Capital of XXIV Olympic Winter Games will be announced July 31, 2015 at IOC Congress in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).
On rough estimates, Winter Olympics 2022 in Almaty will cost $ 8.7 billion, if it is elected the host, president of the National Olympic Committee of Kazakhstan Republic Temirkhan Dosmukhambetov told news agency sport.zakon.kz.
“We are negotiating with the IOC on their taking part of the expenses. If they do it, taking into account the already available infrastructure for major international competitions in the city that meet international standards, the costs will be smaller. I think they will make 7.8 billion dollars “, – he said.
Dosmukhambetov noted that this sum comprises not only the hosting of the Olympics, but also preparations for them, the construction of the remaining sports facilities, upgrading of the the city’s infrastructure for the games.
“All these facilities will remain in our use, for Almaty residents and visitors. It is unlike the Sochi 2014 Olympics, whose facilities were built from scratch, “- the NOC president reassured.
