The 2028 Summer Paralympics also known as the 18th Summer Paralympic Games, and commonly known as Los Angeles, United States 2028, are an upcoming major international multi-sport event for athletes with disabilities governed by the International Paralympic Committee, to be held in Los Angeles, United States originally planned from September 4 to 17, 2028, but now likely to be August 22 to September 3.[1] These games mark the first time Los Angeles will host the Paralympics in its history. The final decision was made by the IOC on September 13, 2017, at their annual conference in Lima, Peru.


As part of a formal agreement between the International Paralympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee first established in 2001, the winner of the bid for the 2028 Summer Olympics must also host the 2028 Summer Paralympics.[2]

Due to concerns over a number of cities withdrawing in the bid process of the 2022 Winter Olympics and 2024 Summer Olympics, a process to award the 2024 and 2028 Games simultaneously to the final two cities in the running to the 2024 Summer Olympics—Los Angeles and Paris—was approved at an Extraordinary IOC Session on July 11, 2017 in Lausanne.[3] Paris was understood to be the preferred host for the 2024 Games. On July 31, 2017, the IOC announced Los Angeles as the sole candidate for the 2028 Games, leaving Paris to be confirmed as hosts for the 2024 Games. Both decisions were ratified at the 131st IOC Session on September 13, 2017.[4]


The emblems for the 2028 Summer Olympics and Paralympics were unveiled on September 1, 2020, featuring an interchangeable "A" reflecting the cultural diversity of Los Angeles.[5][6][7]
