Forming a Joint Committee: A Step Toward the Dream

To actualize this grand vision, the Indian government and the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) are set to establish a joint committee in the imminent weeks.

Exploring a Multifaceted Approach for 2036 Olympics Bid

One pivotal aspect of India’s bid to host the Olympics is the flexibility it offers. The bid is not confined to a solitary city; it can encompass a “multi-nation” proposal, be a regional effort, or even feature multiple cities. This versatile approach allows India to showcase its diverse and multifaceted culture, making it an alluring prospect for the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Early Communication with the International Olympic Committee

Prior to Prime Minister Modi’s landmark announcement at the 141st IOC Session’s Opening Ceremony in Mumbai, India had already initiated communication with the International Olympic Committee (IOC). This preliminary step established the groundwork for what promises to be an exciting and challenging journey.

The Informal Meeting at the 141st IOC Session

Amid the grandeur of the 141st IOC Session, IOA President PT Usha and Sports Minister Anurag Thakur seized the opportunity to engage in an “informal catch up” with IOC members. This informal meeting served as a crucial platform for fostering relationships and strengthening India’s position in the Olympic bid process, building international rapport.

A Marathon Before the Olympics

The endeavor to host the Olympics is monumental, and India faces numerous significant milestones on its journey. Jacqueline Barrett, the Future Olympic Games Hosts Director, and Marie Sallois, the IOC’s Director of Corporate and Sustainable Development, have laid out the roadmap for India.

Barrett highlighted that, besides India, the IOC had received interest from a “double-digit” number of other countries. Although it’s early days for India’s bid, the ambition is unmistakable, demonstrating the nation’s commitment to this extraordinary venture.

A Patient Wait for the Decision

In the case of the 2036 Olympics, the timeline for selecting the host is not etched in stone. According to Barrett, the final decision might not be reached until 2030. This extended deliberation period allows for in-depth evaluation, ensuring that the choice made is truly the best for the Olympic movement.

Continuous Dialogue Phase: A Critical Step

The IOC enters into a “continuous dialogue phase” with a city or region once they express their desire to host the Olympics. This ongoing conversation isn’t confined solely to the 2036 Games; it might encompass future editions as well. This stage allows potential host cities to gauge their commitment and explore the possibilities thoroughly, demonstrating their readiness.

Meeting the IOC’s Assurances

Before a country can officially secure the privilege of hosting the Olympics, it must provide the IOC with more than 20 assurances. These assurances encompass a wide range of aspects, including infrastructure development, rental contracts, security provisions, and guarantees for government services. Meeting these criteria is a testament to a country’s readiness to embrace the Olympic spirit and execute the games flawlessly.

With resolute dedication, India aims to shine brightly on the Olympic stage, making history in the process.
