The 2032 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXV Olympiad, are a forthcoming international multi-sport event. The winning bid is scheduled to be selected between 2021 (due to bidding rule changes) and 2025 by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at an unknown date.

Bidding process[edit]

The new IOC bidding process was approved at the 134th IOC Session on 24 June 2019 in Lausanne, Switzerland. The key proposals, driven by the relevant recommendations from Olympic Agenda 2020, are:[1][2]

  • Establish a permanent, ongoing dialogue to explore and create interest among cities/regions/countries and National Olympic Committees for any Olympic event
  • Create two Future Host Commissions (Summer and Winter Games) to oversee interest in future Olympic events and report to the IOC executive board
  • Give the IOC Session more influence by having non-executive board members form part of the Future Host Commissions.

The IOC also modified the Olympic Charter to increase its flexibility by removing the date of election from 7 years before the games, and changing the host as a city from a single city/region/country to multiple cities, regions, or countries.

Future Host Summer Commissions[edit]

The full composition of the Summer Commissions, oversee interested hosts, or with potential hosts where the IOC may want to create interest, is as follows[3]:

Dialogue stages[edit]

According to Future Host Commission terms of reference with rules of conduct, the new IOC bidding system is divided to 2 dialogue stages are[4]:

  • Continuous Dialogue: Non-committal discussions between the IOC and Interested Parties (City/Region/Country/NOC interested in hosting) with regard to hosting future Olympic events.
  • Targeted Dialogue: Targeted discussions with one or more Interested Parties (called Preferred Host(s)), as instructed by the IOC Executive Board. This follows a recommendation by the Future Host Commission as a result of Continuous Dialogue.

Interested parties[edit]

The interested bidding parties for the 2032 Summer Olympics, which one of them took part in targeted dialogue with IOC and Future Host Commission:


During a meeting with the IOC President Thomas Bach, Indian Olympic Association (IOA) President Narinder Batra expressed India's interest in hosting the 2032 Summer Olympics with Mumbai as the host city. Bach on response said India has the ability to host the event but advised to wait until the bidding procedure starts.[5][6][7][8] India has already submitted their official interest to bid for the 2032 Games. Rajeev Mehta, Secretary-General of the IOA, said that they were very serious about bidding for the 2032 Summer Olympics and they had already submitted a letter of expression of interest of hosting the Games to the IOC.[9] On 30 December 2019, Indian Olympic Association secretary Rajeev Mehta said that the IOA had ratified the decision during their Annual General Meeting to bid for the event and requires the support of the Indian Government.[10] India will also be hosting the 140th IOC Session in 2023 in Mumbai. [11]In February 2020 IOC member John Coates stated that India had abandoned its bid for hosting the 2032 Olympics and Paralympics and would concentrate to bid for 2026 Summer Youth Olympics.[12] Batra denied Coates's claims and stated that he was misquoted and that they are still looking to bid for the 2032 Games.[13] In May 2020, Batra said in a statement that the country will step up its efforts to bid for the 2032 Summer Olympics once the COVID-19 pandemic eases.[14]
On 1 September 2018, the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, announced in a meeting in Bogor with the presidents of the IOC and the Olympic Council of Asia that Indonesia will bid to host the 2032 Olympics following the major success of the 2018 Asian Games and Para Games.[15][16] On 19 February 2019, Indonesia made the 2032 Olympics bid official, as letters from President Joko Widodo and Indonesian Olympic Committee were delivered to the IOC in Lausanne.[17]
Qatar has announced that Doha will bid for the 2032 Games, it is planned to be the first Olympic Games in the Arab world, the opening and closing ceremonies could take place at the Khalifa International Stadium if awarded, Qatar has hosted several events including the 1988 AFC Asian Cup, 2006 Asian Games, 2011 AFC Asian Cup and the 2015 World Men's Handball Championship, the country will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Qatar is also bidding for the 2027 AFC Asian Cup and 2030 Asian Games against its neighbour Saudi Arabia.[18]


The German state of North Rhine-Westphalia has revealed a plan to host the 2032 Games in 13 cities. The cities listed were Düsseldorf, Dortmund, Cologne, Bonn, Aachen, Duisburg, Essen, Gelsenkirchen, Krefeld, Leverkusen, Mönchengladbach, Oberhausen and Recklinghausen. Over 90 per cent of required venues are already available, including 16 stadiums with a capacity of more than 30,000 seats and 24 large sports halls. This is also the first time a bid has taken place in so many cities.[19] Three of these cities already hosted the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Sailing events could be hosted in Kiel, which won a referendum on the 2024 bid at the same time when Hamburg narrowly lost it.[20] However, the suitable athletics stadiums are found in Berlin and Munich with their former olympic stadiums, and there have been challenges to find a venue for track and field events. There have also been suggestions of temporary stadium expansions for up to 50,000 spectators, which would be dismantled after the games or decreased in capacity for domestic use. The only prospective option is the expansion of the FC Köln home stadium, Rhein-Energie Stadion, from 49,996 to 73,000 seats, giving it enough capacity for athletic competitions. It could be accomplished with a temporary lower-stand covering platform for up to 40,000 people, similar to Hampden Park in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The likely venue for athletics ceremonies is the Signal Iduna Park (Westfalenstadion) football stadium in Dortmund with 66,000 seats. [21]
On 17 June 2019, the newly elected Mayor of Madrid José Luis Martínez-Almeida announced that they would explore a bid for the 2032 games.[22] It would be the 40th anniversary of 1992 Summer Olympics held in Barcelona, the 50th anniversary for the first royal sport event (the 1982 FIFA World Cup, which both cities hosted), and politically, 220th anniversary of the First Constitution's adoption. Madrid has no venues for water sports, velodrome or large permanent athletics stadium. Therefore with Agenda 2020 circumstances, these events may need to be staged outside of Madrid, although athletic competitions could held in Metropolitano Stadium with track and field platform and 40,000 seats instead of Seville and Barcelona olympic stadiums. [23]


