The Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games
Congratulates Los Angeles

Los Angeles (August 1, 2017) – The Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games (SCCOG) congratulates all of Los Angeles on our city’s selection as the host city for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Since 1939 SCCOG has tirelessly pursued its purpose to support the Olympic Movement and to return the Games to Los Angeles. The 2028 decision is a culmination and validation of those efforts. SCCOG has kept the Olympic flame burning in Los Angeles over the years from its Coliseum Relays in the 1940’s and 1950’s to its hosting, in partnership with the USOC and the City, the International Olympic Committee’s World Conference on Women and Sport in 2012 and, most recently, organizing the acclaimed 1936 Berlin Olympic Games exhibit at the California African American Museum (October 2016-February 2017).

We are proud to have had a role in assuring the breadth and depth of enthusiasm for the Olympic and Paralympic Games that uniquely characterizes Los Angeles, and we actively supported the Bid Committee’s effort to secure for Los Angeles the International Olympic Committee’s designation as the 2028 Host City.
