Munich 2018 Enjoys Impressive Support

Munich’s bid for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games has received support from 88 per cent of German people, according to a recent independent survey conducted by global market research group Ipsos.

The study involved 3,000 people and found that more than 87 per cent of those polled expressed support for the involvement of companies in sponsoring the bid, despite the global financial downturn, said a press release.

Willy Bogner, CEO of the Munich 2018 bid committee said, “this is a very pleasing survey for Munich 2018 at such an early stage of our campaign. However, there is a long way to go and we will work hard to continue explaining the major benefits of the Games to the people of Munich and Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, and all of Germany so that we can continue to enjoy this excellent support”.
