Introduction

1.1 INTRODUCTION

Boston is a city that has never been afraid to think
big. We are internationally-recognized thought
leaders, educators and innovators. From the
establishment of the country’s first public school to
our global cluster of biomedicine and technology,
we have redefined the boundaries of possibility.
Boston is home to more than 100 universities
and 75 hospitals, but our passion for progress
extends beyond the walls of these institutions. The
city’s unwavering dedication to the pursuit of the
possible is nowhere better expressed than in its
love of sport.
Boston is a sport city like no other. We root loyally
for our professional sports teams, support our
collegiate athletic programs, cheer our children on
in youth sports and participate in club sports for
athletes of all ages and abilities. Boston’s inclusive
sports culture connects us, creating welcoming and
close-knit communities.
It is only natural that a city that thinks so big and
loves sport so much would be wholeheartedly
committed to hosting the Olympic Games. The
2024 Olympic Games are Boston’s Olympic dream. A
dream we are deeply dedicated to achieving.
This bid book demonstrates not only our strong
desire to host the 2024 Olympic Games, but also
our absolute technical ability to do so. We have
provided comprehensive feasibility studies for all
proposed competition venues. We have established
the immense popularity of Olympic sports within
our region, and we have highlighted our extensive
experience hosting national and international
sporting events in our city.
We will deliver an Olympic Games that is compact
and walkable. We have planned our distribution
of venues to complement Boston’s robust public
transportation system. Of our 33 proposed venues,
28 will be located within 10km of the Athletes’
Village and within walking distance of public
transportation. The Games will offer a unique
opportunity to advance planned infrastructure
improvements, increasing capacity and access
across the region.

The Boston 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games
master plan prioritizes affordability. We have worked
tirelessly to secure the support of both public and
private partners to deliver extraordinary venues
for the Games. Our strategy looks to public entities
to support improvements to public infrastructure,
such as roads and public transportation, and the
universities to partner in the development of new
venues and overlay of existing venues.
The Games will provide positive and long-lasting
social and environmental benefits to communities
across the region. By partnering with a number of
local universities, we will be able to provide our
world-class educational facilities with world-class
athletic facilities following the Games. We have
located several venues in neighborhoods where
they can be transitioned to community uses, such
as health and recreation centers. Other venues will
be directed towards development following the
Games, creating new economic opportunities for our
communities. And as part of our legacy planning,
improvements will be made to both the natural
and built environment surrounding proposed venue
sites, including the addition of sidewalks, street
trees, parks and other public spaces.
In the following pages, we confirm the feasibility
of our master plan by proving our ability to meet
the necessary requirements for the field of play and
support facilities for operations at all competition
venues. Our detailed venue plans represent our
deep commitment to deliver a compact, affordable
and sustainable Games for all.
We hope that you will join us in this innovative
vision for the Boston 2024 Olympic Games. A Games
that will celebrate Boston’s role as a global leader
in education, innovation, sustainability and sport.
A Games that will inspire our youth and speak to
our legacy. A Games that will foster international
understanding and community. A Games that will
protect and advance the precious Olympic brand.

Sport Popularity
How popular is each sport in the city/region?
The City of Boston provides a depth of knowledge
and history in athletics nearly unrivaled across the
country. With historic universities and professional
teams, the community inherits a passion and
commitment to participation in sports from
many generations of engagement. From longestrun competitions to the birthplace of sport to
revered historic stadiums, the spirit for athletic
participation within the region reaches from our
families to the fields.
Professional and master level sporting events
have long been a tradition in Boston. The oldest
collegiate athletic competition was established
in rowing between Harvard and Yale. One of the
longest-held American football games exists
between the two as well – Harvard Stadium itself
is responsible for defining the field dimensions
for the sport. The Boston Marathon is the oldest
annually-run marathon in the world. The birthplace
of basketball hosts the Basketball Hall of Fame in
Springfield, the only sporting Hall of Fame in the
country to include international athletes. And the
oldest baseball stadium in the country boasts the
longest running sell-out attendance on record. With
34 professional championships – 8 in the current
century alone – Boston’s participation in sport has
generations of legacy.
1 D E C E M B E R 2014 • N U M B E R 4: S P O R T S + V E N U E S • V E N U E S

The Olympics are extremely popular in the United
States – with an estimated 219.4 million viewers
watching the London 2012 Games, it became the
most-watched television event in American history.
Delayed and extended coverage allowed viewers
the opportunity to experience unfamiliar events.
These events have large international interest
and many of their advocates have developed their
sport in Boston through university or community
programs. And while events such as the Head of
the Charles Regatta and the Boston Marathon draw
crowds of 400,000 to 500,000 annually, established
programs from high school to community clubs are
giving rise to national championships in archery,
badminton, taekwondo, fencing and more – all held
in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Events like the Boston Marathon define the
character of Boston’s appreciation for athletics.
Support can be seen by the number of clubs
surrounding a sport, and the popularity of a
sport can be experienced by the passion of its
advocates, the engagement of the athletes and the
participation of its community. The passion inherent
in the community programs of Boston will intensify
the spirit of the Games, a spirit that will engage and
inspire a global community with the same passion.
Refer to the next page for an information graphic
describing the participation in sports from the
professional level to amateur and youth programs.

Venue History:
Franklin Park is a component of the Emerald Necklace, a vast
series of open green spaces designed by Frederick Law Olmsted
for the public of the City of Boston. Sitting comfortably to the
north of the park is White Stadium, formerly George Robert White
Schoolboy Stadium, which was erected in 1945 to serve Boston
Public School (BPS) athletics and sporting events. A renovation
and expansion is currently planned to return White Stadium
to its former glory. Used in the past for high school sports, the
renovated White Stadium will offer rejuvenated athletic fields as
well as classrooms for tutoring, making it a neighborhood hub.

Venue History:
Harvard Stadium has a rich architectural and athletic history. Built
in 1903, in a Greek and Roman architectural language, it’s the
nation’s oldest. The form is similar to that of a horseshoe and to
the Panathenaic Stadium that hosted the first modern Olympics
in 1896. Its massive concrete and steel structure reinforces its
permanence in American college athletics. It is also recognized
for outstanding spectator sightlines. A National Historic Landmark
and home to Harvard’s American football and athletics programs,
Harvard Stadium is the crown jewel along the Charles River and
offers sweeping views of the Boston skyline.

Anticipated Hurdles:
Following designation as the official USOC applicant city for the
2024 Summer Games, community engagement with residents
can be initiated. Preliminary studies on minimizing the river’s
flow has shown that appropriate flow is achievable. The venue
plan will have environmental impacts along river’s edge;
however, the Boston 2024 team legacy is an expanded and
improved river walk for the City of Lowell.
