Detroit Olympics 2024: U.S. Games Committee Contacts City About Possible Bid

(COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.) -- Detroit is among 35 cities from across the country to receive letters from the U.S. Olympic Committee to possibly host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The committee says it's currently considering a bid for the 2024 games and is seeking to gauge the interest of cities that may have the ability to host an event with the scope and scale of the Olympic Games.

"We would like to begin having discussions with interested cities about possible bid themes as well as the infrastructure, financial resources and other assets that are required to host the Games," the U.S. Olympic Committee said in its letter. "Our objective in this process is to identify a partner city that can work with us to present a compelling bid to the IOC and that has the right alignment of political, business and community leadership."
