REPLIES TO THE QUESTIONNAIRE FOR CITIES ASPIRING TO THE ORGANISATION OF THE XXI WINTER OLYMPIC GAMES IN 2010 Andorra la Vella, 29 th May 2002
1 Introduction a) What is your principal motivation for hosting the Olympic Winter Games?
Andorra is one of the oldest states in Europe. We have been an independent geographical, political and human entity for over ten centuries. The whole country is part of the Pyrenees. In recent years the country has registered spectacular economic and social growth. The population has multiplied by eight in fifty years (from 8,000 to the present 67,000). The 1993 Constitution defines us as a state of law, democratic and social. The moment has now come to make an important qualitative leap. The possibility of hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games will contribute to the development of our land, creating new infrastructures, strengthening our snow and ice sports and making the name of Andorra known around the world. The Olympic Games are a splendid opportunity to cooperate in a common project, useful in promoting this development and making it cohesive, ensuring that it is compatible with the requirements of sustainable growth and environmental respect. This will enable the capital of the State and all the territory to be configured as an integrated whole, able to welcome the more than 12 million visitors who come to us each year, some of whom take up 2.5 million days of skiing. The Pyrenees shall have the possibility to organise the Olympic Winter Games. This is the most important mountain range in Europe that has not yet had this opportunity. A small State such as Andorra, with the help and support of the General Council of the French Department of PyrĂŠnĂŠes Orientales, can take on this responsibility within parameters of rational and economic scale perfectly suited to the requirements of the organisation. b) What would be the impact and legacy for your City/Region of hosting the Olympic Winter Games?
Aside from the new sports installations and the undoubted promotion of winter sports, the new infrastructures will offer a better quality of life for the inhabitants of Andorra and our visitors. The construction of new roads, rapid connections to the airport and the building of a separate new public transport system will make Andorra a country combining sports competition at a high level, snow tourism and respect for the environment. We will carry the name of Andorra la Vella, the Principality of Andorra and the Pyrenees forward to an international projection up till now limited. The definition and application of priorities in public infrastructures resulting from the efforts made for the Olympic and Paralympic Games will help in sharing these rationally among all the Parishes. The diffusion of the Olympic values in sport and culture among all young people, will also be one of the principal contributions of the Games. Specifically, a clear commitment, so that youth and athletes from all over the world can enjoy the Winter Games in a setting that makes the environment a priority, and on the scale of a little State like ours, would be the greatest heritage for future generations of Andorra.
2 Concept a) Briefly describe your vision of the Olympic Winter Games in your City/Region ?
The criteria of territorial balance, service to the athletes, environmental sustainability, continued use after the Games and sobriety are the guidelines for the project. Apart from the sites located on Andorran territory, the candidacy of Andorra la Vella will also include a series of sites on French territory, specifically in the geographical region of Cerdagne-Capcir, which is part of the Department of Pyrénées Orientales and located at 75 kilometres from Andorra la Vella and at La Plagne in Savoy (following the Olympic Charter rule’s 38.2). The Olympic Stadium, a venue already covered by current sports planning, in which the ceremonies will take place, will be built around the central area of Andorra la Vella. Just next to it there will be the new Olympic Palace which will house the figure skating and short track speed skating trials. In the same zone, the present Sports Palace will be upgraded to house the men’s ice hockey competitions. The Olympic Village will be sited in a residential zone next to these venues. The MPC/IBC (Main Press Centre/International Broadcast Centre) will be only 3 kilometres away. The present Ice Palace in Canillo at 12 kilometres from Andorra will house the women’s ice hockey trials. All the alpine skiing, snowboard and freestyle events will be held at the ski resorts located at between 16 and 25 kilometres of the nerve centre of Andorra la Vella and these have the advantage of having a very large number of quality hotel rooms at the foot of the ski slopes, which will greatly enhance the mobility and comfort of athletes. The French geogr aphical zone of Cerdagne-Capcir, which has a notable spor ting tradition, will host the biathlon, cross-country skiing, ski-jumping, nordic combined, curling and speed skating competitions, using as a base the Olympic Village for 1,350 athletes which will be sited at Font Romeu profiting from a real estate development project already in existence. The biathlon and cross-country races will be held in the Calvet district at 15 kilometres from the Olympic Village. The ski-jumping hill will be built at the ski resort of Font Romeu-Pyrénées 2000. The present ice palace at Font Romeu will house the curling events. Just next door the covered ring for speed skating will be built on an already available site. With this last proposal, which is also very concentrated and is backed by the commitment of the General Council of Pyrénées Orientales also by the cooperation of the French Olympic Committee, Andorra opens up its candidacy to a neighbouring region with which it shares a common past and above all the pride and desire to make the magnificent massif of the Pyrenees better known. Moreover, Andorra’s own political system has always had two Heads of State, the Coprinces, of which one is the President of the French Republic. Finally the venue at La Plagne are proposed for the bobsleigh, luge and skeleton events. This solution is in line with the criteria of environmental sustainability and use of the venues after the Olympic Games.

