The 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang officially conclude last Feburary, meaning the days of watching the world’s greatest (and not so great) athletes fulfill their dreams, puzzling over obscure sports, and falling in love with figure skating stars are over -- for now. Of course, the Olympics will return with the Summer Games in 2020, and future Games in host cities all around the world.
On Monday, June 24, Olympics officials announced the 2026 Winter Games will take place in both Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo (Milan-Cortina, for short), a ski resort area in northern Italy, which beat out another dual bid by Stockholm and Are, Sweden (another ski resort area). The announcement finally completes the Olympic host city lineup for every Games through 2028. 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.
Here's the full lineup of the future Games:
2020 Summer OlympicsTokyo, Japan
July 24 - August 9
2022 Winter OlympicsBeijing, China
February 4 - February 20
2024 Summer OlympicsParis, France
July 28 - August 11
2026 Winter OlympicsMilan-Cortina, Italy
February 6 - February 22
2028 Summer OlympicsLos Angeles, California
July 21 - August 6
