Los Angeles reached a deal to host the 2028 Summer Olympics, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The IOC is due to make an official announcement later today.

L.A. hosted the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics.

2024 was a potential year for the games in L.A.

It has been expected that L.A. would agree to go second to France, if only because local bid officials expressed a willingness to consider the option. Paris officials, by contrast, had consistently pushed back against waiting another four years.

Details of the agreement were not yet available, so it remained unclear to what extent LA 2024 was able to achieve significant concessions, such as additional funding for operations and youth programs in the city.

The last time the U.S. hosted the Summer Games was in Atlanta in 1996. The 2002 Winter Games took place in Salt Lake City.
