---------------------------------------------------------

In February 2014, No Boston Olympics released a report that finds that staging the 2024 Summer Olympics in Boston could cost between $10-$20 billion.

The report uses both top-down and bottom-up analysis to estimate the cost of bringing the Olympics to Boston. The top-down analysis compares the past eight Olympic Games (four summer and four winter), and finds an average cost of $19.2 billion for the Summer Games, before inflation, with a median cost of $15 billion -- comparable to Boston’s Big Dig.

The report, written by volunteers opposed to bringing the Olympics to Boston, calls on state and local leaders to reject boosters’ call for an Olympic Games bid.
