Arena Lviv, which hosted three matches at Euro 2012, would be reused for the Olympics in Lviv's bid.

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -- The Ukrainian city of Lviv has submitted its bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Vilkul said Thursday the bid was submitted to the International Olympic Committee.

The bid projects about $10 billion in public and private investment to host the games. It will build upon infrastructure developed for last year's European soccer championship, including the stadium that hosted three matches.

Snow sports would take place in the Carpathian Mountains near the Romanian border, 110 miles to the south.

Also in the race are Stockholm; Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing and Zhangjiakou; and a joint bid by Krakow, Poland, and Jasna, Slovaki

The IOC will announce the official list of applicants on Friday. The host city will be selected in 2015.
