The IOC today released the report by the Evaluation Commission for the Games of the XXXII Olympiad. The report follows the Commission’s visits to the three Candidate Cities bidding to host the 2020 Summer Olympic Games: Istanbul (Turkey), Tokyo (Japan) and Madrid (Spain).
The Evaluation Commission, chaired by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) member in Great Britain and IOC Vice-President Sir Craig Reedie, spent four days in each Candidate City earlier this year (see dates below) to conduct on-site inspections and carry out an assessment of the cities’ Olympic Games projects.
The report is a technical analysis that is being provided to IOC members ahead of the 2020 Candidate Cities Briefing for IOC Members that will be held on 3 and 4 July at Beaulieu Convention Centre, Lausanne. During this meeting, the Candidate Cities will have the opportunity to present the technical aspects of their candidatures to the IOC members and answer questions.
“The Evaluation Commission made sure to produce a report that we feel is an accurate, objective and fair assessment of each of the three Candidate Cities,” said Commission Chairman Reedie. “We are indeed very pleased with the quality of each bid and it is clear that the IOC members will have a difficult choice to make this September in Buenos Aires.”
The election of the host city of the 2020 Olympic Games will take place on 7 September 2013 during the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Prior to the IOC members casting their votes, the Candidate Cities will make their final presentations, followed by a final report by Evaluation Commission Chairman. The city that obtains an absolute majority of votes will be elected.
