"The Evaluation Committee strongly believes this candidate can win the international competition and bring the event to Norway. All race courses have excellent profiles in a very compact race arena in Narvikfjellet close to the city center. This compactness is – for FIS ASWC– a considerable advantage related to transportation, accommodation, sport organization, athletes, sponsors, media and TV-production, as well as the overall ski festival including the ceremonies. The spectacular sea and mountain backdrop and the noticeable regional enthusiasm and support are x-factors we trust will offer unique experiences and pictures that are beyond expectations. Narvik has provided a solid financing plan, showing regional financing will and ability, making it possible to choose Narvik as candidate despite high investment needs."
Congratulations to Narvik and their co-workers.
Update: On Monday 19 November, the Board of Directors of the Norwegian Skiing Association decided to chose Narvik as its candidate for the Championship. Narvik is thus the official Norwegian candidate.
