Parliament

Hungary is planning to apply to host the 2028 Summer Olympic Games here in Budapest, according to a report.

“Budapest can present a credible, competitive application for hosting the 2028 Olympics”, Zsolt Borkai the president of the Hungarian Olympic Committee told Hungarian business daily Napi Gazdaság today.

The deadline for submitting the bid to the International Olympic Committee is 2019, the president added. He also noted that it is a “major challenge involving the construction of several sports complexes and appropriate facilities for transferring millions of people on land, air and water.”

Borkai, who is also the mayor of Győr, said that his city would host the 2017 European Youth Olympic Festival, which  could be the “dress rehearsal” for the 2028 Olympic Games.
