In February 2021, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) named Brisbane, Queensland as the Preferred Host for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Brisbane City Council is now working with the Australian Olympic Committee and Paralympics Australia, and the Australian, Queensland and other local government partners as part of the Targeted Dialogue phase.

On June 10, the Future Host Commission (FHC) met with the IOC Executive Board and recommended Brisbane as its preferred candidate to host the Summer Olympic Games in 2032. This is an important step in the process but does not mean that Brisbane has secured the Games.

Between July 20 – 21 IOC Members will receive a final presentation from the Brisbane 2032 partners before a vote is held on whether Brisbane is to host the 2032 Games.

Hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games will create a legacy for Brisbane and is aligned with our plans for Brisbane's future.

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.
