Los Angeles (USA), Sep 15 – The organizing committee of the 2028 Los Angeles Olympic Games reported this Thursday that the Olympic Village will be located in the center of UCLA and celebrated the fact that the city The Californian will take advantage of facilities from the past, such as those used in the 1932 and 1984 Los Angeles editions, and from the future, such as the ultra-modern SoFi Stadium.
“Los Angeles is a fantastic place, with fantastic people. It’s evident by the quality and number of world-class facilities available for these Games, including modern and historic stadiums like those used in the 1932 and 1984 Games,” said Nicole. Hoevertsz, the president of the ‘LA28’ Coordination Committee.
The International Olympic and Paralympic Committee and the Coordination Committee were satisfied in a digital meeting with the media about how the preparation for the Games is progressing, six years after its celebration, after meeting this week in Los Angeles and analyzing the project.
The Organizing Committee showed the Coordination Commission various facilities that will host the Olympic trials and also showed off the UCLA center, which will host the Olympic Village in 2028.
LA28 insisted a lot on the link between past and future, something that was demonstrated in the organization plan of the opening ceremony.
The event will take place at SoFi Stadium, an ultra-modern coliseum that hosts the games of the Los Angeles NFL teams, the Rams and the Chargers, and at the LA Memorial Coliseum, which was already used in the 1932 and 1984 Games.
“LA28 is very well positioned to host a fantastic Olympic and Paralympic Games in Los Angeles. With six years to go, we entered the time to plan an incredible event, prioritizing the athletes and fan experience, as well as the responsibility prosecutor,” said Casey Wasserman, chair of the Organizing Committee.
As Los Angeles has a long series of facilities of the highest level, the 2028 Games do not foresee the construction of new permanent stadiums. Scenarios such as the SoFi Stadium or the Crypto.com Arena will be used, to which other temporary facilities will be added.
The Los Angeles 2028 Games will be held from July 14 to 30, while the Paralympic Games will be held from August 15 to 27 of the same year.
It will be the third time that Los Angeles hosts the Olympic event after the 1932 and 1984 editions. The Los Angeles city received this honor after Paris was chosen to host the 2024 Games.
