Cortina and Are apply for 2019 World ChampsTweet
As of the May 1 deadline, FIS has received two applications as candidates for the Alpine World Ski Championships in 2019: Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy and Are, Sweden.
“FIS is happy to see that our highlight events continue to attract great interest by top organizers in several nations. The success of our 2013 events has provided a high level benchmark for these candidates to develop their event concepts,” said FIS President Gian Franco Kasper.
Following the submission and application fee, each candidate along with its national ski association, will receive the FIS questionnaire and prepare a detailed event concept by Sept. 1. The project plan must contain aspects such as plans for sports organization, accommodation, transportation, logistics, security, media, communications, marketing, ceremonies, the environment, spectator services and fan experience. Thereafter, the FIS Inspection Group members will review the dossiers together with the Candidates in dedicated sessions during the FIS Technical Committee Meetings in early October, 2013 in Zurich.
During the 49th International Ski Congress in Barcelona, the candidates will have a chance to make a final presentation to the FIS Council and the respective Technical Committees. They will also be able to present their case to the extended FIS family at dedicated exhibition stands at the Congress venue before the FIS Council selects the winner on June 5, 2014.
