ESports Being Considered For 2024 Summer Olympics

Under the agreement, LA 2028, the committee behind the city's Olympic campaign, will invest up to $160 million to increase youth sports programs in the city during the 11 year run-up to the Games.

Estanguet also had some thoughts for esports sceptics out there: "We have to look at it because we can't say, 'It's not us. Let's try if we can find some bridges". The Paris Olympics 2024 program will be finalised after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, so the committee will have years to consider the question and take note of the reception to these showcase competitions. A key cog in the decision of whether or not to add esports will be International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach.

Video games and eSports may have a chance of being part of the 2024 Olympics.

The contract gives the city a greater share of any financial surplus from the Games and includes an International Olympic Committee contribution of $2 billion but also leaves Los Angeles with any cost overruns associated with the $5.3 billion sporting event. But Estanguet isn't making any promises.


"I don't want to say "no" from the beginning". "I think it's interesting ... to better understand what the process is why it is such a success". There will be no dramatic vote, as the French capital is the only remaining bidder for the Olympics after Budapest, Hamburg, and Rome all withdrew their candidacies.

eSports are what competitive video gaming has come to be known as, with them covering a variety of games and genres.

A rushed and contentious Friday meeting returned the result the Los Angeles City Council was hoping for: a unanimous council endorsement of the 2028 Olympics bid, and agreement that the city would cover any cost overruns associated with the games.

Philadelphia 76ers CEO Scott O'Neil said at the time that it's "a good opportunity to reach younger fans in a different way and hopefully incorporate them into our fanbase". Some of the most popular eSports games are Dota 2, League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Overwatch and StarCraft II.
