Preparation for the large-scale sports forum in Belarus is already in full swing. Despite the Belarusian capital now having a good sports infrastructure, there is still a lot to do. In September 2017, a representative delegation of the European Olympic Committee will arrive in Minsk with an inspection to assess the work that is being carried out these days in Belarus.

Georgy Katulin, Director of the Foundation "Directorate of the Second European Games of 2019":
We must maximize our potential. We want the organization of any of the directions - ceremonies or television broadcasts - to become a school (or the university) for our people so they can join the world of great sport ruling now on the screens of Europe and the world.

Now Belarus is developing a mascot of the Games and the hotel and sports infrastructure is being prepared. A contest for the creation of musical compositions was announced. These compositions will sound at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2nd European Games.

Also, Belarus may change visa policy for guests of the Games.

Belarus will host the second European Olympic Games in June 2019.
