How will Los Angeles benefit from the Games?

Sport has the ability to connect and unite people across communities and around the world, coming together through a shared purpose. The LA28 Games will showcase the best of sports and offer an opportunity to catalyze lasting change, using sports as a driver of progress.

With Los Angeles hosting the Olympics for the third time and the Paralympics for the first time in 2028, the Games will leverage the region’s existing infrastructure and the community’s rich history of sports and live entertainment to deliver the world’s first Games to build no new permanent venues – maintaining a focus on people first to create a lasting human legacy. 

The LA28 Games will drive equitable access to youth sports, with LA28's $160 million investment in sports for kids across Los Angeles, the single largest investment in youth sports development in California. As Los Angeles hosts its first Paralympics, the Games can advance inclusion for people with disabilities.   

The LA28 Games will also bring employment opportunities, economic benefit and pride to people across Los Angeles.