Following the success of the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, Queensland, President of the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) John Coates said he strongly supported a bid from Queensland for the 2032 Summer Olympics and Paralympics.[24] Following speculation, a feasibility study was also commissioned by the Southeast Queensland Council of Mayors with the outcome due back by the end of 2018.[25] A 2019 feasibility study commissioned by South-East Queensland Council of Mayors back in 2016, and investigated by French company Lagardère on South East Queensland's eligibility to host the 2032 Olympic games concluded the region was capable of hosting the event, and that infrastructure and transport upgrades already needed would provide a financial return. The feasibility report notes that 80 per cent of the venues needed for such a bid already exist across the south-east, with others predicted to be constructed before 2032 in line with community needs. The document suggests Brisbane would be host of 21 Olympic venues, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast would both host 5 venues, with the remaining 7 venues to be hosted within the SEQ region. SEQ Mayors including then Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk made emphasis on the need to make the games cost effective through reusing existing facilities and using the event as a catalyst for infrastructure and job creation.[26][27] A feasibility study which was published in February forecasted that $900 million of state and federal funds would be needed to help host the 2032 Olympics and Paralympics.[28] On 1 July 2019, Prime Minister Scott Morrison, made an announcement that the Federal government would be officially supporting the Queensland Olympic bid, saying the government "will be there every step of the way".[29] On 13 July 2019, the Prime Minister put forward 10 million dollars towards the bid, as well as nominating Queensland LNP federal MP Ted O'Brien to help with the bid on behalf of the Commonwealth.[30] Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced on 9 December 2019 that the state will make an official and regional bid for the 2032 Olympic Games with proposed dates of 23 July to 8 August.[31]

Potential bids[edit]


North and South Korea announced that they will pursue a joint bid to host the 2032 Olympic Games in a statement released on 19 September 2018, following a summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.[32] It was reported that both of the countries will host a forum on the 2032 Summer Games on 15 February, in Lausanne, Switzerland to discuss about it.[33] They have released that the initial proposed cost of hosting the games would be at $3.44 billion.[34] However, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has found that North Korea's testing program is non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code;[35] if this position is still the case in 2032, the requirement that any country submitting a bid be in compliance with WADA’s code mean the bid could collapse.[36]


In September 2019, the Mayors of Florence, Dario Nardella, and Bologna, Virginio Merola, expressed their interest in bidding for the 2032 Summer Olympics.[37] Bologna's city councillor for sport, Matteo Lepore, described the Olympics as "a dream that we can aspire to and achieve".[38] Neither Bologna nor Florence had ever bid for a Summer or a Winter Olympics, but hosted the 1990 FIFA World Cup. Both cities lack suitable venues for the Olympics, so other cities may get involved. the North part of Italy will host the 2026 Winter Olympics in Milan and Cortina d'Ampezzo.[39]
On 3 February 2020, Gamesbids.com and various Dutch news sources told that the Netherlands plans to bid for the 2032 Summer Games. Belgium and Luxemburg could take part with suitable venues with no capacity to host alone. [40]
In February 2019, the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and UK Sport expressed their interest in bidding for either the 2032 or 2036 Olympics. The mayor remarked that 2032 'was not out of the question' but 2036 is more likely. It is, however, unclear which year a bid will be made. London hosted the Summer Olympics in 1908, 1948, and 2012 and has been successful in every bid submitted.[41][42]
On 8 June 2020, the Vice-President of the Turkish Olympic Committee (TNOC) Hazan Arat said "Istanbul should be a candidate city for the 2032 Summer Olympic Games." Istanbul bid unsuccessfully for the 2000 Summer Olympics, 2008 Summer Olympics, and the 2020 Summer Olympics.[43].

Cancelled/Rejected bids[edit]


It was stated by Governor Georgy Poltavchenko that St. Petersburg may bid for the Summer Olympics in 2032 or 2036.[44] There is concern with the accusations of state-sponsored doping. The three cities were among 12 hosting the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Sochi is the only one which has ever hosted the Olympics among the three, hosting the 2014 Winter Olympics and will host the 2022 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Kazan, but Russia was involved in a doping investigation for lying to WADA inspectors in January 2019, and the World Athletics barred Russian athletes from competing under their banner, pressuring the IOC to do the same in Olympic events. On 26 November 2019, WADA asked the IOC to reject the bid as a punishment for doping sample manipulations made in January. On 9 December, WADA banned Russia from bidding for international events as part of their penalty for state sponsored doping, meaning the bid has been rejected by the IOC.[45][46][47]

North America[edit]

Carlos Padilla, president of the Mexican Olympic Committee believes that Guadalajara is one of the four Mexican cities (next to Mexico City, Tijuana and Monterrey) that could seek to host some Olympic games after 2026. In an interview with the ESPN chain the director said that those four cities "have everything" to seek to be headquarters, but not immediately. [48] The city hosted the 2011 Pan American Games, and bid for the 2022 Gay Games, losing to Hong Kong.
