The COE confirms the technical agreement for the Winter Olympics project



Baqueira Beret is running as one of the venues for the Spanish bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics

(28-3-2022) The Spanish Olympic Committee (COE) has confirmed the technical agreement reached with Catalonia and Aragon for the celebration of the Winter Olympic Games in 2030. The document reflects an agreement on the distribution of venues.

The Spanish candidacy for the 2030 Winter Olympics continues. The COE has announced this Monday, through a letter sent to the President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez; that of the Catalan executive, Pere Aragonès; and to that of the Aragonese, Javier Lambán, the confirmation of the agreement reached by all the parties for the project of an Olympic candidacy for the 2030 Winter Games.

The different governments have agreed on a distribution of venues that, from the Generalitat of Catalonia, they have described as “the most competitive” to present to the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Now it remains for the three governments to ratify the technical agreement internally, so that later the technical commission with representatives of the three administrations can work on more specific aspects. Aragon has claimed the last days “balance” in the distribution to accept this distribution proposal, while Catalonia will have to determine in the coming days in which counties the referendum will finally be held.

In Catalonia the downhill, super-giant, giant and slamom alpine skiing events would be held (in La Molina-Masella); and those of snowboard and freestyle (Baqueira Beret). It remains to be seen if Boí Taüll will host ski touring. Ice hockey would be held at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona.

Aragón, for its part, would be the headquarters of the biathlon and cross-country skiing, since unlike Catalonia it does have facilities below 1,800 metres. It also aims to be the headquarters of curling (Jaca) and figure skating and long and short track speed (Zaragoza). The opening and closing ceremonies would be divided between Barcelona and Zaragoza.

Events such as bobsleigh, skeleton, luge, ski jumping and Nordic combined would be held outside of Spain, with a venue to be determined.