3 Public opinion a) What is the general public opinion in your City/Region and country towards your project of hosting the Olympic Winter Games?
In a little country such as ours, where all the opinions are very much to hand, and therefore perception of the reality is immediate, the initial idea of bringing the Olympic Games to Andorra was received with surprise at first. However, with the decided action of the Government and the city in leading and encouraging this project, the initial surprise quickly became a genuine expression of ratification and support for the choice of Andorra la Vella. However, within the framework of a society that thinks and gives its opinions freely, some sectors have shown their unease with respect to the ability of the country to organise this event. Nevertheless, the polls show that a large part of Andorran public opinion, more than 80%, is in favour of the city of Andorra la Vella hosting the Olympic Winter Games in 2010 and 84% of the Andorran population believe that the holding of the Games would be beneficial for the country. With the communication media existing in Andorra (public television and radio, two daily newspapers and seven local FM broadcasting stations, three of them with connections to the neighbouring states), a policy of permanent information has been maintained which has contributed to generating a good opinion in relation to the preparation of the project. In the coming months there are plans for the presentation of the candidature to the different social and financial ambits of the country, in order to make it more widely known and obtain a still higher degree of acceptance by the people. b) What opposition is there to your project? Please detail.
It cannot be said that there is any organised opposition to the project. Until now, only one group, the P3M ecology group, through publication of an article in a local newspaper, has stated its opposition to the Olympic Games. This group is the only one among the various ecology groups existing in Andorra that has made a public statement.
4 Future candidacy committee Should you be accepted as a Candidate City to host the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, how would your Candidature Committee be structured and composed?
If the International Olympic Committee accepts the city of Andorra la Vella as a candidate for organizing the 2010 Olympic Winter Sports, work will be continued within the framework of the ANDORRA LA VELLA OLYMPIC FOUNDATION, hereinafter the Foundation. In this case the Foundation will function as the candidacy committee as provided for by article 5.1 of its statutes: “The object of the Foundation is to have Andorra la Vella accepted as a candidate city for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and in this case to prepare its candidacy as the site city, as well as any other activity which promotes, complements or is needful for the aforementioned goal. Likewise, if Andorra la Vella is selected as the site city, it shall have the aim of co-operating in setting up the Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games (OCOG)”. The governing bodies of the Foundation are the Patrons and the Technical Committee. At the head of the institution there are the two chairmen who are the Head of Government of Andorra and the Senior Mayor of Andorra la Vella and the vice-chairman who is the Chairman of the Andorran Olympic Committee. The Foundation also has the following patrons: the Minister for Sport; three representatives of the Comú of Andorra la Vella; one representative from each of the six other Comuns of Andorra; one representative from each and every political party and/or parliamentary group represented in the General Council (Parliament); one representative from the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services of Andorra in which the Group of Andorran Banks is also represented; one representative from the Hotels’ Association; three representatives from the Andorran Olympic Committee; one representative from the Andorran Ski Federation; one representative from the Andorran Ice Federation and one representative from the Association of Andorran Ski Resorts (Ski Andorra). The Technical Committee of the Foundation which has drawn up the answers to this questionnaire will also be responsible for drawing up the dossier for the candidacy. The present professional team will be increased by the specialist staff required and the work will be structured in the following spheres of action: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Institutional and political sphere Venues and sports organisation Olympic Villages Logistics (accommodation, transport and security) Administration and finance Marketing Media Technology Environment Ceremonies
5 Commitment of the government What is the status of support by the national, regional, local government and city authorities to your bid for the Olympic Winter Games and to the organisation of the Olympic Winter games in your City/Region?
