Group Wants Disclosure of Munich 2022 Documents

NOlympia, the group that is opposing Munich’s bid for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, has called for the disclosure of relevant documents ahead of a referendum.

Europe Online reports the group’s spokespersons, Katharina Schulze and Christian Hierneis, said that the disclosure of all documents bid officials need to sign was necessary to allow locals “a complete and transparent view of the bid”.

The referendum on November 10 being held in Munich and other affected areas will determine whether Munich will bid for the 2022 Games. The city lost its bid for the 2018 Winter Games to PyeongChang, South Korea.

Bid applications must be sent to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) by November 14.

NOlympia opposes Munich hosting the Olympics for several reasons, reports Europe Online, ranging from finances to the environmental impact in the alpine region.
