Planica 2017

Planica 2017
The President of  Ski Association of Slovenia Mr. Tomaž Lovše, has on Monday officialy announced the candidacy for the FIS Nordic World Championships  in Planica for the year 2017. The working group, which consists of: Janez Bukovnik, the president and Matija Vojsk, Andraž Kopač, Primož Finžgar, Mitja Praznik, Ljubo Jasnič, Jure Žerjav, Jelko Gros  and Tomi Trbovc, has prepared a study for the candidacy  and will perform all the necessary measures for the formal candidacy.

Ministry of Education and Sport has partaken a lot of effort in restoring the former glory in Planica. The plan is to upgrade Planica into a modern center for the Nordic disciplines.

We think this is the perfect opportunity  for the candidacy of the FIS Nordic World Championships. Slovenia has a long standing tradition in organizing events in Nordic skiing and loyal fans to support them.
