IOC Evaluation Commission 2026 report: we've "fully embraced the Olympic agenda 2020 reforms"

One month ahead of the host city election, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) released the report by the Evaluation Commission 2026.

It provides a thorough assessment of the candidates, following the working visits on 2-6 April in Italy, and analyses of the candidature files and additional documentation submitted. It will serve as a guide for the IOC Members before they vote on 24 June at the 134th IOC Session in Lausanne.

The Chair of the Evaluation Commission, Octavian Morariu, said: “Both projects prioritise legacy and sustainability by capitalising on winter sports tradition and experience, with first-rate, established World Cup venues, knowledgeable and passionate fans, volunteers and event organisers. They have fully embedded the Olympic Agenda 2020 philosophy, and have athletes at the centre of their plans.”
