Kuala Lumpur IOC Session to elect Winter YOG 2020 host city

17 Jun 2014
Lausanne, Switzerland: The International Olympic Committee (IOC) today announced that it has received the candidature files of two candidate cities bidding to host the 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games: Brasov (ROM) and Lausanne (SUI).

The YOG 2020 Evaluation Commission, chaired by IOC member Yang Yang of China, will now analyse the candidature files and prepare a report that will be submitted to the IOC Executive Board. On the basis of this report, the IOC EB will decide which of the cities will be put forward for further evaluation at its meeting in December this year.

Following further assessment and video conferences with the shortlisted candidate cities, a report will be submitted to the IOC members, who will then elect the host city for the 3rd Winter YOG at the IOC Session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in the summer of 2015.

Please note that the IOC will not release the candidature files, but has informed the candidate cities that they can make their files public as of June 18. The first edition of the Winter YOG was held in Innsbruck in 2012, with the second edition scheduled to take place in Lillehammer in 2016.
