The Boston 2024 Organising Committee has released plans of the city’s bid to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in nine years’ time, reports Inside The Games.
The plans include creating a waterfront cluster and a university cluster. The former would include the temporary Olympic Stadium at Widett Circle as well as the Athletes’ Village, the Boston Exhibition and Conference Centre and also Boston Harbour.
Meanwhile the university cluster will make use of current infrastructure such as Harvard Stadium, Boston University and Boston Common.
The plans center on the bid’s main mantra of sustainability and accessibility, with the venues set to be 3.3 miles apart on average – a distance that is substantially shorter than that of previous Olympic and Paralympic Games host cities.
One of the other themes detailed was the potential use of Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, despite the fact that baseball is not currently included on the Olympic program.
