Tyrol referendum on 15 October to decide on 2026 Olympic bid
If awarded to the region, the Winter Games must be traditional, sustainable and, above all, cost-effective. “The state of Tyrol will only ever host sustainable, economically and ecologically feasible Olympic Games that are tailored to the local region”, emphasised the Governor of Tyrol Günther Platter. He also stated that the Innsbruck/Tyrol bid would be for “our Games, according to our rules. There can only be a contract with the IOC if our terms are met”.
Innsbruck already hosted the 1964 and 1976 Olympic Winter Games. 2012 the capital of the tyrol region was venue for the first edition of Youth Olympic Winter Games. Bobsleigh and skeleton races at possible Olympic Winter Games would take place at the Olympia-Eiskanal Innsbruck. ©RWH2017
