Dossier

The Milano Cortina 2026 Candidature was inspired by the IOC’s Agenda 2020 and presentation of ‘New Norm’ which clearly repositions hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games as an event that is more sustainable, more flexible and more efficient, both operationally and financially, whilst also unlocking more long-term value for host cities.

Games Delivery

Few territories in the world are able to concentrate so many skilled people in organising sporting events like Milano, Cortina and the Alpine region can.
These people and their skills and experience will be the backbone for the preparation of the 2026 Games.

New era, new philosophy, new approach

We believe in the 3 pillars of Agenda 2020 and we will take the opportunity to implement its recommendations thus showing for the first time its positive impact, following the measures of the New Norm.

– CREDIBILITY
– SUSTAINABILITY
– YOUTH

The New Norm

The New Norm acted as a game changer in our way to imagine how the Games will be organized.

Revised requirements

Olympic village

We will re-examine village models, including size and layout

Transportation

We propose to further combine & optimize exsisting public trasportation opportunities and new mobility solutions

Venue Sharing

Venues will be shared across multiple sports and federations, decreasing the number of facilities needed

Positive results so far

The IOC’s new philosophy has already produced significant financial savings in Olympic host cities:

Mainly thanks to the Agenda 2020 reforms, Pyeongchang 2018 produced a 55 million-dollars surplus.

Tokyo 2020 saved USD 2.2 billion in the venues budget and an additional USD 2.1 billion since the introduction of the New Norm.

Beijing 2022 has embraced Agenda 2020 and the New Norm by working more closely with the IFs and re-using 11 of the 12 competition and non competition venues from 2008 Summer Olympic Games.

Paris 2024 will adopt an event delivery approach while creating an optimized Olympic Village that, like the Venue Masterplan, will leave a great legacy for the city.

The 2026 Candidate Cities plan to use, on average, 80% of existing or temporary venues compared to the 60% used for the candidatures in 2018 and 2022.

The Initial Games operating costs projected by 2026 Interested Cities are, on average, 15% lower than those for 2018 and 2022.
