2024 – Dubai delaying its candidacy

The city of the UAE is a candidate to host the Summer Olympics of 2024 and not to those of 2020.

“While a feasibility study on the ability of Dubai to host the Olympics found that 70% of the infrastructure already in place or planned, it was decided that an application would be more appropriate in 2024,” the government said in a statement.

Dubai was originally intended to be a candidate for the 2020 Games. While Istanbul and Doha are planning to attend, Rome, Tokyo and Madrid are already officially candidates for the 2020 Games.

The candidate cities have until 1 September to come forward. The decision will be September 7, 2013 in Buenos Aires.
