- Unfortunately, it is so that we determine that it is not realistic to go in with an application for OS 2022, says Sten Nordin (M).
Why not ?
- We still need to go through the financial material and secure the economic calculations. Swedish Olympic COMMITTEE has made a serious and good work, but this is very complicated economy. Calculations change.
Sten Nordin (M) also mentions another explanation ;
- We now bet on 140,000 new homes . It is an incredibly demanding applications. We must now put our focus and our money there.
In a press release writing sports Mayor Regina Kevius (M):
"To host a Winter Olympics represents a significant investment in new sports facilities , such as the bobsled and luge. Such facilities are unfortunately no need for after the Olympics ."
Centre Party and the Liberal Party has previously gone out and said that it would be too expensive for Stockholm taxpayers to arrange an OS.
Earlier today even left the Christian Democrats a no. The party says it does not want to speculate with taxpayer money .
Thus it is clear that the City of Stockholm does not submit any Olympic bid .
