2024 or 2028? Either way, Long Beach to host 3rd Olympics

Release Date: 2017-07-11

Olympic events will return to Long Beach for the third time after the International Olympic Committee announced Tuesday that either the 2024 or 2028 Olympic Games will be awarded to Los Angeles or Paris later this year.

Although the IOC is not scheduled to select the 2024 host city until Sept. 13 in Lima, Peru, it is guaranteed that the runner-up will receive the consolation of the 2028 Olympic Games, which include the Paralympic Games.

Having hosted events during the 1932 and 1984 Los Angeles Games, Long Beach is expected to play a bigger role this time when it hosts a record number of events.
