Calgary is officially interested in hosting the 2026 Olympic Winter Games.
It’s been a long journey of debating on whether or not Calgary should consider bidding on the 2026 due to financial issues the city has suffered.
But many believe that this will help bring in more tourism and make more jobs for Calgarian’s.
The International Olympic Committee announced seven cities that will be in the running.
“This is obviously very exciting…”
“We are immensely satisfied that seven national Olympic committees have decided to enter into the dialogue stage. This is obviously very exciting, not only because of the interest, but because we’ll have the opportunity in the next few weeks and few months to work together,” said Christophe Dubi, executive director, International Olympic Committee.
Each city, will be invited to bid in October, followed by an official bid that must be made by January.
Finally the official decision of which city will be hosting the games, will be made in September 2019.
