The FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2015 took place between 18 February and 1 March 2015 in Falun, Sweden. This was the fourth time the event is held there, having previously been held there in 1954, 1974 and 1993. In 1980, one World Ski Championship race was held there as well, to make up for its exclusion from the Olympic Games the same year.

Host selection[edit]

At the International Ski Federation (FIS) Council meeting in November 2007, a Candidates project concept was highlighted for use.[1] Candidacy submission was 1 May 2009 along with the registration fee and training days in article 5 of the FIS World Championships Organization Rules.[1] Each candidate and its National Ski Association will have instructions and a detailed questionnaire provided by the FIS that will be due on 1 September 2009.[1] Candidates respond in a simple text format that will serve as the working document where an FIS Inspection Group will use for discussion purposes.[1] Group members will meet with the candidate at mutually convenient opportunity to review the project area that falls under their responsibility.[1] This should take place in conjunction with another event or World Cup inspection where possible to reduce costs and multiple trips.[1] FIS Technical Committee members will have a working meeting in the fall of 2009 with each candidate and inspection group to review the project.[1] A final report will be submitted in spring 2009 by the Inspection Group and the National Ski Association and FIS Council.[1]

Finalists[edit]

The four finalists who submitted were those who lost out on the previous championships in 2008.[2]
