Hamburg will bid to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games after being chosen ahead of Berlin as Germany’s candidate city.

German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) president Alfons Hormann made the announcement after a meeting of the DOSB’s ruling bureau in Frankfurt on Monday.

“This Olympic bid is a project for the whole of Germany,” Hormann said at a press conference. “Let’s do it!”

Hamburg joins Rome and Boston in the running, with further bids expected to be announced.

Cities have until September 15 to formally enter the bidding, with a decision from the International Olympic Committee expected to be made in 2017.
