As people around the world watch the much-anticipated Tokyo Olympics, some cities are excited about what the coming Games will bring.
The International Olympic Committee has announced its plans for when and where the Games will be held in the coming, and is expected to host cities such as Paris, Milan, Los Angeles and Beijing.
Financially, hosting games is not as glamorous as it might seem. According to a 2020 study, the average sport-related cost of hosting the Olympics is $12 billion, while the non-sports-related costs can be many times over.
For this year’s games, the Wall Street Journal reported a budget of $15.4 billion, but Japanese government auditors said whole spending exceeds $20 billion.
Hosting the games also comes with its upsides, including a country’s aptitude to show off its culture, increase tourism in the region, and create a sense of national pride.
Here is a list of when and where some coming Olympics will be held, so mark your calendars.
2022 Winter Olympics: Beijing
The 2022 Winter Olympics are expected to be held in Beijing, China from February 3. 4-20, just two months following the Tokyo Games ended. The final time Beijing hosted the Olympic Games was in the summer of 2008. It will go down in history as the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics.
According to the Olympics, the Games will feature unused mixed teams in figure skating, freestyle skating, short track speed skating and snowboarding. The design of the torch will be a design similar to the 2008 Olympic cauldron, which is intended to honor Beijing’s Olympic legacy.
There will be 13 venues where the Games will be held, divided between three regions: Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou.
Reuters reported that the International Olympic Committee would like to have spectators at the event following the Tokyo Games did not allow in-person fans due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We want everyone to have the opportunity to like the hospitality and like the marvelous Chinese performances,” Juan Antonio Samaranch Jr., who heads the IOC Coordination Committee and oversees preparations for the Beijing Olympics, told Reuters.
2024 Summer Olympics: Paris
The 2024 Summer Olympics will be held in Paris, France from July 26 to August 3. 11. According to the official website of the Paris Olympics, four unused sports will be introduced during these games, including breaking (also known as breakdancing), sports climbing, skateboarding and windsurfing.
Beach volleyball will be played opposite the Eiffel Tower on the Champs-de-Mars, while fencing and taekwondo will take place under the glass roof of the Grand Palais, according to the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The Paris 2024 Board of Directors has also approved a climate strategy for the upcoming Games that will focus in part on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the use of renewable energy in places.
2026 Winter Olympics: Milan and Cortina, Italy
The 2026 Winter Olympics will be held in Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, from February 4. 6-22. According to NPR, the final time Italy hosted the Winter Games was in 2006, when Turin was the host country. Cortina hosted the 1956 Winter Olympics.
The games also aim to improve the appeal of the mountains as a place to live, according to the Olympics, as the greater Alpine region faces population migration.
Reuters reported that the International Olympic Committee approved ski mountaineering for the Games.
2028 Summer Olympics: Los Angeles
The 2028 Summer Olympics will be held in Los Angeles from July 21 to August 3. 6. Los Angeles is the third city, following London and Paris, to host three Olympic Games. It hosted the games in 1932 and 1984.

2032 Summer Olympics: Brisbane, Australia
