The Paris 2024 Olympic bid will become official starting Tuesday, according to reports.

Paris will join the bid race with Boston, Hamburg and Rome. Budapest is also expected to bid for the 2024 Games, with the host city being chosen by International Olympic Committee members vote in 2017.

In April, the Paris city council approved the bid, with reports then stating the final go-ahead expected by June.

Last week, French media reported the Paris 2024 bid would be rolled out on Tuesday — Olympic Day — and on July 14 — Bastille Day.

Paris will look to host the Olympics 100 years after its last Games in 1924.

Paris last bid for the 2012 Olympics and was considered a favorite but lost to London.

All bids are due to the IOC by September.
