The 2022 Winter Olympics, formally called the XXIV Olympic Winter Games is a sporting event that the International Olympic Committee has yet to organise. The winning bid will be announced in the summer of 2015. The games are held from January 29 - February 21, 2022.

Possible bids[change | edit source]

Asia[change | edit source]

  • People's Republic of China Harbin, China: Li Zhanshu, governor of Heilongjiang, has said that "If we fail again for the 2018 Games, we are determined to win the 2022 Winter Games."[1] Harbin bid for the 2010 Winter Olympics, but did not make the short list.[2]
  • Kazakhstan Kazakhstan:[3] Kazakhstan considers to bid for the 2022 games, either in Almaty, the former capital, largest city, and financial centre, or divided between Almaty and Astana, the capital. [4] The Almaty alternative gives higher chance of winning, but the divided alternative is preferred by the government because of lower cost, since more arenas and hotels exist already. Kazakhstan hosted the 2011 Asian Winter Games, which can be seen as preparation for hosting the Winter Olympic Games in 2022. The Asian Winter Games were divided between Astana and Almaty. On November 29, 2011, Almaty was chosen to host the 2017 Winter Universiade.[5]
