Brisbane to host 2032 Olympics

  • 22 Jul 2021

  • Brisbane was picked on 21 July 2021 to host the 2032 Olympics.
  • The Games will go back to Australia 32 years after the popular 2000 Sydney Olympics. Melbourne hosted the event in 1956.
  • Brisbane follows 2028 host Los Angeles and Paris will host in 2024.
  • Brisbane was the first winner in a new bidding format. It lets the IOC approach potential candidates and pick them uncontested before the previously mandated seven-year advance mandated other in Olympic contests.
  • The streamlined process was designed to cut campaign costs, give the IOC more control and remove the risk of vote-buying.
