Munich city council has agreed to make 490,000 euro available for the first phase of a possible bid for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Another 60,000 is to be spent on a feasibility study, an international technical consultation, and for an expert in the environment, along with other measures to be taken.

A formal application is to be sent to the German Olympic Committee by December 8, 2007 and the committee will them make a decision as to whether Munich will be Germany’s representative in its bid for the 2018 Winter Games.

DPA reported last August that Munich’s bid will be a compact one with three sports clusters. The city of Munich will stage all the ice events, Garmish-Partenkirchen all the snow sports and Koenigsee’s sports will include the bobsled and skeleton.

Olympic Coordinator Wilfrid Spronk said hosting the 2018 Games would cost about 30 million euros. Write or read comments about this article
