Currently, the cities of Budapest, Los Angeles and Paris have officially submitted bids to host the games, and 11 cities, including Doha, Johannesburg, Toronto and a joint bid by Malaysia and Thailand have expressed interest in submitting bids, with the host city to be elected in 2017, at the 130th IOC Session.
The U.S. city of Boston had also made a bid to host these games, but have withdrawn the bid on the 27th of July 2015 after a lack of public support and inability to set aside needed funding. Hamburg in Germany also bidded for the games, but withdrew the bid after an unsuccessful referendum deciding to whether or not the city should host the games. On the 1st of September 2015, the United States Olympic Committee officially selected Los Angeles to replace Boston as the U.S. applicant city. A bid was also made by Washington DC, but set aside in favor of Boston. On 21 September 2016, Rome withdrew its bid for the Games due to ongoing financial troubles in the city.
