The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Finals in Andorra affected international media by up to 17.2 million euros. This news was announced today during a press conference following the World Cup which was held in Andorra in March 2019. The press conference was attended by the Head of the Andorran Government, Xavier Espot, the Mayor of Canillo and President of the Organizing Committee, Josep Mandico, the general director of the organizing committee, Conrad Blanch, and the VP of the Federation of Alpine Ski, Patrick Toussaint.
According to the participants at the press conference, Andorra will strive to accept the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Finals in 2023 (the application must be submitted on July 1 and the answer will be given in October) and plans to submit an application for the right to hold the World Cup in 2027.
“Investments made in recent years should continue to serve,” said Conrad Blanche.
Xavier Espot, in turn, said that such events are very important for the status of Andorra and recalled that recently “Andorra has become a country of residence for many high-level athletes.”
