  • Calgary among seven candidates to express interest in hosting 2026 Winter Olympics

A Calgary bid would cost $30 million, which would be shared by all three levels of government, and It is estimated that it would cost about $4.6 billion to host the games here.

A statement by the IOC said that Baach's visit to North Korea last week was 'part of the close cooperation and consultations the IOC enjoys with all of the 206 national Olympic committees'.

Graz in Austria, Calgary in Canada, a joint bid from Milan, Turin and Cortina d┬┤Ampezzo in Italy, Sapporo, Japan, Stockholm, Sweden, Sion in Switzerland, and Erzurum, Turkey, have put their names forward for the initial phase that ends in October 2018. Innsbruck exited the 2026 race last year after losing a referendum, and several other Summer and Winter bids in the past few years have fallen victim to the same. Cortina is also a former host, having organized the 1956 Winter Olympics, with Turin hosting in 2006. The Dialogue stage will continue into the fall, when the International Olympic Committee will select a number of the interested cities to move on into the "candidature stage".

"We want to use existing infrastructure every chance possible, so whether it was hosting a previous Olympic Games as per the case of Sapporo, or whether this is a region that frequently hosts world cups, world championships, or other multi-sport events - it's always better because we can work with what already exists, we don't need to build".


The IOC will elect a victor September 2019. The IOC has turned the page with regard to Olympic candidatures.

Stockholm hosted the 1912 Olympics, but has never held the Winter Games.

"We don't see a problem with this, on the contrary", said Dubi.

It will elect the winning bid at its session in Milan in September 2019. He said that would include looking at the numbers from Vancouver in 2010 and to factor in realistic figures looking ahead to 2026.
