Sion has been nominated as Switzerland's candidate for the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Sion has been nominated as Switzerland's candidate for the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. The decision will still have to be ratified by the Swiss Parliament of Sport, the supreme body of Swiss Olympic, at an extraordinary meeting scheduled for April 11.

Sion was the only candidate left after the Swiss canton of Graubünden last month voted decisively against bidding in a referendum. It will be Sion's fourth bid for the Winter Olympics. The Swiss Olympic Executive Council took the decision to endorse Sion following two reports produced by its 2026 Taskforce who have been evaluating whether they should bid or not.
