Brisbane elected host of Olympic Games and Paralympic Games 2032
Brisbane was today elected by the IOC Session as host of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games 2032.
The Session accepted the proposal of the IOC Executive Board, made on 11 June, that Brisbane should host the Games.
Brisbane 2032 was the first “Preferred Host” under the IOC’s new approach to host city elections.
IOC President Thomas Bach said: “Brisbane 2032 is the first future host to have been elected under, and to have fully benefited from, the new flexible approach to electing Olympic hosts. The reforms enable the IOC to work in partnership with cities, regions, and countries, to encourage Olympic projects which use a high percentage of existing and temporary venues, which align with long-term development plans, and which have a strong vision for sports and local communities.”
