Rome To Bid For 2024 Olympic Games
The Associated Press reports that Rome is preparing to bid for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. Rome dropped out of its bid for the 2020 Games for economic reasons.
Sunday Rome's Mayor Gianni Alemanno said, "we have to be ready in 2017 to again present a bid for the Olympics".
Rome dropped out of its 2020 bid in February, a day before the deadline for submissions of bid files to the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
Premier Mario Monti said at the time that the Italian government would not provide financial backing for an estimated $12.5 billion bid at a time of economic crisis.
The IOC requires government financial guarantees from all bid cities.Write or read comments about this article
