IOC announces Host City: Brisbane 2032

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has elected Brisbane as the Host City of the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

See the IOC announcement on the Olympic website.

The Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games proposal involved cooperation from all levels of government.

Council has been a partner in the Brisbane 2032 proposal, starting in 2015 when the Council of Mayors (SEQ) agreed to investigate the opportunity as part of our long-term infrastructure planning.

We now have several years to get ready for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and we remain committed to sustainable long-term outcomes, which will benefit Brisbane.

Brisbane will be home to 18 of the 32 Olympic competition venues and key non-competition venues including the International Broadcast Centre, Main Press Centre and Olympic and Paralympic Games Athlete’s Village.

City-shaping projects like the Brisbane Metro, Green Bridges and the transformation of Victoria Park are already underway and will be important infrastructure, ensuring Brisbane is ready for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
