Mexico City, Mexico — The Secretary of Foreign Affairs has proposed that Mexico start the process to host the 2036 Olympic Games. Marcelo Ebrard made the proposal, which if goes well, will see the country organize a second Olympic Games.
He said Mexican diplomatic corps will be key to achieving it, but first, the proposal needs to be approved by the government.
“Let’s take it to the President and if he authorizes us, we will start working with the entire presence of Mexican diplomacy so that we have the Olympic Games in Mexico in 2036,” he said.
His comments were made Thursday during the signing of the Concentration Agreement between the Mexican Olympic Committee and the Foreign Ministry.
“This agreement is sports diplomacy, which means facilitating and supporting the athletes of Mexico,” Ebrard explained.
He said if successful, the games would be in 2036. If the proposal is approved by AMLO, Ebrad said “we will begin to work with the full presence of the Mexican diplomacy that we have the Olympic Games in 2036.”
