Main Document

The 2018 Winter Paralympics, officially known as the XII Paralympic Winter Games, will be held from 9 to 18 March 2018 in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and is an international winter sports athletic event that has yet to be organized by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).

The International Olympic Committee (IOC), received 3 bids on October 15, 2009.

Pyeongchang launched its third consecutive bid for the Winter Olympic & Paralympic Games, which ultimately won.

Munich also launched a bid to host.

Annecy launched a bid but failed to gain public support from locals. Their bid ultimately just received seven votes.

Only these three cities made bids for these games and all three became candidates.

The cities of Annecy, France in the French Alps, and Munich, Germany (host of the 1972 Summer Olympics), were also vying for the hosting rights to the 2018 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.

All 3 applicants were selected as Candidate cities on June 22, 2010. The winning bid was announced on July 6, 2011 at the 123rd IOC Session in Durban, South Africa.

On October 29, 2013, the new logo emblem was revealed for the 2018 Winter Paralympic Games in preparation of the handover from Sochi on March 16, 2014.
