Possible Resolution On San Diego 2024 Olympic Bid

The county Board of Supervisors is to consider a resolution next week to back the efforts of a committee exploring whether San Diego should bid for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games.

Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner floated the idea of a San Diego bid, and recently championed a bi-national Games hosted by both San Diego and Tijuana. But the dual host idea didn’t meet Olympic rules so the exploratory committee refocused on having the city of San Diego serve as the official host with events spread throughout the region.

A letter that Supervisors Greg Cox and Dave Roberts sent to their board colleagues said that “adoption of a resolution directed to the San Diego 2024 Exploratory Committee will confirm our board’s support in principle for their efforts working with the United States Olympic Committee to submit a bid to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for the 2024 Olympic Games”.
