Who organises the Olympic Games?
The host city’s Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (OCOG) is in charge of organising this great event.
When the International Olympic Committee (IOC) selects a city to stage the Games, the city and the National Olympic Committee (NOC) of the host country create the OCOG which will organise the Games.
From the moment it is created, seven years before the Games, the OCOG works closely with the IOC.
