The team behind the bid to bring the 2024 Olympics to Los Angeles have released new renderings of the Long Beach Sports Park, one of four venues proposed for the Games.
LA 2024 Long Beach Sports Park venues, which will be a mixture of permanent and temporary venues, include:
- Long Beach Arena – Olympic Handball
- Long Beach Waterfront – Olympic Triathlon and Marathon Swimming; Paralympic Triathlon
- Long Beach BMX (temporary venue for Olympic Games only)
- Long Beach Water Polo (temporary venue for Olympic Games only)
- Long Beach Pier – Olympic Sailing
LA 2024’s city-wide Sports Park innovation enhances the traditional concept of a singular “Olympic Park” by offering four unique Parks in Downtown Los Angeles, the South Bay, the Valley, and Long Beach.
The Sports Park concept ensures athletes, officials and fans from around the world will be able to enjoy LA’s diverse geographies and cultures, and allow as many Angelenos as possible to experience the Games on their doorstep.
Like all of LA 2024’s Sports Parks, the Long Beach Sports Park is connected to LA’s growing public transit system and lies within a single, integrated secure perimeter where all attendees will be able to walk easily from one venue to another in a safe, festival atmosphere.
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.
LA 2024 Chairman Casey Wasserman said:
I am excited to share renderings of LA 2024’s world-class Long Beach Sports Park venues, which offer the ideal conditions for athletes, fans and all other stakeholders. By using Southern California’s wealth of top sports, housing and transportation infrastructure, LA 2024 will minimize construction risk and costs, and can spend the seven years leading up to the Games focused on providing all attendees with an unforgettable Olympic and Paralympic experience.
