Winter Games 2018

2018 bid process - all three Candidate Cities submit their files

The International Olympic Committee has announced that it has received the candidature files of the three Candidate Cities bidding to host the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. Munich (GER), Annecy (FRA) and PyeongChang (KOR) all delivered their files by the deadline of 11th January.

The IOC Evaluation Commission, chaired by IOC member Gunilla Lindberg, will now analyze the Candidature Files and make site inspections as follows:

Annecy: 9th to 12th February
PyeongChang: 16th to 19th February
Munich: 1st to 4th March

The Commission will then prepare a report that will be published to coincide with the 2018 Briefing for IOC Members, which will take place in Lausanne on 18th and 19th May 2011. The election of the host city will take place on 6th July during the 123rd IOC Session in Durban, South Africa.
