Lima in Peru has been chosen to host the 2027 Pan American Games multi-sport event for the second time in eight years.

After a two-month candidacy process, the Peruvian capital was selected ahead of Asuncion in Paraguay, securing 28 votes from the member countries of the Panam Sports organization.

A virtual vote was held, with the process carried out by British company Lumi.

Lima will also host the Parapan American Games.

The quadrennial Pan American games will return to the city after it also staged the 2019 edition, the first time the games had ever been held in Peru.

The 2023 Pan American Games were held in Santiago, Chile, meanwhile – also the first time that country hosted the event.

The Lima 2019 organizing committee was led by Carlos Neuhaus as president. 

Neven Ilic, president of Panam Sports, has said: “I want to highlight the transparency of the process and the brotherhood of both nations that competed healthily for the right to host the 2027 Pan American Games.

“A few years ago, Lima shook an entire continent with excitement and now, with more experience and spectacular infrastructure, they want to repeat or improve the success achieved in 2019.”
