The Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games

Unique in the Olympic World is a civic organization, grounded in one of the world’s great cities, which has offered support for the Olympic Movement in good and in troubled times, since 1939. This is the continuing legacy of the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games, or "SCCOG"

The 2028 Olympic Host City

In Lima, Peru, on September 13, 2017, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) awarded the 2028 Olympic Games to Los Angeles. This was the reward of decades of hoping, planning, working, and dreaming by Angelenos under the banner and leadership of the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games (the Committee or SCCOG), the only private local organization whose sole purpose is to bid for the Olympic Games and serve the Olympic Movement.

As soon as the Olympic flame was extinguished in the Coliseum’s 1932 torch at the end of the Games on August 12, 1984, some civic leaders began to think of a “three-peat.”

No city had ever done it; but Los Angeles’s suitability to host the Games and its contributions to the Olympic Movement put it in a unique position.
