IOC President Bach Welcomes Five ‘Outstanding’ Bidding Cities For 2024 Olympics
September 16, 2015
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has officially confirmed the five candidate cities bidding to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The IOC has confirmed it will contribute $1.7 billion in cash and services to the organising committee for the Games.
“We are welcoming five outstanding and highly qualified Candidate Cities,” said IOC President Thomas Bach (pictured).
“Olympic Agenda 2020 has shaped the Candidature Process more as an invitation and the cities have responded by engaging with the IOC through dialogue and cooperation.
“In the new invitation process the IOC learnt that all the candidates are embracing Olympic Agenda 2020 from their respective vision for the future of their city. Sustainability and legacy are the cornerstones of each candidature.”
The IOC will announce the host city at its 130th IOC Session in Lima, Peru in 2017.
