Candidate Cities

Withdrawn Bids

Currently, Paris is the lone bidder for official hosting privileges of the 2024 Summer Olympic 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 2018, 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The U.S. city of Boston had also made a bid to host these games, but have withdrawn the bid on the 27th of July 2015 after a lack of public support and inability to set aside needed funding.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. On 22 February 2017, Budapest's bid was also scrapped due to a 'no' vote in a city-wide referendum on the bid's viability.

In July 2017, the IOC proposed a one-time accommodation that both the 2024 and 2028 Summer Olympics are decided at once. Paris was awarded hosting rights to the 2024 Summer Olympics. As such, Los Angeles withdrew their 2024 bid as they will host the 2028 games.
