France and USA invited as hosts for Olympic Winter Games in 2030 and 2034!
The IOC Executive Board have today, November 29, invited the French Olympic Committee and the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee into targeted dialogues towards hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games 2030 and 2034.
The IOC will now start more detailed discussions with the preferred hosts, the French Alps in 2030 and Salt Lake City, USA in 2034, led by their National Olympic Committees with the aim of awarding both editions at the 142nd IOC Session in July in Paris.
IOC EB also decided to invite Switzerland into “Privileged Dialogue” for the Olympic Winter Games 2038.
This decision by the IOC also means that Sweden is out of the possibility to host the Olympic Winter Games in 2030 as the Swedish project did not have all the elements required to be taken further at this stage.
