To conclude its first analysis, the Evaluation Commission believes that Brasov’s project offers the potential to stage the 3rd Winter Youth Olympic Games, subject to the clarification and strengthening of a certain number of areas of its project. A number of guarantees are missing. In particular, financial guarantees would need to be provided to ensure that the YOGOC budget is underwritten in terms of revenues from public authorities which represent approximately 80% of total revenues. Furthermore, the Main Media Centre (MMC) and accommodation plan would require further investigation to ensure YOG requirements would be met.
To conclude its first analysis, the Evaluation Commission believes Lausanne’s project to host the 3rd Winter Youth Olympic Games in 2020 is generally solid and innovative. The overall master plan for key venues is well balanced. However, it relies on the construction of the Youth Olympic Village and the renovation of the Malley Ice Centre (Ice Hockey/Figure Skating/Short Track). In addition, the Commission would need to fully understand the mechanisms to be put in place to ensure smooth operations of competition and training venues within the French national territory as proposed in the bid.
