Olympics-Stockholm won't seek 2026 Winter Games - Social Democrats

STOCKHOLM, April 26 (Reuters) - The Swedish capital Stockholm has decided not to apply to host the 2026 Winter Olympics, with the Social Democrats, the largest in a four-party coalition currently running the city, citing a lack of broad political support and uncertainty over costs.

A feasability report in late January was initially positive on hosting the games.

But with only the Social Democrats coming out in support, the idea has now been shelved, the party said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, we are alone in taking a clear stand in supporting hosting the Olympics at the moment,” Social Democrat politician Karin Wanngaard said.

The Social Democrats said that the city may instead seek to host the 2030 games. (Reporting by Philip O‘Connor; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
