+ more

With the announcement of Los Angeles winning the bid for the 2028 Olympics, Chairman Casey Wasserman is intent on using the next 10 years to transform the Olympic fan experience through technology. This includes the creation of an app experience for fans in the venues that will allow them to see what television viewers see at home. Like athletes’ personal stories, perspective on their achievements, and history clips.

There was also a giant emphasis on AR content and interactivity. Since Los Angeles won’t need to build any new structures for their upcoming games, money can be spent elsewhere building the experience. “We don’t own the good ideas about how you deliver an Olympic Games in a special way,” Wasserman explained on Tuesday in New York. “What we do own is the ability to actually execute on them.
