Milan-Cortina d’Ampezzo to host 2026 Winter Olympics

Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo are promising an Italian Olympics packed with style and elan after winning the right to stage the 2026 Winter Games. Milan earned 47 votes from the International Olympic Committee membership, compared to Stockholm’s 34, prompting loud celebrations from the bid team, which had earlier included Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. Milan and Stockholm were the only candidates left after four other cities Switzerland’s Sion, Japan’s Sapporo, Austria’s Graz and 1988 hosts Calgary in Canada had dropped out of the race with concerns over the size and cost of the event. Turkey’s Erzurum was cut by the IOC. The Games organisational budget is at $1.7 billion dollars according to the bid file but that does not include infrastructure projects.
