2024 Summer Olympics
The 2024 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, are a forthcoming international multi-sport event expected to be organized in a city elected by the International Olympic Committee. Bidding for the host city will begin in 2015, with the winning bid to be announced in 2017 at the 129th IOC Session.
- In August 2012, Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga announced that the capital city of Nairobi was planning on bidding for the games.
- 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.
- After the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Durban was the most likely South African candidate for the 2020 Summer Olympics, before the country withdrew its bid. In August 2012, the South African Olympic Committee (Sascoc) announced that it had commissioned a feasibility study for bidding on the 2024 Olympics, including which city would be best suited to host the Olympics.
- 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".
- 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. Taipei is hosting the 2017 Summer Universiade. In 2011, President Ma Ying-jeou stated once again that Taiwan will bid for the 2024 Games.
- 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". 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.
- The French capital was unsuccessful in vying to be the host city for the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games. The year 2024 will mark the 100th anniversary of the 1924 Summer Olympics held in Paris. 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 quality of the future Parisian bid. The city decided not to bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics on July 12, 2011, after Annecy's 2018 Winter Olympics bid was rejected, and claimed that Paris would bid for the 2024 summer edition instead.
- The mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit, has stated that Berlin is exploring a bid for the 2024 or 2028 Olympic Games. 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. Also 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 the good strategical location. Hamburg would host the games the first time in history and would therefore receive the virtue over Berlin.
- 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. Milan and Florence has also expressed interest in the possibility of bidding.
- Saint Petersburg is weighing a bid to bring the 2024 Summer Games to Russia. Marat Bariev of the Olympic Committee added that the plans were still at an early stage and there were potential rival bidders within Russia: Kazan, building on its 2013 Summer Universiade development. In October 2011, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak stated that Saint Petersburg "is up to the task of holding the Summer Games of 2024". On October 27, 2013, the mayor of Saint Petersburg, Georgy Poltavchenko, said a 2024 bid is likely.
- 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. Ukraine also submitted a bid for Lviv to host the 2022 Winter Olympics.
- 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.
- 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." 
- On July 10, 2007, it was revealed that the Canadian Olympic Committee had begun work on a bid for the 2024 games for Toronto, the largest city in Canada. This would be Toronto's third bid for the Summer Olympic games, after a third place (to Atlanta, US and Athens, Greece) bid for the 1996 games and second place (to Beijing, China) bid for the 2008 games. Toronto has been actively working on hosting the Summer Olympics since 1986. The 1976 Summer Olympics were the last time the Summer Olympics were held in Canada. On August 11, 2011, Toronto's Mayoral office announced it would not be pursuing a bid for the 2020 games. As of September 2011, it was reported that there was still talk of Toronto bidding for the 2024 Games. On June 8, 2012, the Toronto City Council voted to ask staff to look at either a 2024 Olympic bid, or a bid for Expo 2025 (a major 6-month World's Fair) and asked for a staff report back in in 2013. Toronto successfully bid for the 2015 Pan American Games and is currently spending C$1.4 billion upgrading the existing, extensive sports facilities of Toronto. At the end of the 2011 Pan American Games, Allen Vansen, who serves as senior vice president of operations for the 2015 Pan American Games, stated that if Toronto does a good job at hosting the Pan Am games that Toronto could make a future bid as Rio de Janeiro, Brazil had done with the 2007 Pan American Games and then the 2016 Summer Olympics. As with Rio de Janeiro, former IOC President Jacques Rogge has stated that successfully hosting the Pan American Games could help Toronto to finally land the Olympic Games.
- With the successful development of the Pan American Games in the city and the positive reviews of the same, Governor of the State of Jalisco, Emilio González Márquez confirmed  during his speech at the closing ceremony that the city seek Olympic legacy infrastructure by leveraging the event and with a much more attractive modernization, in fact the city and is home to the World Swimming Championships in 2017 and an official candidate for III Youth Olympic Games in 2018 which would support his possible election as the candidate official. Later Senate of Mexico sent the official recommendations for the application of the city.
- By 2024, it will have been 28 years since the United States last staged the Summer Olympics in Atlanta in 1996. New York City bid to host the 2012 Summer Olympics and 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. In addition to the cities listed below that are actively exploring a potential bid Chicago, New York City, San Diego, and Minneapolis–Saint Paul, have been mentioned as potentially being interested in bidding, but have not yet formally announced their intentions to explore potential bids. On February 19, 2013, the USOC sent out letters to the mayors of 36 cities to gauge their interest in hosting the 2024 Olympics. Some of the cities included were Atlanta, Boston, New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Memphis, Minneapolis–Saint Paul, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, Miami, St. Louis, San Diego, Sacramento, Seattle, Charlotte, Portland, Phoenix, Columbus, Orlando, Nashville, Rochester, Indianapolis, and Tampa.
- On August 14, 2012, WFAA in Dallas reported that the Dallas 2024 committee is firming up plans for a Dallas 2024 Olympic bid. Matt Wood, involved in the successful Sydney 2000 Olympic bid for the 2000 Summer Olympics, is leading the effort for Dallas 2024. The current plan calls for Fair Park to be transformed into an Olympic Village with housing for 20,000 people and which would later be converted to apartments. The existing Cotton Bowl would be heavily renovated for track and field events in order to serve as an Olympic Stadium. American Airlines Center, AT&T Stadium, and FC Dallas Stadium have also been mentioned as potential venues for other events.
- 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. 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. 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. On August 17, 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. 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. On September 17, 2013, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution seeking interest in the games 
- On August 5, 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. 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".
- On August 27, 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. 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, Va., but would be mostly concentrated around D.C.
- On May 7, there was a meeting held about the chance of Boston and New England hosting the Summer Games in 2024. There is a large group of leaders and politician that support the bid. The venues could include TD Garden, Fenway Park and Agganis Arena. Other cities around New England could help host some events like Manchester, New Hampshire, Portland, Maine and Providence, Rhode Island. 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, a Twitter account, and a Facebook page. On July 31, 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 that one is former president of 2002 Winter Games, Mitt Romney is now part of the committee to get the games to Boston. Other leaders are New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. In October, Deval Patrick sign a bill to let a group look into the bid. The City of Boston would need to build a main Olympic Stadium that at least needs to hold a capacity of 80,000 people. But, Boston has many other sites and stadiums to host most of the events.
- San Diego is exploring a bid and will unveil its bid on September 28, 2013. San Diego had previously explored bidding with Tijuana, but multinational bids are not allowed.
- A formal campaign was expected after the UAE’s National Olympic Committee announced in 2012 a bid for the 2024 Games depending on Dubai government's approval. However in July 2013 Dubai's bid was considered unlikely as there were still plans to bid to host an Olympic Games in Dubai, but those had now shifted towards events further into the future.
- Former San Diego mayor Bob Filner had announced that San Diego and Tijuana, were interested in creating a multi-national bid for the games. Former 2002 Winter Olympic Games CEO and presidential candidate Mitt Romney had joined along as an advisor. Scott Blackmun had addressed this bid as "[having] its challenges". However both the USOC and the IOC have both stated that multinational bids are not allowed under the Olympic charter.
- 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 is still seeking the bid as a private endeavor, but before the bid can become official the city would have to approve it before the formal bidding process starts in 2015.
- Postponed their plans to bid until 2028 because of Tokyo winning the 2020 games.
In 8 September 2013 IOC added Wrestling to Olympic programme for 2020 and 2024 Games. FILA changed freestyle and greco-roman wrestling weights for men and decreased to 6 categories in order to add more weights for women.
