The International Olympic Committee decided on Wednesday to pursue a targeted and unique dialogue with the French bid, ruling out the possibility of a single dialogue with France.


This should be the fourth time. After Chamonix in 1924, Grenoble in 1968 and Albertville in 1992, the French Alps are now in an excellent position to host the 2030 Winter Olympics. On Wednesday, a decision was expected from the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which was to determine the bid(s) that would enter into a targeted dialogue for the awarding of the 2030 Winter Olympics. And, according to our information, France is the only successful candidate. Only a catastrophe, a huge hiccup, could now prevent it from hosting this Olympiad.

The project, led by the two French regions Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, has ticked all the boxes from the beginning. The application file was submitted on time, on November 7, before the organizers took the famous 45-minute oral exam. This obviously convinced the IOC to choose the French Alps to host the 2030 Winter Olympics.

The opponents, however, were serious. Sweden and Switzerland had applied to host the athletes and had many assets. The Scandinavians had already missed the boat for the 2026 Olympics, which will finally take place in Milan-Cortina d'Ampezzo (Italy). But faced with the power of the French Alps, which proposed a project based on 95% of existing sites, ranging from Nice to Grand-Bornand via Courchevel Méribel, Val d'Isère and La Clusaz, these two countries, crazy about winter sports, were ultimately no match for them.

The final decision will be made official in July 2024 at the Paris session just before the Summer Olympic Games.
