Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Last year the Netherlands said it would explore a bid for the 2018 or 2022 Youth Olympic Games. It was announced Wednesday that Rotterdam will be a candidate for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games.

Councillor Antoinette Lann (sports and recreation, arts and culture), called it an honour for Rotterdam to bid for the Youth Olympic Games saying it would be an inspiration for young people across the Netherlands and beyond.

She added that hosting the 2018 Youth Games fits in with Rotterdam's ambition to be the sports city of the Netherlands.

A bid for the 2018 Youth Games will be submitted to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) by October 15, 2012. The IOC will announce a shortlist of candidates in January 2013 and will select the host city for the 2018 Youth Games in June 2013.
