SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Twenty-five cities, including San Francisco, San Jose, and Sacramento, have been invited by the U.S. Olympic Committee to submit bids for the Summer Olympics in 2024.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee’s office said while they are interested in hosting the games, a decision is far off. The Bay Area has previously worked on bids to host the Olympics in 2012 and 2016, but lost out to other cities.
“Well, receiving a letter alone from the U.S. Olympic Committee is an honor. We are a city that the world looks to for international events, but we’ve only just received this letter. It’s under review,” said Christine Falvey, Mayor Lee’s press secretary.
