Stockholm was to announce Monday its bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics, the Swedish Olympic Committee said.
"We will announce at three o'clock (14H00 GMT) that Stockholm will submit a bid," the committee spokesman Bjoern Folin said.
Folin said the vote in the German state of Bavaria Sunday rejecting Munich's Olympic bid had "nothing to do" with the Swedish decision.
The bid, supported by the Swedish Olympic Committee, raises scepticism in the country.
