Europe[edit]

Rome  Italy Comitato Olimpico Nazionale Italiano roma2024.info Chosen by CONI

Rome hosted the 1960 Summer Olympics and expressed an interest in bidding for 2024. A previous bid for 2020 Summer Olympic Games was canceled in 2012, but the Italian government now has renewed interest.[2] Several sources from the Italian government showed that Rome is, in fact, the sole Italian candidate.[3] Moreover the International Olympic Committee's president Thomas Bach, also confirmed that "Rome is a very strong and appreciated candidate for the 2024 Olympic Games".[4] On 15 December 2014, the prime minister Matteo Renzi confirmed that Rome would be bidding for the 2024 Olympics.[5] On 10 February 2015, 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 Malago. The 67-year-old Montezemolo led the local organizing committee for the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy. Malago, Montezemolo and Luca Pancalli, the President of Italy's Paralympic committee who was named vice president of the bid committee, traveled to Lausanne, Switzerland, on 11 February to meet with IOC President Thomas Bach.[6]

North America[edit]

By 2024, it will have been 28 years since the United States last hosted the Summer Olympics in Atlanta in 1996. New York City bid to host the 2012 Summer Olympics but lost to London. Chicago made a bid for the 2016 Games but lost to Rio de Janeiro. The United States did not bid for the 2020 Olympics. In July 2012, the USOC ruled out bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics and is focusing on bidding for the 2024 Summer Olympics or the 2026 Winter Olympics.[7]

On 8 January 2015, the United States Olympic Committee announced it has chosen Boston as the candidate city for the United States bid.[8]

On 7 May 2013, there was a meeting held about the chance of Boston and New England hosting the Summer Games in 2024.[10] There is a large group of leaders and politicians that supports the bid. The venues could include TD Garden, Fenway Park, Gillette Stadium, Agganis Arena, Dunkin Donuts Center, and the Verizon Wireless Arena.[11] Other cities around New England could help host some events like Manchester, New Hampshire, Providence, Rhode Island and Worcester, Massachusetts. The Committee for getting the Olympics to Boston said it could use New England or the Greater Boston area to host some events. The committee for Boston 2024 has a website,[12] a Twitter account,[13] an Instagram account, and a Facebook page.[14] On 31 July 2013, the Massachusetts Senate passed a bill that would allow Boston to study hosting the 2024 Olympics. It has been sent to the Massachusetts House of Representatives. A group of city leaders (one of which is the former president of the 2002 Winter Games Organizing Committee, former Massachusetts Governor and U.S. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney) is now part of the committee to get the games to Boston.[15] Other leaders include New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. In October, Deval Patrick signed a bill to let a group look into the bid.[16] The City of Boston would need to build a main Olympic Stadium that at least needs to hold a capacity of 60,000 people. But, Boston has many other sites and stadiums to host most of the events. On 24 January 2014, The Boston Olympic Committee had a hearing on the safety of the games coming to Boston. Former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis was at the hearing talking about safety.[17]

Casablanca  Morocco Moroccan Olympic Committee Potential bid
In March 2011, the Moroccan government confirmed that they would begin construction of an 80,000-seat stadium in preparation for a bid for either the 2024 or 2028 Summer Olympics.[20]

Doha bid to host the 2016 Summer Olympics, in addition to bidding for the 2020 Summer Olympics. After Doha failed to become a candidate for the 2016 and 2020 Games, it was stated that Doha looks "forward to the 2024 race".[21] The country of Qatar will be hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Oceania[edit]

Brisbane  Australia Australian Olympic Committee Potential bid
Former Queensland Premier Campbell Newman backed a bid from Brisbane to host an Olympic Games.[22]
Melbourne  Australia Australian Olympic Committee Potential bid
Former Victorian Premier Denis Napthine also backed a bid from Melbourne to host an Olympic Games. On 14 August 2014, he said, "we are a sporting city. We've got fantastic facilities. We are well placed to deliver a major sporting event like the Olympic Games".

The potential bid is also supported by The Committee for Melbourne, an assembly of leaders from academic business and community fields. Chief executive Kate Roffey said, "Melbourne has collectively the best array of sport facilities close to the CBD of any city in the world, so we're perfectly positioned to head an Olympic Games".

