(ESPN) – The Los Angeles 2024 Olympic Bid Committee has scheduled a news conference for 8 p.m. ET Monday at the StubHub Center, where Mayor Eric Garcetti is expected to announce the city has reached an agreement with the International Olympic Committee to host the 2028 Games.
The decision means Paris will host the 2024 Olympics and marks the return of the Summer Games to the United States for the first time since 1996 in Atlanta. Los Angeles (1932, 1984, 2028) and Paris (1900, 1924, 2024) will join London as the only cities to host three Olympic Games.
Both Games will be officially awarded at the 130th IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on Sept. 13.
The agreement was first reported by the Los Angeles Times and confirmed by ESPN.
