Olympic committee to decide whether the city will host in 2024 or 2028

It’s official: Los Angeles will host the Olympics, but it’s unclear if it will be in 2024 or 2028.

In an unusual move, the International Olympic Committee voted unanimously Tuesday to simultaneously award the games for both years to Paris and L.A. Officials will now sit down with leaders in both cities to determine which should go first, Curbed reported.

The committee will make an official announcement in September.

While Paris isn’t keen to wait until 2028, L.A.’s bid committee said it’s open to waiting an additional four years. However, if it turns out neither city wants to host in 2028, the committee will only award the 2024 games.

L.A.’s bid leaders say they’ll minimize financial risk for the city by using venues already in operation and sites that will be completed long before 2024, such as the planned Inglewood football stadium, which is expected to be completed in 2020. The UCLA dormitories would house athletes.

L.A. previously hosted the Olympic games in 1932 and in 1984. Paris last hosted the games in 1924. [Curbed]Subrina Hudson
