Spain can’t agree on its bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics in the Pyrenees
The Spanish regional governments of Catalonia and Aragn have been unable to reach an agreement on a bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics in the Pyrenees, the Spanish Olympic Committee announced on Monday.
The committee said the local governments met but could not agree on a bid to host the Games near Barcelona.
Aragn’s government had recently complained that the bid was not well balanced and that Catalonia would get most of the events in their region.
The Olympic committee said it would continue to work with the Spanish government on alternatives to try to submit a bid to the International Olympic Committee.
Spain hosted the 1992 Summer Games in Barcelona, but failed in several other bids for the Games thereafter.
