Updated: Oct 6, 2021

The choice of Brisbane, which was the only candidate, for the 2032 Olympic Games has been confirmed. It will be the third Australian edition in history, after Melbourne 1956 and Sydney 2000.

The 2032 Olympics and Paralympics will be held in Brisbane, Australia.

Unofficially, the choice was made, as the Australian city is the only candidate to host the edition, but following the 138th session of the International Olympic Committee, held in Tokyo, official confirmation has come.

"We know what it takes to deliver successful Games," Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison told IOC members in a video link.

Australia will therefore host the Olympic Games for the third time in its history, after Melbourne 1956 and 32 years after Sydney 2000. Brisbane 2032 will come after Tokyo 2020,
