  2.

  8. The original estimate was made in 2016, so in current dollars as per the IOC's request. Then that amount is adjusted for inflation to 2024 dollars.
  9. That's not entirely correct. A 2024 bid, in 2016 dollars was $5.3 billion in the bid book. In the very next column on the same page it was listed as $6.2 billion in 2024 dollars (accounting for inflation). But plans were moved to 2028 instead, so there is four more years of inflation plus four more years of organization costs, and $160 million will be spent on youth sports (not taxpayer funded). That makes the 2028 inflation adjusted number $6.9 billion less the amount to youth sport. Nothing has really changed except for inflation accounting (still nine years away). There is also over $600 million in contingency funds that could be converted to a surplus *if* any of it is not used. There are still no permanent venues to build.
  10. While still nine years from the Opening Ceremony, organizers of the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic Games claim budget estimates made during a bid for the 2024 Games are still on target for 2028. LA was awarded the 2028 Games instead of the 2024 Games as part of a double allocation by the International Olympic Committee […] The post Newly Released LA 2028 Olympic Budget Remains “In Line” With Bid Estimates appeared first on GamesBids.com.

  13. BidWeek, Reporting From Toronto, Canada – I’m not entirely sure when I first made the realization.
