LA28, the organizing committee for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Los Angeles, US, has updated its venue plan, with more of a focus on existing stadiums and arenas versus building new venues for the Games.

LA28 claims that the updated venue plan will earn more than $150 million in combined new revenue and cost savings.

Under this new proposal, gymnastics events will be held at the recently renovated Arena in downtown LA, home to basketball's Lakers, women's basketball's Sparks, and ice hockey's Kings.

Meanwhile, the SoFi Stadium, home to American football's Rams and Chargers, will become the largest swimming venue in Olympic history, with 38,000 seats; and basketball matches will be held at the Intuit Dome, also in Inglewood, California, home to the NBA’s Clippers.

The San Fernando Valley’s Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area will host BMX Freestyle and BMX Racing, as well as Skateboarding’s Park and Street divisions, and Archery.

Due to the fact that there is no Canoe Slalom venue in West USA, and the largest Softball venue in Southern California seats fewer than 2,000 people, LA28 will assign Canoe Slalom and Softball competitions to venues in Oklahoma City.

LA28’s previous venue plan was developed in 2017 as part of the city’s bid for the Games. Since 2017 new stadiums and arenas have become available, a previously assigned venue has been rendered unavailable, new sports have been added, and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has developed a policy to encourage Games organizers to prioritize using existing or temporary venues, even if they are outside of the host city.

These proposals have been submitted to the City of Los Angeles governing body, which must approve competitions that have now moved outside of the city’s boundaries.