Various authorities are active in the administration of the Principality of Andorra: general executive power is held by the Government of Andorra, local executive power is held by the Comuns of the seven Parishes which are real territorial units with a high degree of autonomy, since their competence and the territory which each of them administers go beyond what is normally known as a municipality and are closer to being an autonomous federal unit. Since the beginning of the project, the commitment of the Government to the candidacy of Andorra la Vella, the country’s capital which holds 30% of the population, has been total. All the Comuns of the seven Parishes have joined this initiative. The political affiliations of these seven Comuns include the whole range of parties and political groups in the country. With regard to the trials which would take place in France, the candidacy has the full backing of the General Council of Pyrénées Orientales and the various municipalities of the geographical zone in which the various competitions would take place. The French Government has given too its verbal agreement and we are currently waiting for its official support. The Government of Andorra and the town of Andorra la Vella have together taken the lead in the candidacy project in this first phase, providing their technical teams to draw up the dossier. The corr esponding technical experts have also cooperated in the case of sporting sites located in the Department of Pyrénées Orientales. The Government plans to include in its budgets, by means of investment plans over several years, all the budgetary headings related to the infrastructures required for the Olympic project. The town planning schemes at present being drawn up by local administrations as well as the Government’s territorial plan have been adapted to the needs presented by this project.
6 Legal aspects a) Are there any legal obstacles to the organisation of the in your country?
Olympic Winter Games
From the legal point of view there is currently no obstacle to organizing the Olympic Winter Games in our country. The Government accepts all the requirements of the Olympic Charter. b) Do you envisage the implementation of any new laws to facilite the organisation of the Olympic Winter Games?
If necessary the Andorran Government could propose new laws to ensure the smooth running of the Games. c) Are there any existing laws in your country in relation to sport?
The Law on Sports has been in force since 30 June 1998. This law is put into practice through regulations such as the Regulations of the Legal Commission for Sports of 12 July 2000. d) Are they any laws in your country, or other means, in order to combat doping in sport?
• The Law on Sports fixes and regulates the necessary controls for preventing athletes using products not authorized by the medical profession and sporting organizations, in accordance with the regulations laid down by the International Olympic Committee. • The Law on Health empowers the Government to draw up general regulations for the control of medicaments, following the directives of the European Union with regard to the technical procedure. • The Law on the Customs Code prohibits the placing in circulation, the exporting or re-exporting of fraudulent goods. • The Andorran Constitution incorporates the universally recognized principles of International Law into the Andorran legal system. e) Have the relevant authorities in your country signed an agreement with the World Anti-doping Agency (WADA)? Does your country currently apply an antidoping code?
• In 2002 Andorra signed up to the Council of Europe’s Convention against doping. • The Convention recognizes the World Anti-doping Agency. Andorra is a member of the Council of Europe and accepts all the regulations laid down by the WADA. • A program for sporting cooperation against doping has been approved by the Higher Sports Councils of Spain (CSD) and the Government of Andorra and is now awaiting ratification. • Samples taken in Andorra by authorized doctors will be analysed by the Madrid laboratory recognized by the CSD. • Andorra applies the Anti-doping Code of the Olympic Movement.
Question 7: see annexes, Chart I, Transport Infrastructure, Pag 39 Question 8: see annexes, Map B, Page 35
9 Airports a) Which is the main international airport you intend to use for the Olympic Winter Games? State your reasons.
The principal airport for the Olympic Games would be Barcelona – El Prat, at a distance of 199 Km from the city centre of Andorra la Vella and therefore from the Olympic Area of the Valira, formed by the Central Olympic Village, the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Palace and the Sports Palace. The distance from the mountain skiing installations and the MPC/IBC is 216 Km and 196 Km respectively. During last year a total of twenty-one million passengers used these installations. The choice of Barcelona – El Prat is founded principally on the large number of links available at that airport: 135 direct flights (non-stop) with European destinations (35 of which are Spanish cities), and 18 direct (non-stop) with destinations throughout the world. Furthermore, the airport has recognised experience in the organization of large-scale international events, both sporting and otherwise. In this context we would mention the organization last March of the European Union Council Summit Meeting and the 1992 Olympic Games, during which terminal C was assigned to the exclusive use of the Olympic Family. With the modernisation of the Andorra – la Seu d’Urgell airport (located 27 Km from Andorra la Vella city centre and scheduled for renovation during 2004-2005) the Andorran project envisages establishing an air shuttle between Barcelona and the local airport using aircraft with a maximum capacity of 85 seats, for all the members of the Olympic Family. There will also be a second shuttle service connecting with the secondary Games location La Plagne, through Chambéry-Aix airport (118 Km from La Plagne and handling 122,000 passengers per year). Due to the geographical situation of the Principality of Andorra, the future Organizing Committee would also use the services of Toulouse – Blagnac airport, at 188 Km from Andorra la Vella city centre. During last year a total of five million passengers used this airport. b) What is the current number of international gates and how many supplemental international gates will be provided at Games time?
