The Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games
Congratulates Los Angeles

Los Angeles (September 1, 2015) – The Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games (SCCOG) congratulates all of Los Angeles on our city’s selection as the American candidate city for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. We especially congratulate those who led the City’s recent negotiations with the United States Olympic Committee, particularly Mayor Eric Garcetti and Casey Wasserman.

Since 1939 SCCOG has tirelessly pursued its purpose to support the Olympic Movement and to return the Games to Los Angeles. This decision by the USOC is a culmination and validation of those efforts. SCCOG has kept the Olympic flame burning in Los Angeles over the years from its Coliseum Relays in the 1940’s and 1950’s to its hosting, in partnership with the USOC and the City, the International Olympic Committee’s World Conference on Women and Sport in 2012.

We are proud to have had a role in assuring the breadth and depth of enthusiasm for the Olympic and Paralympic Games that uniquely characterizes Los Angeles, and we are actively supporting the current effort to secure for Los Angeles, in September of 2017, the International Olympic Committee’s designation as the 2024 Host City.
