Bids

With the format of being Europe and the Americas continuing, it was time for Europe turn and in a strange call of events, there was only one bid despite a proposal from Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom wanting to host the tournament but later dropping their bid. This left only the Swiss as they got the hosting rights unopposed on April 11, 1950.
