Benefits of Bidding for the Games
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is committed to supporting every city and National Olympic Committee that wishes to bid to host the Olympic Games. It aims to ensure that all potential bidding cities and NOCs receive the necessary information to launch a fully formed bid.
The Olympic Games have the power to significantly change a community, its image and its infrastructure. Through their scope and profile, the Olympic Games provide major opportunities for positive improvement and significant legacies. These opportunities can include environmental, economic, social as well as sporting and urban development.. Learn more about specific bid legacies here
IOC Honorary President Jacques Rogge said: “I call it a social responsibility to have a sustainable legacy, because we cannot ask to have investment for just two weeks of competition – these investments are there for generations to come.”
