Monterrey bid for the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics
|XXIII Olympic Winter Games|
|NOC||Comité Olímpico Mexicano|
|Previous Games hosted|
Monterrey was the first city to bid for the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics. Monterrey had never bid for an Olympic Game prior to their effort to bid for the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics. The city did host several matches of the 1986 FIFA World Cup. In January 2011 Monterrey 2018 released a promotional video to promote their bid.
On November 18, 2011, the bid got the endorsement of Monterrey Mayor Fernando Larrazabal Breton.
Previous bids from other Mexican Cities
Monterrey expressed interest in hosting the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics but the Mexican Olympic Committee selected Guadalajara to go forward as Mexico's bid. They became a candidate but received an unfavorable evaluation in the IOC's evaluation report which was published before the February 2010 vote on the host city. Guadalajara withdrew their bid following this report. Nanjing was ultimately awarded the 2014 games.
