blessing to a bid for 2024. The decision to make a bid was to be taken with a vote at the council of Paris in April 2015. On 13 April 2015, the council of Paris approved the candidacy, making Paris an applicant.

Budapest wants to host the Olympic Games for the very first time. In June 2015 the Assembly of the Hungarian Olympic Committee (MOB) and the Assembly of Budapest decided to bid for the Olympics. Budapest has lost several bids to host the games, in 1916, 1920, 1936, 1944, and 1960 to Berlin, Antwerp, Berlin again, London, and Rome, respectively. In July the Hungarian Parliament also voted to support the bid. On 28 January 2016 Budapest City Council approved List Of Venues.

Los Angeles hosted the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics. On 26 April 2014, the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games announced its bid proposal for the 2024 Olympics. Los Angeles could be the second city to host the games three times, after London. On 28 July 2015, the USOC contacted Los Angeles about the possibility of stepping in as a replacement bidder for the 2024 Summer Games after Boston dropped its bid. On 1 September 2015, the LA City Council voted 15–0 to support a bid for the 2024 Olympic Games. The U.S. Olympic Committee finalized its selection moments after the LA City Council's vote. On 25 January 2016, the Los Angeles 2024 committee announced that it planned to place its Olympic Village on the UCLA campus. On 16 February 2016, LA 2024 unveiled a new logo and slogan, "Follow the sun." On 23 February 2016, more than 88% of Angelenos were in favor of the city's hosting the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games bid, according to a survey conducted by Loyola Marymount University. Current plans include an elevated track built over the football field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and a proposal to temporarily convert Figueroa Street into a miles-long promenade for pedestrians and bicyclists. On 1 June 2016, the California State Senate approved a bill that would have the state cover up to $250 million in liabilities if Los Angeles’ bid to host the Summer Olympics in 2024 is approved and the effort goes over budget.

At a first look, Budapest looks to be the outsider in this race, while Rome, Paris and LA are expected to give one of the biggest battle ever for hosting the biggest event of 2024.
