Five Cities Eager to Host 2022 Olympic Winter Games
Five applicant cities, Krakow (Poland), Oslo (Norway), Almaty (Kazakhstan), Lviv (Ukraine) and Beijing (China) submitted their application files to host the Games to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in March 2014.
These files will be reviewed by an IOC appointed working group, which will then report to the IOC Executive Board.
The Board will reach a decision on which of these five applicant cities will be accepted as candidate cities and proceed to Phase 2 at its meeting in July 2014.
Executive Board: a group of people that are directly involved in making the most important decisions for an organisation.
