President of Peru Dina Boluarte confirms Lima’s candidacy for the Pan American Games

Peru’s President Dina Boluarte confirmed on Thursday that Lima will go to the 2027 Pan American Games, which Barranquilla is keen to restore.

The president made the announcement during a speech in Lima, during a solemn session marking the 489th anniversary of the ‘City of Kings’.

“I have sent a message to the President of the Pan American Sports Organization (Neven Ilic, from Panam Sports) expressing the support and approval of the Peruvian government to officially nominate Lima as the venue for the Pan American Games in 2027,” said Boluarte. .

The scholarships that Colombia lost because the national government did not honor the payments agreed with Panam Sports are being claimed by various cities.

Guadalajara and Monterrey, cities in Mexico, have expressed interest in being the home of the continental competition. The same goes for Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Asunción, Paraguay.
