The US Olympic Committee (USOC) has unanimously selected Boston as its applicant city for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The culmination of a 22-month evaluation process, Boston was selected over Los Angeles, Washington and San Francisco.

“This bid uniquely combines an exciting, athlete-focused concept for hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games with Boston’s existing long-term vision,” says USOC CEO Scott Blackmun. “We look forward to working with Mayor Walsh and the Boston 2024 team to fully engage with the local community and identify ways we can make the bid even better.”

The International Olympic Committee’s deadline for 2024 bids is mid-September of this year. Under the new structure, the IOC will meet with representatives from each applicant city in Lausanne in October, 2015, to establish rules and procedures for the international bidding campaign. Cities will then have until early January, 2016, to submit their final bids. A host city will be announced in 2017. 

The US last hosted the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 1996 (Atlanta). St. Louis hosted in 1904 and Los Angeles held the Games in both 1932 and 1984.
