Thomas Bach, president of the International Olympic Committee, received a letter from Foreign Affairs Secretary Marcelo Ebrard to formally request the organisation of the Olympic Games in 2036 or 2040.

Ebrard shared on his Twitter account the letter he sent to Back to officially express the intention to host one of the top athletic competitions.

“The purpose of this visit is to express to you and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), in a formal way, Mexico‘s interest in organising the next Olympic Games in 2036-2040.”

“Mexico has, in various cities and regions, the sporting, economic and hotel infrastructure to hold a successful, austere and universal Olympic Games that promote the values of peace, brotherhood and justice in which we believe.

“On behalf of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and the people of Mexico, I thank you for your kindness and attention to this proposal that we are presenting today, while reiterating the total willingness of our government and the Mexican Olympic Committee to collaborate with you and the IOC in the subsequent steps that derive from it,” Ebrard wrote.
