The 2028 Summer Olympics, which will be officially known as the Games of the XXXIV Olympiad, is an international athletic event. It has yet to be organised by the International Olympic Committee. The winning bid should be announced in the summer of 2021.

Possible bids[change | edit source]

Europe[change | edit source]

In 2005, the Dutch sporting confederation NOC*NSF began thinking about making a bid to host the 2028 Summer Olympic and Paralympic games in Amsterdam. The first and only time the Netherlands hosted the Olympics was in 1928, also in Amsterdam. Amsterdam bid for the 1992 Summer Olympic Games, but lost to Barcelona, Spain.[1]

North America[change | edit source]

A joint bid for Vancouver and Seattle to host the 2028 Summer Olympics is being explored. This would be the first time 2 countries made a bid together and would also be the first time that a city will have hosted both a Summer and a Winter Games since Vancouver hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics. Vancouver and Seattle both believe it would be possible to do and have said that the travel time between Seattle and Vancouver is similar to the travel time between Whistler, British Columbia and Vancouver, the site of most of the 2010 Winter Olympics.[2][3][4]
