IOC Confirms Receipt of Five 2024 Olympic Bids; Releases Key Documents
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced from its headquarters in Lausanne Wednesday that it received nomination letters from five cities hoping to host the Olympic Games in 2024. Budapest, Hamburg, Los Angeles, Paris and Rome. The organization also announced that the successful candidate would receive USD $1.7 billion towards organizing the Games.
“We are welcoming five outstanding and highly qualified Candidate Cities,” said IOC President Thomas Bach.
A new “invitation stage” where potential bids were asked to discuss their plans with the IOC before moving forward lasted almost nine months, now another new bid stage begins. Bid teams will be expected to submit plans around the themes “Vision, Games Concept and Legacy” before May 2016.
The IOC also released a package of critical documents for the 2024 race, completely revised to comply with IOC Agenda 2020. The documents – Candidature Process Olympic Games 2024, Candidature Questionnaire Olympic Games 2024, Host City Contract Principles, and Host City Contract Operational Requirements are immediately available online.
