The Minister of Sport and the Olympic Games, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, told AFP that the state was “to help” the candidacy of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur regions for the 2030 Winter Olympics, “although it is very clear that it is primarily driven by the two regions and by the sports movement”.

The two regions, on which the Alps are located, and the French Olympic and Paralympic sports committees “approached to consider” this candidacy, they announced last week. The two regional presidents, Renaud Muselier (ex LR) and Laurent Wauquiez (LR) had lunch at the Elysée the day after this announcement, also in the presence of David Lappartient, new president of the French National Olympic Committee (CNOSF) and LR president of the Morbihan departmental council, before the holding of an Olympic council by Emmanuel Macron. “They know they can count on us to help them with their application file, which will then be reviewed by the IOC Host Cities Commission by December 2023”added Amélie Oudéa-Castéra.