Europe[edit]

Berlin  Germany Deutscher Olympischer Sportbund Bid submitted to NOC
The mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit, has stated that Berlin is exploring a bid for the 2024 or 2028 Olympic Games.[23] Berlin hosted the 1936 Summer Olympics and last bid for the 2000 Summer Olympics, but was eliminated in the second round with the Olympics ultimately awarded to Sydney, Australia. As newest polls in Berlin show, the potential bid is quite unlikely as the majority of Berlin's population does not support another application.[24]
Hamburg possible with Bremen or Copenhagen  Germany /  Denmark Deutscher Olympischer Sportbund / Danmarks Idrætsforbund Bid submitted to NOC
Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee, stated that Hamburg will apply for 2024 Olympic Games. Hamburg could combine the water based and the other non-water based games in a very small circle, due to its good location. Hamburg would host the games the first time in history and would therefore receive the virtue over Berlin.[25]

It is most likely that Hamburg will apply for Germany, as polls in Hamburg and Berlin show that most inhabitants in Berlin do not support the bid, while Hamburg's population backs up the application for the 2024 or 2028 Summer Olympics.[24] Hamburg's slogan is "Feuer und Flamme", or "Fire and Flame". The city of Hamburg will make a study of hosting the Olympics in either 2024 or 2028, and after proposal by the Lord Mayor of Copenhagen, Frank Jensen, the study will also look into the possibility of a joint Hamburg-Copenhagen bid, although this will demand a change of the Olympic Charter.[26][27]

Paris  France French Olympic Committee Potential bid
By 2024, it will have been 100 years since France last staged the Summer Olympics in Paris in 1924. The French capital was unsuccessful in vying to be the host city for the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games. France did not bid for either the 2016 Olympics or for the 2020 Olympics. 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 planned to build new sports venues around Paris in order to improve the quality of the future Parisian bid.[28][29][30] The city decided not to bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics on 12 July 2011, after Annecy's 2018 Winter Olympics bid was rejected, and claimed that Paris would bid for the 2024 summer edition instead.[31] On October 15, 2014, Prime Minister Manuel Valls declared that the city would instead 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 thus far.[32] In 2014 the mayor of Paris, 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.[33]
Saint Petersburg  Russia Russian Olympic Committee Potential bid
On 19 May 2014 Governor of St. Petersburg Georgy Poltavchenko said that the city can apply for hosting the Olympic Games in 2024. According to him St. Petersburg already has about 70% of the infrastructure needed for the Olympics.[34][35] Also on 22 May 2014 Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Kozak, who was responsible for holding the 2014 Winter Olympics, said that St. Petersburg has a good chance to win the right to host the Olympics in 2024. According to him, a lot of costs is not required to prepare the city for the Olympics.[36]
Kiev  Ukraine National Olympic Committee of Ukraine Potential bid
Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Borys Kolesnikov stated that in the case that Ukraine successfully co-hosts the UEFA Euro 2012 with Poland, it may potentially place a bid for hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics. Kiev was one of the host cities of UEFA Euro 2012 and is the city where the final match was held.[37]
Budapest  Hungary Hungarian Olympic Committee Potential bid
In October 2013, Attila Szalay-Berzeviczy, head of the Budapest Olympic Movement, told the media that should Hungary's and Budapest's economy continue to grow, Budapest should bid for the 2028 Olympics. But, he said, Hungary should bid in 2024 as a "warm-up" bid of sorts to improve their chances at winning the 2028 games.[38]
Istanbul  Turkey National Olympic Committee of Turkey Potential bid
In November 2013, Hasan Arat, who was the head of the Istanbul 2020 Olympic bid, vowed that the campaign to bring the Olympic Games to Turkey would continue and that the next bid will be the strongest yet. He went on to say, "We are now better equipped and major sports events and we have a greater understanding of Olympic Games." [39]
Baku  Azerbaijan National Olympic Committee of the Azerbaijani Republic Potential bid
Baku submitted a bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics and later submitted a bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics. Baku failed to become a candidate both times. Upon failing to become a candidate for the 2020 Games, it was stated that Baku would "come back again next time even stronger".[40][41] The city was chosen to host the European Games in 2015 and had already hosted the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup and various other international competitions, such as 2011 World Amateur Boxing Championships.

