Brisbane Olympic bid one step closer

06 / Mar / 2015 | News

The Mayors of South East Queensland (SEQ) today unanimously agreed to support a regional bid, led by Brisbane, for the 2028 Olympic Games.

Brisbane’s potential bid for the 2028 Olympic Games was discussed at the Council of Mayors (SEQ) Board Meeting this afternoon and received unanimous support.

Regional support for the bid moves SEQ one step closer to hosting the 2028 Olympic Games. The SEQ Mayors will head to Canberra in the coming weeks to discuss Federal support, as well as pursuing discussions with the Queensland Government and Australian Olympic Committee.

A formal expression of interest for the 2028 Olympics is not required until January 2019, with a formal bid deadline later that year. No funding has been allocated towards the bid, nor is it required at this stage.
