The 2028 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXIV Olympiad, and commonly known as LA 2028/Los Angeles 2028, is an international multi-sport event that will be hosted in Los Angeles, California, United States between July 21 and August 6, 2028.
Bidding for the host city was originally scheduled to begin in 2019 with the winning bid scheduled to be announced in 2021. However, following difficulties with cities withdrawing in the bidding process for the 2022 Winter and 2024 Summer Olympics, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided in July 2017 to jointly award both the 2024 and 2028 Games. On July 31, 2017, an agreement was announced that Los Angeles would bid for the 2028 Games with $1.8 billion of additional funding from the IOC, which opened Paris up to be confirmed as host of the 2024 Games. Both cities were announced as winners of their respective games at the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on September 13, 2017.
This will be the fifth Summer Games to be hosted in the United States, and the third in Los Angeles following St. Louis 1904, Los Angeles 1932, Los Angeles 1984, and Atlanta 1996. Los Angeles will also become the third city after London (1908, 1948, and 2012) and Paris (1900, 1924, and 2024) to host the Olympic Games three times.
On September 16, 2015, the International Olympic Committee announced five candidate cities for the 2024 games: Budapest, Hamburg, Los Angeles, Paris, and Rome. The candidature process was announced at the same time. Budapest, Hamburg, and Rome eventually withdrew their bids, leaving only Los Angeles and Paris. A similar situation had already occurred during the bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics when Krakow, Lviv, Oslo and Stockholm withdrew, resulting in a two-way race between Beijing, China and Almaty, Kazakhstan, where Beijing was ultimately declared the winner. On April 3, 2017 at the IOC convention in Denmark, Olympic officials met with bid committees from both Los Angeles and Paris to discuss the possibility of naming two winners in the competition to host the 2024 Summer Games.
After these withdrawals, the IOC Executive Board met in Lausanne, Switzerland to discuss the 2024 and 2028 bid processes on June 9, 2017. The International Olympic Committee formally proposed electing the 2024 and 2028 Olympic host cities at the same time in 2017, a proposal which was approved by an Extraordinary IOC Session on July 11, 2017 in Lausanne. The IOC set up a process where the Los Angeles and Paris 2024 bid committees, and the IOC held meetings in July 2017 to decide which city would host in 2024 and who would host in 2028.
Following the decision to award the 2024 and 2028 Games simultaneously, Paris was understood to be the preferred host for the 2024 Games. On July 31, 2017, the IOC announced Los Angeles as the sole candidate for the 2028 Games, allowing Paris to be confirmed as the host city for the 2024 Games. On August 11, 2017, the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to approve the bid. On September 11, 2017, Los Angeles received formal approval to host the 2028 Olympics from the International Olympic Committee's evaluation commission.. On September 13, 2017, Los Angeles was formally awarded the games following a unanimous vote by the IOC. On October 16, 2017 Los Angeles 2028 received official support from the state of California.
Los Angeles was elected as the host city at the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru on September 13. The three American IOC members, Anita DeFrantz, Angela Ruggiero and Larry Probst were not eligible to vote in this host city election under the rules of the Olympic Charter. This will be the third time Los Angeles will have been selected as an Olympics host city without facing a competitive bidding process, following similar outcomes in 1932 and 1984 (Los Angeles is the only city to hold this distinction). Los Angeles previously submitted bids for the 1924, 1928, 1948, 1952, 1956, 1976 and 1980 Summer Olympics, but lost to Paris, Amsterdam, London, Helsinki, Melbourne, Montreal and Moscow respectively. Los Angeles also bid to be the US candidate for the 2016 Summer Olympics, but the USOC chose Chicago as the US candidate for those games.
While most Olympic host cities have seven years to prepare for the games, Los Angeles will see an additional four years, giving the city eleven years for preparations. The Los Angeles bid was dependent on a majority of existing venues. Other venues which are already under construction were planned regardless of the games. The Banc of California Stadium will be complete in 2018 and will serve as the home of Major League Soccer team Los Angeles FC. During the Olympic Games the stadium will host soccer and several events in athletics. Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park is slated to be complete by 2020 and will be home of the NFL's Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers. During the Olympics the stadium will host the main opening ceremony, soccer and archery.
While various infrastructure improvements were planned regardless of the outcome of the Los Angeles Olympic bid, the extension of the Metro Purple Line will be expedited to serve the 2028 Olympics, with a targeted completion date of 2024. The first phase will extend the Purple Line from the Wilshire/Western station to the new Wilshire/La Cienega Blvd. station. This phase will be completed by 2023. The second phase will extend the Purple Line to the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center in Westwood with a completion date set for 2024. The second phase will also include a station adjoining the UCLA campus, connecting the Olympic village and Pauley Pavilion with venues in downtown Los Angeles.
In 2019, the Crenshaw/LAX Line will open and will be fully completed by 2021. It will link the Crenshaw District, Inglewood and Westchester once completed. The Crenshaw/LAX line will also connect to a people mover being constructed to link Los Angeles International Airport with the Aviation/96th Street station. The construction of the people mover will be expedited in anticipation of the 2028 Olympics, with a completion date of 2024 being set.
The Regional Connector in downtown Los Angeles will be complete in 2021. The project will connect the Metro Expo Line, which already links venues in Downtown Santa Monica to venues at Exposition Park and in downtown Los Angeles, to the Metro Gold Line. This will allow for direct rail service between Santa Monica and East Los Angeles. The Regional Connector will also link the Metro Blue Line with the Metro Gold Line, connecting the Long Beach area and San Gabriel Valley via downtown. 
These and other infrastructure improvements are being funded by Measure M which was approved by voters in November 2016.
The opening and closing ceremonies will each, for the first time, be staged across two different stadiums. The opening ceremony is to start at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and finish at the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, with the order reversed for the closing ceremony.