Non-selected applicant cities[edit]

North America[edit]

On 19 February 2013, the USOC sent out letters to the mayors of 35 cities to gauge their interest in hosting the 2024 Olympics. Some of the cities included were Chicago, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Memphis, Minneapolis–Saint Paul, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, St. Louis, San Diego, San Francisco, Sacramento, Seattle, Charlotte, Portland, Phoenix, Columbus, Nashville, Rochester, and Denver.[42]

On 10 June 2014, the USOC met in Boston to confirm the shortlist of cities drawn up for the 2024 Olympics.[43] On 13 June 2014, the USOC announced their shortlist for potential host cities: Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington.[44] On 26 September 2014, The U.S. Olympic Committee received near-unanimous support from the country's sports federations in a poll asking whether they would support a bid for the 2024 Olympics. Forty of the 47 national governing bodies took part in the poll and all 40 answered positively to the question.[45] On 1 December 2014 all four shortlisted cities Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington met the final deadline to submit their bid proposals prior to the USOC Board Meeting held on December 16, 2014 in Redwood City, California. During the closed door meeting each of the four cities were given 2 hours to present their cities bids. Following the final presentation, the USOC announced that the United States would bid to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, but did not announce which city would bid.[46] On 8 January 2015, the USOC selected Boston to be the candidate city from the United States.[8]

Los Angeles[47]  USA United States Olympic Committee la-2024.com Bid Rejected
Los Angeles hosted the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics. Los Angeles bid to become the US applicant city for the 2016 Summer Olympics, however the USOC selected Chicago instead. In September 2011, Los Angeles was awarded the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games.[48] In November 2011, a delegation from Los Angeles attended a seminar at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne for cities interested in bidding on future Olympic Games.[49] In February 2012, Los Angeles hosted the 5th IOC World Conference on Women and Sport. At the conference, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and IOC Member Anita DeFrantz stated that that the city would be interested in hosting for a third time.[50] On 17 August 2012, Councilman Tom LaBonge announced that he would introduce a motion that would "get the ball rolling" on a bid to host the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. The motion would call on the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games to gather and explore a future bid, potentially in 2024.[51][52] In March 2013, Villaraigosa officially sent a letter to the USOC stating that the city was interested in bidding to host the 2024 Olympic Games.[53] On 17 September 2013, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution seeking interest in the games.[54] On 26 April 2014, the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games officially announced their bid proposal for the 2024 Olympics.[55] On 14 November 2014 Southern California legislators sent a letter to the U.S. Olympic Committee voicing their support for Los Angeles' bid to host the 2024 Summer Games.[56]
Washington D.C.[57]  USA United States Olympic Committee dc2024.org Bid Rejected
On 5 August 2012, it was reported that Dan Knise, President and CEO of the Washington-Baltimore 2012 Regional Coalition, which bid unsuccessfully for the 2012 Summer Games that were won by London, was scoping the level of interest for a joint DC-Baltimore bid for the 2024 Summer Games. According to the Baltimore Sun, Knise believes that "there's a little bit of a spark" for another attempt at securing the bid.[58] The Sun also quoted John Moag Jr., a previous chairman of the Maryland Stadium Authority, in stating that the Baltimore-Washington area has "the largest sports infrastructure in a 40-mile radius".[59][60] On 27 August 2013, Bob Sweeney, President of the non-profit group D.C. 2024, announced that the group will put together a bid for Washington, D.C. to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.[61] DC 2024 boasts that the area has "more sporting facilities in a 40-mile radius than any other city in the U.S." and "more than 100,000 hotel rooms". Sweeney said the events would stretch from Baltimore to Richmond, Virginia, but would be mostly concentrated around D.C.[62] In September 2014, an official website was released for the bid highlighting the goals of an Olympics in Washington as well as disclosing the key members of the team backing it. A logo for the bid was also revealed at the same time the website was announced.[57] Members of the team backing the bid include Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards owner Ted Leonsis, Washington Mystics president Sheila Johnson, and former Commissioner of the NFL Paul Tagliabue.[63]
San Francisco[64]  USA United States Olympic Committee sf2024.org Bid Rejected
It has been stated that a San Francisco bid would likely leak over to Oakland and other parts of the Bay Area for help in filling venue requirements such as indoor sports.[65][66][67][68] Possible Bay Area venues included AT&T Park, Oracle Arena, O.co Coliseum, SAP Center, Avaya Stadium, Levi's Stadium, and the Golden State Warriors Arena in San Francisco. Events could also be held at area universities such as UC Berkeley's Haas Pavilion and Stanford Stadium.[65]

Cancelled potential bids[edit]