Barcelona – El Prat airport has 3 terminals and 52 gates (11 in terminal A, 22 in B and 19 in C). Within the organization of the airport the concept of an international gate or international terminal is not used. At the moment, the terminals are assigned to Airlines or to groups of airline companies. At present work is under way for the construction of a new runway and a new terminal (scheduled to finish in 2004). No difficulty is envisaged in Barcelona Airport being able to destine the necessary number of gates to serve the different groups of the Olympic Family during the Olympic Games 2010.
10 Environment a) Assesment of current environmental conditions in your City.
The environmental infrastructures at present in place and working are being adapted to the current needs of the population of Andorra. In order to give the country venues conceived for the current and future needs of the population and the millions of tourists who visit our mountains, the Ministry for the Environment has set in motion various plans for managing water courses and waste products which will enable us to recover an environment worthy of a high mountain zone. b) Assesment of the environmental impact of staging the Olympic Winter Games in your City.
Our vision of the organization of the Olympic Winter Games is based on the maximum use of already existing venues. Our country contains considerable skiable areas which are used to hosting high level sporting events and already have the venues installed. In cases where the organization of some trials would require the building of venues with considerable environmental impact, use has been made of already existing sporting venues outside Andorra. Moreover, the signing of the European Convention on Landscapes planned for this year and adherence in 2000 to the Bern Convention, as well as the existing regulations on impact surveys, are good guarantees for the conservation of the environment in Andorra. Great importance will be given to environmental communication and raising of awareness. Last but not least, a Unit for Environmental Management will be set up with the main aim of minimizing the impact of the Olympic Games on the environment. c) Details of on-going environmental projects and their organisation.
Various environmental projects are currently being carried out, among others: • Scheme for cleaning up the water courses: This was passed by the Government in 1996; works on the infrastructures are currently under way and the definitive installations will be working early in 2004. • National Plan for Waste Management: Passed by the Government in January 2001, this plan provides for a Waste Treatment Centre and the progressive implementation of selective collection in line with European directives. The Waste Treatment Centre is due to begin working in 2004. • Project for implementing an air quality vigilance network: This project began in 2001 and provides for the setting up of various fixed stations for measuring the quality of air. The network will be operational in 2005.

12 Dates of the olympic winter games State your proposed dates to host the XXI Olympic Winter Games in 2010 and specify your reasons.
The proposal for celebrating the Olympic Winter Games in 2010 is based on the period between Friday 5th February and Sunday 21st February. The Games would take place over a period of 17 days. The Inauguration Ceremony would take place on the first day of trials and the Closing Ceremony on the last day of competitions. The proposal to celebrate the Olympic Games over 17 days, instead of the 16 provided for by rule 36 of the « Olympic Charter », will be submitted for approval to the Executive Commission for the IOC. The choice of the month of February for celebrating the Games is based on the following criteria: • It is the suitable time in the winter sports season with regards to the athletes’ preparation. • It fits perfectly into the calendars of the International Federations. • The best climatic, meteorological and snow conditions in Andorra occur in this period. • It coincides with the winter school holidays. • It is the ideal time in the interest of the spectators and major TV channels. • February was also chosen for Nagano 1998, Salt Lake City 2002 and Turin 2006. The proposal for a period of 17 days answers our desire to offer the most suitable competition calendar for sportspersons, spectators, journalists and TV audiences, as well as optimising the number and use of sports installations, as carried out at Salt Lake and planned for Turin. The proposed dates for celebrating the Paralympic Winter Games are from Thursday 4th March to Saturday 13th March 2010, including the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

15 The olympic village and media village a) Describe your concept for the athletes and media villages, as well as your plans for their post-Olympic use.
