The Los Angeles bid to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games Saturday celebrated Earth Day by “highlighting its designated Green Sports Park, the South Bay Sports Park at the multi-sport StubHub Center complex.”
LA 2024 released a new series of venue renderings of the Green Sports Park – the South Bay Sports Park at the multi-sport StubHub Center complex – marking the second in a series of virtual venue tours.
These renderings include StubHub Center Fields for Olympic Field Hockey; StubHub Stadium for Olympic Rugby and Modern Pentathlon and Paralympic Soccer 5 a Side; StubHub Tennis Center for Olympic Tennis and Paralympic Wheelchair Tennis and StubHub Velo Sports Center for Olympic Track Cycling and Paralympic Road Cycling.
In a statement the bid said “LA 2024 will collaborate with the South Bay Sports Park’s venue owner and operator, AEG, to incorporate resilient design, including clean energy, water efficiency and resource reuse, as well as innovative circular economy solutions for all temporary and overlay construction. LA 2024’s Green Sports Park will also serve as a demonstration for what is possible and scalable with local and regional business solutions through sustainable sourcing, labor contracting and resource efficient design.”
LA 2024 CEO Gene Sykes said “We believe that the IOC has a unique opportunity in 2024 to position the Games at the forefront of sustainability best practices, not only in terms of hosting global sporting events, but also in terms of how global sporting events can be harnessed to further a city’s long-term green goals.
“Thanks to LA 2024’s designated Green Sports Park at StubHub Center, Los Angeles’ abundance of existing infrastructure and leadership in green technology, our city is the right partner for the Olympic Movement in 2024 to achieve Games-changing green goals.”
LA 2024’s Sports Park innovation enhances the traditional concept of a singular “Olympic Park” by offering four unique Sports Parks in Downtown Los Angeles, the South Bay, the Valley, and Long Beach.
LA is competing with Paris for the honor of hosting the Games in 2024, the International Olympic Committee will choose a winner September 13 in Lima, Peru.
