Salt Lake City files bid for 2034 Winter Olympic Games

Salt Lake City is currently the International Olympic Committee’s preferred and only candidate for the 2034 Games

SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City-Utah Committee for the Games (SLC-UT 2034) submitted its proposal to host the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games 2034 to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) today at the Utah State Capitol.

SLC-UT 2034 bid officials, Utah Gov. Spencer Cox and Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall were in attendance as the bid was transmitted to the IOC in Lausanne, Switzerland.

According to a press release from SLC-UT 2034, submitting the 2034 bid is another milestone in the IOC process. The IOC’s Future Host Commission is scheduled to visit Salt Lake City from April 9-13, and will use the Committee’s responses to the Preferred Host Submission to make a selection during the 142nd IOC Session in Paris this summer.

“Since the 2002 Games, sport has been a legacy in Utah that has helped define who we are,” said Fraser Bullock, SLC-UT 2034 president and CEO. “Looking ahead to 2034, we are uniting under a vision to truly elevate our communities, winter sport, and the Games experience.”

The proposal outlines the SLC-UT 2034 vision for the Games and includes a set of 32 annexes that include site plans, sustainability studies, and financial information.

“We are confident our Preferred Host Submission will showcase Salt Lake City-Utah as a unique and impactful host for the Olympic and Paralympic Movements, as well as for our Utah communities and our nation,” Bullock said.
