Brisbane Called to Host 2032 Summer Olympics

21st Jul, 2021

The city of Brisbane is set to host Australia’s third Summer Olympic Games following the decision by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Tokyo giving the green light to the Brisbane bid.

The decision is a game changer for Brisbane and Queensland - with the state’s tourism and global profile set for a huge boost. It is the icing on the cake for Brisbane, which is currently experiencing its biggest infrastructure boom in history.

The Games are estimated to be worth $8 billion for the state of Queensland and will create up to 100,000 jobs.

Venues across Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast will be used as hosts for the different events, travelling athletes, media and dignitaries.

Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) and the South Bank Precinct are set to be a hub for the games. BCEC, the former host of The Goodwill Games and the G20 Leaders Summit, is being considered as the venue for several Olympic events including badminton, fencing and taekwondo.

The Centre has been home previously to the Brisbane Bullets Basketball and the Queensland Firebirds Netball teams. 

The 2032 Olympics will run from July 23 to August 8, whilst the Paralympics will take place from August 24 to September 5, 2032.
