Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner is vigorously pursuing the 2032 Games, calling a critical Council meeting – and a formal vote – next week to formalise Brisbane’s pursuit and guarantee the city’s commitment to the Games.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said he wanted Brisbane to be in the best position to win the 2032 Games and the city was ready to go for gold.

“Next week we will be holding a special Council meeting to formalise Council’s commitment to pursue the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2032. We are ready to give our signature of support to enter into the agreements that will best position Brisbane to win the Games,” Cr Schrinner said.

“We‘ve worked hard to get to this point with the Games and we now need to bring them home,” Cr Schrinner said.

“This will be one of the most momentous Council meetings in the city’s history.”

This special meeting to be held on Tuesday 23 March at City Hall is a significant milestone in making the Olympic dream a reality.

“Hosting the Games would be a powerful tool in our economic recovery, would accelerate investment in critical infrastructure for the south-east and leave a lasting legacy for Queensland.”

“I’m expecting bi-partisan support for this important next step, with both major parties clearly on-board at all three levels of government,” Cr Schrinner said.

  • Media are invited to attend the opening of the meeting and the vote at the conclusion of the meeting. The remainder of the meeting will be a closed-door session due to confidentiality.
