IOC Receives Candidature File From Three 2014 Youth Games Cities

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced Friday it has received the Candidature Files of the three cities bidding to host the 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games in 2014 – Guadalajara, Mexico, Nanjing, China and Poznan, Poland.

All three cities delivered their files before the deadline of 5 p.m. in Lausanne.

The Candidature Files will be analyzed by an IOC Evaluation Commission, and a report will be prepared to be published and submitted to the IOC Executive Board and the IOC members before the election of the host city in February 2010 at the 122nd IOC Session in Vancouver.

The IOC said it will not release the Candidature Files, but has informed the Candidate Cities that they may make their files public if they wish.
