Abstract

A growing phenomenon within the Olympic Games is the emergence of “Olympic houses” organised by various National Olympic Committees. Introduced by a number of nations, these temporary establishments operate in host cities during the time of Olympic Games. This research was a comparative investigation of Canada, Germany and Australia. The study traced the historical background of Olympic houses and the motives behind their establishment.
