If Salzburg loses its bid for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games Munich is planning to step in to bid for the 2018 Games.
Michael Vesper, secretary general for the German Olympic Committee, said Munich would be their city of choice for 2018 if Salzburg loses, reports AFP.
He said, “everyone dreams of hosting the Olympic Games, but you have to be realistic and wait to see what happens regarding 2014 first. If Salzburg is named host of the 2014 Olympics then we will kiss our 2018 candidature goodbye”.
Salzburg is bidding against PyeongChang and Sochi. The announcement on a 2014 host city will be made in Guatemala City on July 4.
