It's official, for the first time in almost half a century, Los Angeles will play host to the Olympic Games. The city of Los Angeles reached a deal with the International Olympics Committee to host the 2028 Summer Olympic Games early Monday afternoon.
The deal will bring the 2024 Olympics to Paris before the games return to Southern California for the first time since L.A. hosted them in 1984. According to the New York Times, the IOC will formally announce their decision on September 13.
The LA Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park will not only be the future home to the Rams, but will also play host to the opening and closing ceremonies as well as the archery competitions for the 2028 games.
Development on the new stadium broke ground in November of 2016 and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2020. The 70,000-seat stadium and 300-acre entertainment district is being built on the site of the Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, CA and promises an incomparable merger of sports, entertainment, and real estate.
