The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has announced that all three cities applying to become candidates to host the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in 2018 have submitted their responses to the IOC Candidature Acceptance Procedure questionnaire.
Annecy (FRA), Munich (GER) and PyeongChang (KOR) all had until 15th March to submit their files to the IOC headquarters in Lausanne and met the deadline. The completed questionnaire provides the IOC with an overview of each Applicant City’s project and is the key element in the first phase of the procedure leading to the election of the host city. The responses will now be studied by an IOC-appointed working group and a report made to the IOC Executive Board. The Board will meet in June in Lausanne to decide which cities will be accepted as Candidate Cities.
The election of the 2018 host city will take place during the 123rd IOC Session in Durban, South Africa, on 6th July 2011.
