The selection follows a two-month bid process, culminating in today’s decision. The assembly began with Lima competing against Asunción, Paraguay. Presentations lasted 40 minutes, featuring videos and messages from key authorities, followed by a question session.

“The city awarded the 2027 Pan American Games with 28 votes is Lima, Peru,” announced Neven Ilic, President of Panam Sports. This marks a significant return for Lima, which successfully hosted the XVIII Pan American Games in 2019.

Ilic praised the transparent process and the friendly competition between the bidding nations. He also commended Paraguay for its ongoing efforts in sports development and encouraged its continued growth. Meanwhile, Manyari emphasized the collective joy and dedication of Peru.