We propose a system of accommodation for the athletes based on the Central Olympic Village, one in Font Romeu and tourist residences in La Plagne and El Tarter. The Central Olympic Village will be situated in the heart of Andorra la Vella, forming part of the La Valira Olympic Area and also including the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Palace and the Sports Palace. This space is presently undeveloped and available, belonging to one owner with whom an agreement has been reached in principle. The ComĂş of Andorra la Vella is drawing up its General Urban Development Plan, considering suitable space limitations and urban zoning to allow the construction of the residential complex. The complex will consist of 400 apartments with 2, 3 and 4 double rooms of at least 12 square meters. This will allow 2,500 athletes and officials to be accommodated very comfortably. The overall design of the Village contemplates the elimination of urban and architectural barriers. For this reason it will also serve as a Paralympic Village. All installations, spaces and services are planned in accordance with IOC directives and the requirements of the NOCs. At Font Romeu, another Olympic Village will be created to help acclimatize to altitude and avoid travelling from the Central Olympic Village, 75 km away. It will be built at a site called La Pleta de Font Romeu, for which the present owner has already been authorized to build a residential complex. This Village will accommodate up to 1,350 athletes and officials for the disciplines of cross country, biathlon, jumping, speed skating, curling and Nordic combined. In El Tarter there will be 650 spaces for athletes and officials for Alpine skiing using the framework of existing tourist complexes. In the Area of La Plagne, there will be 500 spaces for athletes and officials in various existing hotels and apartments. The wide range of existing hotel structures means that we do not have to build an Olympic village specially for the media. They will be accommodated in already existing hotels and apartment complexes reserved for their use, lying between 0 and 10 km from the center of Andorra la Vella. b) Specify how and by whom the athletes and media villages will be financed.
The Central Olympic Village will be built at the initiative of the landowner as a building project destined for the property market. The OCOG would rent them for a period of one year before releasing them to the purchasers. The Olympic Village at Font Romeu will also be financed by the landowner who will carry out the corresponding building project. At El Tarter and La Plagne existing hotels and apartments will be used.
Question 16: see annexes, Chart III, Accommodation, Page 43 Quetion 17: see annexes, Chart IV, Transports, Page 45
18 Security a) Who will have ultimate responsibility for security during the Olympic Winter Games?
The Ministry of the Interior, represented by a senior executive, will have the maximum authority and be the sole and final body in charge of security during the Olympic Winter Games. This responsibility will be made effective through the creation of the Olympic Security Committee (OSC), which will have as its purpose to establish a security system, respecting the sporting activities and the Olympic spirit, through the use of the different resources available (public and private, human and material). The OSC will be presided over by the representative of the Ministry of the Interior, and will be the axis of integration of the actions of the State and of OCOG in all phases of the process: planning, coordination and management. Due to the configuration of Andorra, a security model will be defined based on collaboration between the various Andorran security forces and those of the two neighbouring states, France and Spain. This exceptional situation will be accompanied by the appropriate legislative framework, allowing optimum development of the tasks entrusted to the different bodies, whether Andorran, French or Spanish, public or private. b) What security resources do you plan to provide for the Olympic Winter Games?
The key tool in defining and operating the different security services will be the General Security Plan (GSP). The OSC will be responsible for preparing, updating and handling the GSP. The methodology used in preparing this document will start with an assessment of each risk, natural or otherwise, that could affect the general infrastructures, sports and all those involved in the Games. Then the most ideal type of intervention will be attributed to each risk (prevention, dissuasion, information, etc.), and finally the optimum means will be assigned to each risk/intervention situation in the light of the following criteria: â€œsavoir faireâ€?, experience and cost/benefit ratio. The organization of the Olympic Games will seek complementary roles for public and private means, particularly through incorporating any measures of a non-human type which comply with the three criteria given in the above paragraph. Depending on the collaboration agreements to be signed with France and Spain, the following bodies would contribute with their forces: State Police, information/intelligence services, armed forces, fire brigades, health and emergency services, private and personal security of the OCOG. In summary, the GSP will construct a global system to guarantee total security, in a discreet but effective form. This system will integrate public and private forces from three states under a single model of management and operation, subject to a unified chain of command, recognised and with sufficient power. It must be added that the citizen security existing in Andorra is one of the values most appreciated by our visitors. The fact that Andorra only has two means of access, makes safety measures more effective.
19 Experience What experience have you had in hosting sports events and multi-sports events? Please list a maximum of ten major events over the last ten years indicating dates.
