While it’d be great to have the Olympics in the United States sometime soon (the last time was all the way back in 2002), it looks like you’ll have to wait quite a while for the Games to be held on American soil again. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has already chosen the host cities for four of the next five Games through 2028, while the host city for the 2026 Games is expected to be announced in September of 2019.
Here's the full lineup of the future Games:

2020 Summer Olympics
Tokyo, Japan July 24 - August 9
2022 Winter Olympics
Beijing, China February 4 - February 20
2024 Summer Olympics
Paris, France July 28 - August 11
2026 Winter Olympics
The ICO's decision for a host city isn't expected until October of 2019, but there appear to be four major contenders bidding for the Games: Salt Lake City (host of the 2002 Games); Sapporo, Japan (host of the 1972 Games); Calgary, Canada (host of the 1988 Games); and Sion, Switzerland. Various other cities have expressed interest in attracting the Olympics in 2026, but most have either pulled out of the running or failed to launch a serious bid.
