Will Brisbane Host the 2032 Olympic Games? Find Out Tonight

Brisbane

Brisbane will find out today if it has succeeded in securing the bid to host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic games. The decision will come from the International Olympic Committee (IOC). If successful, it will be the third time that Australia has hosted an Olympic game with Melbourne the first Australian city to do so in 1956, and then Sydney in 2000.

Delivering the final pitch in Tokyo is Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. The decision will be announced in front of the IOC soon. To keep you in the loop, here’s everything you need to know about Brisbane’s bid and the much-awaited announcement.

Who else is bidding?

Early this year, the IOC named Brisbane as its preferred bidder. However, that doesn’t finalise things just yet. Cities in India, Indonesia, Qatar, Spain, and a region of Germany also expressed interest but their bids didn’t make the IOC board approval stage. That’s why even though it’s not final yet, it is anticipated that Brisbane will be given the hosting rights unopposed.

When will be the announcement?

The procedure involves members of the IOC listening to a 45-minute pitch from Australian officials, including Prime Minister Scott Morrison. After the pitch, delegates will vote between 6:10 pm and 6:30 pm AEST with the announcement expected to be delivered at 6:30 pm.
