The 2028 Summer Paralympics, also known as the 18th Summer Paralympic Games, and commonly known as the LA28 Paralympic Games, are an upcoming international multi-sport parasports event governed by the International Paralympic Committee, scheduled to take place from August 22 to September 3, 2028, in Los Angeles, California, United States.
Marking Los Angeles's first time hosting the Paralympics, they will be the third Summer Paralympics since the 1996 Games in Atlanta, and the fourth Paralympics overall since the 2002 Winter Paralympics in Salt Lake City, to be hosted by the United States.
As part of a formal agreement between the International Paralympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee first established in 2001, the winner of the bid for the 2028 Summer Olympics must also host the 2028 Summer Paralympics.
Due to concerns over a number of cities withdrawing in the bid process of the 2022 Winter Olympics and 2024 Summer Olympics, a process to award the 2024 and 2028 Games simultaneously to the final two cities in the running to the 2024 Summer Olympics—Los Angeles and Paris—was approved at an Extraordinary IOC Session on July 11, 2017, in Lausanne. Paris was understood to be the preferred host for the 2024 Games. On July 31, 2017, the IOC announced Los Angeles as the sole candidate for the 2028 Games, leaving Paris to be confirmed as hosts for the 2024 Games. Both decisions were ratified at the 131st IOC Session on September 13, 2017.
