  3. IT'S DEMOCRACY TIME! Yes, don't panic, this is just the preview of our latest Olympic logo competition. Traditionally, you get a winter & summer city dumped on you by me, but this time, the competition's most important aspect is up & down to YOU! For the first time ever, the cities we use will be determined by vote, in the closest thing the Olympics have had to a normal bidding process since 2013. It's not a free-for-all, there's a shortlist, and the rest of this post is their names, a picture, and a Wikipedia link to each city. The summer shortlist is at the top, the winter cities are below. They are separate polls. Because democracy only ever goes so far in global sport, this will run as a British election - one vote per person, most votes wins, simples. It's not the comp, just selecting the cities. DO NOT SUBMIT ANY LOGOS HERE. But do feel free to support your favourite. Like all the best IOC shortlists, we got 5 candidates for each one, Here they are, the summer cities: ----------------------- AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amsterdam AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auckland BIRMINGHAM, GREAT BRITAIN https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham NAIROBI, KENYA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nairobi SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seoul --------------------------------------- And here are our 5 candidates for the winter title: BARCELONA, SPAIN https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barcelona CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canberra REYKJAVIK, ICELAND https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reykjavík SANTIAGO, CHILE https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santiago TROJENA, SAUDI ARABIA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neom ------------------------------------------- The votes will close at 12pm UK time on THURSDAY DECEMBER 1, when whichever city has most votes in each poll will win. HAPPY VOTING

  6. Just another bump, I'll probably do one more on Wednesday when it's 24-ish hours to go - but until then, if you haven't already - vote

  9. Hungary chances for the 2036 Olympics/Paralympics will be boosted by these coming blue ribbon 2023 World Athletics Championships, just as it was this year in hosting the widely acclaimed 2022 World Aquatics Championships.

  10. Commentator on the match there the other day said Uruguay want it - all of it - for the 2030 bid. Maybe it really will be the first truly nomadic stadium, could be at least one good thing come out of this tournament. Also yeah that was an amazing win by Japan @Palette86 - I had Germany down as top 3 favourite, they're usually at their best when nobody is talking about them...

  11. Yes, there are many real containers, but are they ' integral' to the structure of the stadium, or just a decoration? I believe very little of the hype of this WC....

  18. All I have left to say about the situation is, wake up Fifa. There are so many reasons for taking away the Hosting Rights than against it. 1) Qatar is homophobic. 2) Qatar is corrupt. 3) Qatar is too hot. 4) Qatar is too small. 5) Qatar wouldn't recognise Israel if they qualified. 6) Alcohol would be banned. 7) Lack of Human Rights. 8) Lack of Workers Rights. 9) Qatar has contributed nothing to the World of Football. All they have brought is corruption and greed. 10) Lack of Legacy afterwards. Am I missing anything? Fifa, wake up and listen to the majority of us people. It's not too late. Just over 8 years until the 2022 Fifa World Cup is enough time for another Country to prepare. Don't worry about Qatar's reaction. Think of Humanity and Sport, instead of Greed, Money and Corruption. As far as I am concerned, Blatter is the main party in the Corruption, yet Bin Hamman (Who yes was also corrupt aswell) was sacked, but Blatter weren't? Also, they have a Fifa investigator. Prove your 'Innocence' by having a neutral, outside source investigate the 'Allegations'. The IOC had the right idea by rejecting Doha for the 2016 and 2020 Summer Olympics. Fifa, prove that money doesn't influence Sport, clear up your act and take away Hosting Rights from Qatar.

New Birmingham City Stadium would meet Fifa requirements. Birmingham. St James' Park would get minor renovations. Newcastle. New Everton Stadium would meet Fifa requirements. Liverpool. AMEX would be expanded and meet Fifa requirements. Brighton. Stadium MK would be expanded and meet Fifa requirements. Milton Keynes. Stadium of Light would get major renovations. Sunderland.
