Latvia's Government is due to hold a meeting tomorrow to formalise the country's support for the Stockholm Åre bid to host the 2026 Winter Olympic Games.
Latvian town Sigulda, located across the Baltic Sea, is set to provide facilities to host sliding events, including bobsleigh, luge and skeleton.
The country's Prime Minister, Krisjanis Karins, is due to chair a Cabinet meeting in Riga to formally offer the Government guarantees from Latvia required by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
They will hear a presentation from Education and Science Minister Ilga Suplinska, who is expected to tell the meeting they want to fix the costs Latvia will have to provide to help stage the Games.
The letter would include all basic and additional guarantees the Latvian Government is supposed to provide, The Baltic Times reported.
It will form part of the Candidature file due to be presented by Stockholm Åre 2026 to the IOC by April 12.
There remains doubt, however, over whether the Swedish Government will offer all the guarantees required.
These include underwriting the multi-million dollar security budget.
Sweden's Minister of Sport and Culture, Amanda Lind, addressed the IOC Evaluation Commission when it visited Stockholm last month but refused to confirm whether or not the Government would provide the guarantees.
The IOC Evaluation Commission is due to begin its inspection of Sweden's only rivals, Milan and Cortina d'Ampezzo, tomorrow.
Members of the IOC Evaluation Commission, led by Romania's Octavian Morariu, began arriving here today.
