19:15 CEST Statement by Stockholm – Åre 2026;
 

No Winter Games in Sweden
Stockholm Åre 2026 are very proud of what we have built together with many stakeholders over the past two years – and our presentations here today. We have delivered a concept, to the Olympic movement, which is modern, sustainable and forward-thinking – and which is fully in line with what is described in Agenda 2020 and in the ‘New Norm’.

Our hope and expectation has been that the IOC would be ready to move from words to action and have confidence in Sweden’s ability to deliver the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games based on our proposal and vision.

We neither want, nor can present, a concept that involves major government grants and guarantees – or change the legislation – for a sports competition.

For now, we will return home to Sweden and reflect on this result – whilst taking the positive collaborative forces with us to other future sports initiatives.

We will come back in due time to the issue of future bids.

The Stockholm Åre 2026 team wishes Milano-Cortina the best of luck in the preparation and implementation of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games 2026.
