The IOC verified Tuesday it would reveal the host city of the 2026 Winter Season Olympics in Lausanne on June 23,2019
The choice was at first set up for September in Milan, however as the Italian city is among the bidding cities, the IOC moved the last vote to Switzerland to accompany the 134 th IOC congress and the inauguration of the body’s brand-new head office.
The race for 2026 is at the minute in between the joint Italian quote of Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo, the Canadian city of Calgary and Stockholm.
The Turkish city of Erzurum was left out recently for “technical” factors, while Calgary deals with a public vote on November 13 on whether to continue its candidateship.
Sion in Switzerland and the combined Austrian quote of Schladming/Graz both fell nasty of popular referendums in the face of the ever-spiralling expenses of hosting Olympic occasions.
