Potential bids

Africa

Durban, along with Cape Town, is planning on bidding for the 2020 Summer Olympics. If Durban does not win the bid, there is a possibility that they will bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics. [1]

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 Kaohsiung hosted the 2009 World Games.[2]

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 former 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.[3][4][5]
The organization of the Games in Copenhagen has proposed a joint bid in the Oresund Region and is investigated by the Danish government.[6] A cooperation with Malmö and other cities in the region has been proposed.[7] Malmö politicians are positive to the idea of arranging Olympics together with the neighboring country, Sweden.[7] If the Oresund Region bids and wins, it will be the first Olympics organized by two different countries at the same time and unless a proposed Montreal/Lake Placid bid occurs for the 2022 Winter Olympics, this would be the first multi-national bid.
The dutch city of Amsterdam showed interest to bid for the Games. [8]
Madrid is planning a bid for the 2024, or the 2020 Summer Olympics.[9]

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 Toronto, the capital of Ontario and largest city in Canada.[10] This would be Toronto's third bid for the summer Olympic games, after unsuccessful bids for the 1996 and 2008 games, but a successful bid for the 2015 Pan American 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 Monterrey 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.[11]
Larry Needle, executive director of the Philadelphia Sports Congress, said that if Philadelphia, the largest city in Pennsylvania, wants to host the Olympics, its earliest realistic chance would be the 2024 Summer Games [12]. A study by eleven graduate students from the University of Pennsylvania showed that Philadelphia should consider bidding for the 2024 Olympics. The study said that one of the city's biggest challenges would be convincing the voters who select the host city that Philadelphia is a "world-class city", something that "will require strategic changes in the city’s landscape in conjunction with a persuasive marketing strategy". A movement to get the Olympics is underway on facebook on the page "Summer Olympics Philadelphia 2024."

Oceania

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.[13] Brisbane hosted the 1982 Commonwealth Games, World Expo '88, and the 2001 Goodwill Games.
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.[14]

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.[15]

Possible bids

Europe

  • Copenhagen, Denmark

    The organization of the Games in Copenhagen is being investigated by the Danish government [1].

  • Paris, France

    The French capital lost the bid to be the host city for the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympic Games. 2024 will be the 100th anniversary of the last time the Summer Games were celebrated in France. The French Minister of Sports, Jean-Francois Lamour, has made it clear that Paris will likely make a bid for the 2024 Games [2].

North America

  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

    Larry Needle, executive director of the Philadelphia Sports Congress, said that if Philadelphia, the largest city in Pennsylvania, wants to host the Olympics, its earliest realistic chance would be the 2024 Summer Games[3].

    A study by eleven graduate students from the University of Pennsylvania showed that Philadelphia should consider bidding for the 2024 Olympics. The study said that one of the city's biggest challenges would be convincing the voters who select the host city that Philadelphia is a "world-class city", something that "will require strategic changes in the city’s landscape in conjunction with a persuasive marketing strategy". The study mentions that when arriving in the city from Philadelphia International Airport, it is difficult to find a route that does not have abandoned oil tanks, old structures and thousands of tons of waste. One good thing about having the Games in Philadelphia is that it is near many large cities.

  • Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    On July 10, 2007 it was revealed that the Canadian Olympic Committee has begun working on a potential bid for the 2020 or 2024 games for Toronto, the capital of Ontario and the largest city in Canada.[4] This would be Toronto's third bid for the summer Olympic games, after unsuccessful bids for the 1996 and 2008 Summer Games.

Oceania

  • Brisbane, Australia

    The subtropical city of Brisbane would seriously consider bidding for the Olympic Games in 2020 or 2024[5], former Queensland Premier Peter Beattie has said. His announcement came after IOC President Jacques Rogge said the IOC would love to see a bid from Brisbane in the future.

    Australia hosted the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne. In 1985, Brisbane lost the bid for the 1992 Summer Olympics, which were held in Barcelona. However, Brisbane has experience in hosting major international sporting events; the city hosted the 1982 Commonwealth Games and the 2001 Goodwill Games.

Australia also hosted the Olympic games in Sydney, 2000.
