Dallas could learn 2024 Olympic bid fate on Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

Dallas’ 2024 Olympic hopes could get a big boost or go up in flames on Tuesday.

The U.S. Olympic Committee is likely to name its finalist cities to host the 2024 Summer Olympics at a Tuesday meeting in Boston.

Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington D.C. are the reported six contenders.

However, it’s not known if the USOC will announce the finalists publicly or if the cities themselves would announce if they move forward. The committee could select two or three finalists.

The USOC chairman has previously said he would like to identify the U.S. city to compete against other cities from around the world by the end of 2014.

The International Olympic Committee is slated to pick the 2024 Olympics host in 2017.

Dallas previously made a failed bid to host the 2012 Olympics, with New York representing the U.S. in front of the IOC. London was the eventual winner.
