The municipal council of Budapest yesterday voted to support the preliminary site choices presented in the application to host the summer Olympic Games in the capital in 2024, Hungarian news agency MTI reported today.
The event would be spread across the capital at seven key sites from Óbuda Island in the north of the city to the area near the foot of Rákóczi Bridge on the Pest side, in southern Budapest, MTI added.
It was reported in September that Budapest will compete against Hamburg, Los Angeles, Paris and Rome to host the 2024 Olympic Games.
A referendum was initiated to halt Budapest’s 2024 Olympics bid, which was challenged by an unnamed person who appealed to block the referendum. This appeal was accepted by the Supreme Court of Hungary (Curia).
