AECOM has taken on the project of renovating Los AngelesMemorial Coliseum as part of the city’s bid to host the 2024 Olympic Games.

The US$270m (£205.1m, €241.7m) revamp will be funded by the University of Southern California, which used the stadium as the home ground for its Trojans American football team.

Sports, training and media facilities will be upgraded, while the track surface which will be used for the event can be removed following the Paralympic Games to make the stadium suitable for football.

The Memorial Coliseum was the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies for the 1932 and 1984 Olympic Games, and is part of the Downtown Cluster – that also includes the Staples Center, Microsoft Theatre and LA Football Club’s stadium, Exposition Park – which is being proposed as part of the bid.

In addition, AECOM will “transform” USC’s Dedeaux Field, which is home of the university’s baseball team, into a purpose-built open-air swimming facility, making up the LA 2024 aquatics venue.

The aquatics venue had been earmarked for Exposition Park, however, following a period of consultation with international sports federations, the stadium will now only be used for football if Los Angeles’ bid is successful.

LA 2024 chair Casey Wasserman said the bid committee was attempting to “create an interesting blend of ultra-modern venues and upgraded iconic sites”.

The Californian city is competing with Budapest, Paris and Rome to host the Games, with the winning bid being announced in late 2017.