The Principality of Andorra is the Pyrenean country where winter sports are a deeply engrained tradition among its inhabitants and this tradition has enabled us to create a considerable potential in the form of competition slopes recognized by the ISF, skiing venues, an Ice Palace, hotel rooms and a whole infrastructure well known in the world of tourism for its quality and enjoyed by the millions of tourists who visit us each year. The people of Andorra has always been willing to host the most varied sporting events and, indeed, every year receives elite national teams coming to the country for training sessions. For more than 27 years the Andorran Olympic Committee, the various sports federations and other bodies have been organizing annually numerous sporting events, both national and international, of which we shall highlight the following: • 21 to 25/05/1991: 4th Games of the Small States of Europe. A multisports competition supported by the IOC, the European Olympic Committees and the Government of Andorra, organized by the Andorran Olympic Committee. • February 1992: Albertville Olympic Games: Bobsleigh competition at La Plagne • 13 and 14/03/92: International Masters Cup. Veteran alpine skiing competition. • Since 1993: The Borrufa Trophy: International alpine skiing competition for children in Categories I and II which takes place yearly on the slopes at Arcalís. • 1993 and 1997: Arrival and departure of a stage in the “Tour de France de cyclisme”. • 04/02/95 to 10/02/95: 2nd Winter Olympic Games Days for European Youth. Junior I, organized by the Andorran Olympic Committee. • 05 to 15/04/97: World Senior Ice Hockey Championship 1997, Pool D. • 23 to 26/03/98: International Masters Criterium (World Veteran Alpine Skiing Championship), Soldeu – El Tarter. • 1999, 2000, 2001: Arrival and departure of a stage in the “Vuelta ciclista a España” • 2000: 1st Andorran National Open Championship of figure skating (Andorra, France, Spain) organized by the Andorran Ice Sports Federation. • 2000, 2001, 2002: World Trial motorcycle Championship. • 2000, 2001, 2002: Snowgames (International competitions in new ice sports)
20 Candidature budget Should you be accepted as a Candidate City to host the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, describe how and by whom your candidature will be financed. What is your budget in USD for phase I (Application) and phase II (Candidature)
The institution created with the name Andorra la Vella Olympic Foundation, which has been described in question 4 of this questionnaire, will be responsible for financing the work necessary to meet all requirements of the IOC, both for the first and second phases. The Foundation’s income will come from contributions from patrons and various collaborating companies (banks, commercial chains, hotels, etc.). Four categories of collaborating companies have been stipulated according to the size of their contribution. The budget that the Fundació Andorra la Vella Olímpica will allocate to the two first phases of the selection process for the seat of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, as well as its origin, are detailed below:
21 Government Contributions How will your Games budget be structured (private and/or public financing)?
The budget for the Olympic Games, handled by OCOG, is fully financed by contributions from the private sector. The OCOG budget does not include any section destined to the development of new infrastructures, whether for transport, sports, technology or accommodation. In consequence, the public authorities will be responsible for the financing and execution of projects of general infrastructures, as well as the construction of new sports facilities. Private initiative will take on carrying out of residential projects to be used as Olympic Villages. At this time there is already available an undertaking by the Government of Andorra to supply all the security, medical and customs services without any cost to OGOC. Specifically, the Government has assigned a special section of the budget for 2010 to meet extraordinary expenses in matters of security. At the same time, with regard to sports facilities already existing, the various public authorities that own these installations have already declared their willingness to assign these during the period of the Olympic Games, with the express intention also of assigning those newly built. Specifically, the non-OCOG budget is structured as follows:
22 Ocog revenue generating potential In addition to the TV revenues and TOP revenues you will receive from the IOC, what other revenue do you expect to be able to generate?. Please indicate source and estimated amount.
The income which the candidature Committee expects to raise is based on the Marketing Plan for the 2010 Olympic Games and other actions to be developed. The Marketing Plan provides for the following sections: • Local sponsors. An agreement is proposed between the OCOG, the Andorran Olympic Committee and the French Olympic Committee in order to treat all Andorran and French territory as the field of action for sponsors. This could reach a population of some sixty million inhabitants. • Merchandising-Licences. The same criteria as above. • Official suppliers. Agreements are expected to be made with companies that usually participate in great events and competitions providing services and products. We are thinking of major brands with common interests in the Andorran and French markets. • Ticket sales. We expect to place 1,150,000 tickets on sale with an 80% level of occupation. We are also considering complementary programmes relating to issuing Olympic coins, raising donations and sales of assets after the Games. Financial forecast (figures in millions of USD)
