Federal Labor congratulates Queensland on Brisbane’s successful bid to host the 2032 Olympic Games.
The announcement that Brisbane will host the Games is extremely exciting news for Queensland and the nation.
An Albanese Labor Government will be completely committed to making the 2032 Olympic Games a success.
Hosting the 2032 Games will provide a boost to tourism, trade and the national economy, deliver jobs, and accelerate infrastructure development – benefits that will be more important than ever as Australia continues to recover from the impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The decade-long runway into 2032 will also provide a unique and unprecedented opportunity to engage an entire generation in a range of sports, boosting participation and giving more young Australians the opportunity to benefit from an active, healthy lifestyle.
Australia has a proven track record for delivering world-class sporting events on a global scale, from the 1956 Melbourne Olympics to Sydney 2000, five Commonwealth Games and many world championships.
Federal Labor looks forward to continuing to work with all stakeholders towards making the 2032 Olympics are the best Games yet and ensuring that the benefits of hosting the Games – for sport, tourism, infrastructure, trade and the economy – are fully realised.
