March 11 – Madrid’s streets have been adorned with posters promoting the Madrid 2020 Bid and its volunteer campaign by the Madrid City Council today, ahead of the International Olympic Committee Evaluation Commission’s visit from 18-21 March.

The volunteer campaign, complete with the slogan “Necesitamos tu manera de querer,” or “We Need Your Way of Loving,” targets more volunteers than the 20,000 already committed. The incentive for potential volunteers is the opportunity to play a part in the Olympic dream.

“Our way of loving is what binds us and together our love is stronger than anyone’s,” the council and Bid Committee said in a joint statement.

The Evaluation Commission conducted its visit of Tokyo last week and will also head to Istanbul later this month before the final decision as to which city will host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games is announced in Buenos Aires in September.
