Los Angeles 2024 Olympic Bid Book

Organizers for the Los Angeles 2024 Olympic Bid released a copy of their initial bid book, submitted to the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC).

Los Angeles is expected to be named an official candidate for the 2024 Olympics by the USOC to the IOC by the deadline of September 15, 2015.

Casey Wasserman is chairman of the exploratory committee along with the support of Mayor Eric Garcetti, Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games (SCCOG) Chairman Barry Sanders and President David Simon.

International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach has recently announced changes to the 2024 Olympic Bid process to reflect reforms from Olympic Agenda 2020.

Unlike the past where bid cities were narrowed to finalists, all cities will go through a three-phase process and remain candidates until the end:

  • Vision
  • Legal Structure / Governance
  • Delivery of the Games

Other cities expected or considering a bid for 2024 include Paris, Hamburg, Rome, Toronto and Budapest.

The IOC recently selected Beijing as the host for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games.