Ana Botella, Mayor of Madrid has confirmed that the city will not take part in the competition for 2024 Olympic Games after three failed consecutive bids (2012, 2016 and 2020). Despite this, all sportive projects and infrastructures of the 2020 Olympic bid would be finished on the date originally scheduled.[69][70][71]
Postponed their plans to bid because of Tokyo winning the 2020 games. The city was last hosting the 2002 Asian Games.[72] The city decided to bid for the 2028 Summer Olympics instead.
Toronto's Economic development Committee voted against bidding for the 2024 games on January 20, citing a bid would cost the city $50 to 60 million. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford suggested that a bid for the 2028 games may be more realistic. Toronto bid for the 1996 and 2008 Summer Olympics, but lost to Atlanta and Beijing, respectively. In 2009, Toronto won the bid for the 2015 Pan American Games.[73]
On 31 March 2014 a political commission looking at the possibilities of a Mexican bid for the 2024 Olympics concluded that there were no economic or infrastructure conditions in Mexico for a bid to take place[74]
Taiwan's capital and the country's largest city may put in a bid in accordance with a campaign promise made by then-presidential candidate Ma Ying-jeou while he was running for President in 2008. It is seen as the culmination of a build-up in hosting sporting events for Taipei and the rest of Taiwan. Taipei hosted the 2009 Deaflympics while Kaohsiung hosted the 2009 World Games.[75] Taipei is hosting the 2017 Summer Universiade. In 2011, President Ma Ying-jeou stated once again that Taiwan will bid for the 2024 Games.[76] On 11 June 2014, the Sports Administration reported that it has no intention of bidding for the 2024 Olympic Games.[77]
Tulsa[78]
Tulsa was originally interested in bidding for the 2024 Olympic Games and was one of 35 cities to which the USOC had sent invitations. Following high-profile news reports in several national newspapers, city officials distanced themselves from the Tulsa 2024 Olympic Exploratory Committee and declined to bid. The committee was still seeking the bid as a private endeavor.[79]
New York City
On 14 May 2014, a report in The Financial Times claimed that New York governor Andrew Cuomo was seriously considering an Olympic bid for New York City, if and when his administration received a proposal for the games. According to the Financial Times source, talks were taking place between the Governor and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and an advisory committee would likely be formed soon.[80] However, de Blasio decided against the bid in late May.[81][82]
Philadelphia
On 22 April 2013, Mayor Michael Nutter's office declared Philadelphia's interest in bidding for the 2024 Games. The city had previously expressed interest in hosting the 2016 Games, but lost out to Chicago as the USOC's bid city.[83] The City of Philadelphia withdrew from consideration on 28 May 2014 in a letter to the United States Olympic Committee citing "timing" as a major factor in the decision. The city reiterated a continued interest in pursuing the games at some point in the future. On 28 May 2014, Mayor Michael Nutter announced that he had written to the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) earlier that month, informing it of the city's decision not to pursue a bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games.[84]
Dallas
Dallas was originally planning to bid for the 2024 games, but they were not selected by the USOC as one of the four potential host cities.[85]
San Diego
After the multinational bid with Tijuana was rejected, San Diego had explored a possible bid for the 2024 games without Tijuana.[86] They were not selected by the USOC as one of the four potential host cities.[85]
In December 2013, the ex-President of the Peruvian Sports Institute (IPD), Arturo Woodman declared that Lima should bid to host the Olympic Games in 2024. Additionally, the city will host the 2019 Pan American Games. Akio Tamashiro, Affiliate Manager at IPD stated that this would be the next target of the country. The Peru launch an application using the new infrastructure, experience and legacy of many sporting events as Lima 2019.[87]
Due to the city winning the bid to host the 130th IOC Session in 2017, Lima cannot be a candidate city to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.[88] On January 22, 2015, Lima's bid to host the World Games 2021 was lost to Birmingham, Alabama.[89]
Saudi Arabia has published plans to bid to host the games together with Bahrain. All men's events would be held in Saudi Arabia and all women's events in Bahrain, because women are not allowed to participate in sports in Saudi Arabia. The IOC has dismissed the plans and said this gender split would not be allowed.[90]
While South Africa was seen as a likely bidder for the 2024 Olympic Games, recent events seem to have ended its hopes of hosting the games. Due to Edmonton's decision to end their bid for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, the South African city of Durban will host the games. South Africa's sports minister indicated on March 1st, 2015, that the nation would focus on the Commonwealth Games instead of the Olympics. [91] [92] [93]

Sports[edit]

On 8 September 2013 IOC added wrestling to Olympic programme for 2020 and 2024 Games.[94] FILA (now known as United World Wrestling) changed freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling weight classes for men and decreased to 6 categories in order to add more weights for women.[95]
