The Hungarian Olympic Committee has established a committee to assess the feasibility of staging the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games in the country’s capital city. Budapest previously bid in 1916, 1920, 1936, 1944 and 1960, but ultimately never hosted the Games. Budapest also ran for the 2024 Olympics but pulled out of the race due to local opponents who wanted the money to be spent on schools and hospitals instead. The Budapest 2032 Committee is to be led by Attila Szalay-Berzeviczy, a former president of the Budapest Stock Exchange and the great-great grandson of Albert Berzeviczy, the first president of the Hungarian Olympic Committee. Other potential candidates have already expressed an early interest in the 2032 Games, including Queensland in Australia as well as Indonesia, India, Qatar, Turkey, Ukraine and Germany. After Tokyo 2020, which was postponed until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, Paris will stage the Summer Olympics in 2024, followed by Los Angeles in 2028.
