Brisbane to host the 2032 Olympic Games

Brisbane has been officially confirmed as the host of the 2032 Olympic Games. 

Australia will become just one of three countries to host more than two Games (Melbourne 1956 & Sydney 2000). 

Football Australia CEO James Johnson said:

"Football Australia congratulates the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC), Federal Government, Queensland Government, and Brisbane City Council for securing the right to host the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2032.

"Like the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™, Football Australia expects this enormous global event to capture the hearts and minds of the Australian public, and deliver significant sporting, social and economic benefits to our great nation. 

"Football is a feature of the Olympic Games and Football Australia stands ready to offer its full commitment and support to the Brisbane 2032 project over the next 11 years as the Olympic and Paralympic Games get set to return to Australia for a third time in history. 

"Australia is a great host, and once again we will welcome the world in the spirit of friendship and look forward to creating lasting memories."
