On June 14, the Canadian Olympic Committee announced that the 2020 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, will be the opening ceremony of the next wave of Olympic Games in 2020.
The announcement came just weeks after the IOC announced the IOC will host the 2024 Summer Games in Tokyo, Japan, and the 2024 Winter Games at the Olympic Village in Lake Placid, New York.
There are still many questions about the future of the 2020 Olympic Games.
In the coming months, there will be an extensive review of the bid process, the selection of host cities and host cities, and a number of other issues, including how to handle security, as well as the host cities’ role in hosting the Games, the IOC said.
The Games will be held on four continents, with an average capacity of more than 80,000 spectators, but the IOC has already decided to hold the Games in two major cities, London and Vancouver.
What is the IOC’s bid process?
The IOC’s 2020 bid process is largely similar to the way the U.S. bid process was structured in 2015.
In addition to an initial bid of $1 billion, the host country must submit a bid proposal to the IOC by January 31, 2021, with the winner getting a contract worth $1.9 billion.
In exchange, the U,S.
must provide the IOC with a detailed plan to ensure the Games will provide a “full and credible” experience for its citizens, including the right balance of infrastructure, transport and services, according to the bid guidelines.
That process can take up to four years.
The bid process also requires the host city to conduct an assessment of its hosting capabilities, infrastructure, services, and facilities.
There is also a process for the host nation to decide whether to participate in the Games or not.
The IOC will not host the Games if a host country’s infrastructure fails, which would be the case for Rio de Janeiro and Seoul, the latter two cities hosting the Winter Olympics in 2020 and 2024.
If host cities decide to not participate in an Olympic Games, they are allowed to take steps to prepare for the Games.
Host city officials will be required to inform the IOC of any measures they have taken to improve their venues and facilities to ensure they are ready for the Olympic Games and ensure safety and security of their residents, IOC officials said.
Host cities also must consider how to ensure that the Games are held in safe, clean and open spaces.
A host city can be subject to criminal and civil charges if it does not meet all these criteria.
The host country has until the end of March to submit its bid to the IAC.
If the host is successful in getting the bid approved, the bid committee will select the host in late January 2021.
Who will bid for the 2024 Olympic Games?
The bid committee is made up of the IOC and the host of the Games — in this case, the Olympic Committee of Canada — with each country also making its own recommendation to the committee.
The Canadian Olympic committee is the sole candidate for the 2022 Winter Games, which will be hosted in South Korea.
The committee has chosen the cities of Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver to host the games.
The selection of the 2022 host cities has been delayed because of the Zika virus pandemic.
