The 2024 Summer Olympics, which will be officially known as the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, are an international athletic event that has yet to be organized by the International Olympic Committeemarker. The winning bid should be announced in 2017.

Potential bids

Asia

Taiwan's capital and largest city may put in a bid in accordance with a campaign promise made by now-president Ma Ying-jeou while he was running for president in 2008. It is seen as the culmination of a build-up in hosting sporting events for Taipei and the rest of Taiwan. Taipei hosted the 2009 Deaflympics while Kaohsiungmarker hosted the 2009 World Games.


Europe

The French capital was unsuccessful in vying to be the host city for the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games. The year 2024 will mark the 100th anniversary of the 1924 Summer Olympics held in Paris. The French Minister of Sports, Jean-Francois Lamour, had made it clear that 2024 represents a choice objective for a Parisian bid. €35 million will be planned to build new sports venues around Paris in order to improve quality of the future Parisian bid.


The organization of the Games in Copenhagenmarker has proposed a joint bid in the Oresund Region and is investigated by the Danish government. A cooperation with Malmömarker and other cities in the region has been proposed. Malmö politicians are positive to the idea of arranging Olympics together with the neighbouring country. If the Oresund Region wins the bidding, it will be the first Olympics organized by two different countries at the same time and unless a proposed Montrealmarker/Lake Placidmarker bid occurs for the 2022 Winter Olympics this would be the first multi-national bid.


North America

On July 10, 2007 it was revealed that the Canadian Olympic Committee had begun work on a potential bid for the 2020 or 2024 games for Torontomarker, the capital of Ontariomarker and largest city in Canadamarker. This would be Toronto's third bid for the summer Olympic games, after unsuccessful bids for the 1996 and 2008 games.


Monterrey mulled a bid for the 2016 Games, but the Mexican Olympic Committee (MOC) did not support the bid. Felipe "El Tibio" Muñoz, President of the MOC, announced that some cities in Mexico like Monterrey will contend to gain support to bid for the 2020 games. In August 2008, the governor of Nuevo León, the Mexican state whose capital is Monterrey, gave his support for a possible bid, resuming the discussion of whether or not to bid. In February 2009, plans were announced to build the Estadio Internacional Monterrey, a 75,000 capacity stadium. [39] At the same time Club Futbol Monterrey plans to begin the construction of their own stadium by the end of 2009 with a capacity of 50,000 spectators. Both stadiums could be used for some eventual Olympic events.


Students of the universities of Monterreymarker supported hosting the Games. The Monterrey 2014 Foundation declared it would bid for 2018 Summer Youth Olympics if Guadalajara loses its 2014 bid, and the 2024 Summer Olympic Games.


Oceania

*Brisbanemarker, Queenslandmarker
:Brisbane has been pre-selected by the Australian Olympic Committee as the next most likely Australian bid city, possibly within 15 to 20 years, which has been further endorsed by Queensland Premier Anna Bligh and Brisbane Lord Mayor Campbell Newman.Brisbane hosted the 1982 Commonwealth Games, World Expo '88, and the 2001 Goodwill Games.
* Melbournemarker, Victoriamarker
:Melbourne is considering a bid for either the 2024 or 2028 Summer Olympics. The only major venue that would need to be constructed would be a rowing and canoeing course. The city hosted the 1956 Summer Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games. It already has the Infrastructure in place to host such an event and as such may be better placed than Brisbane to host the olympics.


South America

President of the Peruvian Institute for Sports, Arturo Woodman, said that Peru would try to bid for the 2020 and 2024 Summer Olympic Games.


Trademark controversy

Anticipating bids for the Summer Olympics by Parismarker, Francemarker, in 2005 a Parisian, Mr Gilbert L., registered the trademarks of "Paris 2016", "Paris 2020", "Paris 2024" and "Paris 2028" and associated internet domain names. On March 14, 2007 the High Court of First Instance of Paris (Tribunal d'instance of Paris) ruled that the registration of the domain names was fraudulent and annulled the trademarks.
