LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles has reached an agreement with international Olympic leaders that will open the way for the city to host the 2028 Summer Games.
City Council President Herb Wesson's office on Monday confirmed the deal. Spokeswoman Caolinn Mejza says the pact likely will be reviewed by the council later this week.
The agreement to be formally announced later Monday follows a vote this month by the International Olympic Committee to seek a deal to award the 2024 and 2028 Games. Paris is widely seen as the favorite for 2024.
The deal for the 2028 games would make LA a three-time Olympic city, after hosting the 1932 and 1984 Games.
