Philadelphia 2024? U.S. Olympic Committee Sends Letter To Philly

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Could Philadelphia be the host of the 2024 Summer Olympic Games?

That's what the U.S. Olympic committee wants to know after sending a letter to our city.

The committee sent a total 35 letters to U.S. cities, and Philadelphia and Pittsburgh were two of them.

It's something that would require a budget of more than $3 billion!

Philadelphia was in the top five choices for the U.S. 2016 Summer Olympics bid but never made the medal round.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley had more details in this live video report Thursday morning.
