A 2019 feasibility study commissioned by South-East Queensland Council of Mayors back in 2016, and investigated by French company Lagardère on South East Queensland's eligibility to host the 2032 Olympic games concluded the region was capable of hosting the event, the study found that infrastructure and transport upgrades already needed would provide a financial return. The feasibility report notes that 60 per cent of the venues needed for such a bid already exist across the south-east, with others predicted to be constructed before 2032 in line with community needs. The document suggests Brisbane would be host of 21 Olympic venues, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast would both host 5 venues, with the remaining 7 venues to be hosted within the SEQ region. SEQ Mayors including Brisbane Lord MayorGraham Quirk made emphasis on the need to make the games cost effective through reusing existing facilities and using the event as a catalyst for infrastructure and job creation. A recent survey done in Queensland revealed that 45 percent of the population supported a bid to host the Games, while only 27 percent opposed it and around 16 percent were undecided. This is a major factor involving Australia’s bid as public support is a major factors and this will also help them create future plans about bidding for the games.
