(SFC) Los Angeles (LA) 2024 has been selected to move onto the third and final stage of the Candidature Process by the International Olympic Committee's (IOC's) Executive Board.

This decision follows the analysis of LA 2024's second stage Candidature File on, "Governance, Legal and Venue Funding," by the IOC Evaluation Commission Working Group.

LA 2024 showcased the strong government support, venue partnerships, and economic engine that will allow them to deliver a low-risk, sustainable, and innovative Games for a new era. One of the critical partnerships mentioned was with the University of Southern California to host the Main Press Center (MPC) on its state-of-the-art campus, putting the MPC at the center of LA 2024's Downtown Sports Park. For more information about LA 2024's Stage 2, Candidature File can be found in English and French on the bid's official website.

"On behalf of LA 2024, we are honored to proceed to the next stage of the IOC's Candidature Process and thank the IOC for their continued support and valuable feedback. The IOC's collaborative process as outlined by the visionary Olympic Agenda 2020 reforms has proved greatly beneficial to our committee as we create LA 2024's low-risk, innovative and sustainable new Games for a new era," expressed LA 2024 Chair, Casey Wasserman.

LA 2024 will now focus on the third stage of the bidding process, which will address, "Games Delivery, Experience and Venue Legacy."
