BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) – Budapest’s city council has approved the list of venues to be included in its bid for the 2024 Olympics.
The project includes the construction of a 60,000-capacity stadium for track and field, a velodrome, a tennis complex with a 10,000-seat main court, as well as temporary facilities downtown for events such as beach volleyball and archery. Many of the venues are planned to be temporary, while others will be scaled back after the games.
Several events, including golf, rowing and equestrian, and preliminaries of the basketball, handball and soccer events would be held outside Budapest.
At its session on Wednesday, the council also rejected a proposal by opposition parties to hold a referendum on the bid.
Budapest is competing with Los Angeles, Paris and Rome for the 2024 Games.
