Los Angeles (dpa) - The Los Angeles City Council on Friday unanimously approved a deal to bring the Olympics to the city in 2028, rather than 2024.

"Let‘s give our athletes the best advantage they can have, let‘s give them the home court advantage," said Herb J. Wesson, President of the Los Angeles City Council during the meeting.

The budget for the massive sports event is 5.3 billion dollars.

The vote came less than two weeks after the city announced an agreement with international Olympic leaders that opened the way for Los Angeles to host the 2028 Games, while ceding the 2024 Games to rival Paris.

LA‘s 2028 bid still requires final approval from the United States Olympic Committee (USOC).

The 2028 host city contract includes 1.8 billion dollars in IOC funding for LA.

The IOC had decided on July 11 to award the two Summer Games in a single decision on September 13 at its session in Lima, pending a tripartite agreement between the IOC and the two cities that were originally both bidding for 2024.

Los Angeles was the Olympic venue in 1932 and 1984.
