LA 2024 Reveals New Venue Renderings and Virtual Tour

LA 2024 - Figueroa Street - Live Site "Olympic WayThe Los Angeles bid to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games Thursday unveiled new renderings as part of a series of “virtual tours” of venues that will be behind the city’s proposed Games.

The first series highlights the LA 2024 Downtown Sports Park, and though the renderings show the venues with full Games-time overlays and upgrades – most of the facilities exists in some form today.

LA 2024 Chairman Casey Wasserman said “LA is the right choice for 2024 because our city can host the Games without having to build any new permanent venues or an Olympic and Paralympic Village.”

Each of LA 2024’s Sports Parks will include dining, music, sponsor activations, sports showcases and celebration Live Sites for event and non-event ticket holders to enjoy.”

LA 2024’s dynamic ticketing model – connecting nearby fans with available tickets in real time – will ensure every athlete in every sport competes in front of full stadiums with passionate, engaged supporters.
