CHARLOTTE, N.C.– The U.S. Olympic Committee has sent a letter to Charlotte mayor Anthony Foxx gauging interest in a possible bid to bring the Summer Olympics to the city in 2024, The Charlotte Observer reports.
Charlotte is one of 35 cities the USOC sent letters to, as it looks for cities interested in hosting the games.
The letter includes a list of requirements that the potential hosts must meet including, an international airport, enough hotel rooms for participants and a workforce of up to 200,000, presumably, to support the large crowds the games are expected to draw
The letter also noted that it may cost more than $3 billion to host the games.
