  1. London is actually one of the few cities from the Olympics in the modern era that has learnt from sustainability, the Olympic Stadium is now used for concerts and just recently hosted the world athletics championships, The Aquatics centre has recently hosted diving and is open to the public, The Copper Box Arena is now used for Basketball and other events like Boxing the list goes on. But with costs becoming more expensive and very few cities being no longer able to bid alone without significant costs, Dont be surprised if London were to go for it.
  2. I think having the opening and closing ceremonies at Wembley could be a good option especially because the London Stadium will likely be used for West Ham matches as soon as the four week window is up. I think involving Birmingham could bridge over the North-South Divide especially. I think having All of the Football In London would be the best option especially due to the size of the stadiums being built in the city. The stoop in terms of the rugby 7s would be more viable, the last thing I would like to see is some 40,000-50,000 empty seats at Twickenham I also think Birmingham getting involved will actually make it an Nationwide Celebration.
  3. I have heard that Manchester may be interested in bidding for the European Games in 2023. if it does go to Manchester in 2023 it would be 21 years since the 2002 Commonwealth Games. I certainly hope it is true.
  4. It was only an idea of mine, I know its very unlikely to happen but could be possible in the future due to the reforms to the IOC.
  5. I would love to see a Joint Summer Olympic Bid from London and Birmingham for the 2032 Summer Olympics. My Idea is below Concept The Two cities would jointly host events in existing venues with some venues adding temporary seating in order to keep costs down for the organisers. London Venues. Olympic Stadium (London) - 66,000 - Athletics, Opening and Closing Ceremonies London Aquatics Centre- 2,500 (Increase to 17,500) - Swimming and Diving Events Lee Valley VeloPark (Velodrome) - 6,750 Lee Valley VeloPark (BMX Track) - 6,000 (temporary seats) A Temporary Olympic Press and Broadcast Centre. Horse Guards Parade - 15,000 (temporary seats) - Beach Volleyball Crystal Palace National Sports Centre - Training Venue for Athletes and Potential Olympics Village Regent's Park - Road Cycling, Baseball and Softball - 10,000 (temporary seats) Hyde Park - Triathlon Lord's Cricket Ground - Archery Twickenham Stoop - 14,816 - Rugby 7s Copper Box Arena - 7,500 - Handball All England Tennis and Croquet Club - Tennis Greenwich Park - Equestrianism O2 Arena - Basketball - 17,500 ExCel - Boxing - 5,000 Birmingham Venues: National Exhibition Centre - 5,000 - Fencing,Judo, Taekwondo, Weightlifting, Table Tennis and Possible Secondary Olympic Village Genting Arena- 15,000 Gymnastics Barclaycard Arena - 15,000 Badminton Sandwell Aquatics Centre - 5,000 - Water Polo Forest of Arden Hotel and Country Club - Golf Venues Not In London Or Birmingham: Weald Country Park, Essex - Mountain biking Broxbourne, Hertfordshire - Canoe/Kayak Slalom Dorney Lake, Buckinghamshire, - rowing and canoe/kayak flatwater. National Shooting Centre (Surrey) - Shooting Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, Weymouth - Sailing events Football (Soccer) Venues Ricoh Arena, Coventry - 32,500 (M/W Prelims) King Power Stadium, Leicester - 32,000 (M/W Prelims) City Ground, Nottingham - 30,445 (M/W Prelims) Bramall Lane, Sheffield - 32,702 (M/W Prelims) Villa Park, Birmingham - 42,682 (M/W Bronze Medal Matches) Wembley Stadium, London - 90,653 (M/W Finals) Key Transportation Points HS2 could potentially help with the bid because London and Birmingham will be just 49 mins away. Phase 1 (London - Birmingham) is due to open in 2026, Phase 2 (in 2032. Crossrail could be another positive, as this connects Stratford with Heathrow airport in just 43 mins Heathrow Airport expansion would be complete by 2030 and would be able to connect to Central London via Crossrail in just 39 minutes and allowing more international and dometic flights to arrive. Birmingham also has an extensive transport hub and is very accessible with the cross city rail line linking the city to major hubs including Wolverhampton, Birmingham New Street and along to the airport. (Birmingham International and Birmingham Interchange) Hotel Capacity Key Points London has a hotel capacity of 138,769. exceeding the IOC's requirements. This is expected to grow by 17,769 in the coming years bringing the total capacity in London to 156,538 Birmingham also has around 15 hotels on the site of the NEC, as well as across the city. What do you all think of my idea?
  6. Glencoe Ski Area has a vertical of over 800m which is a minimum FIS requirement for the Men’s downhill. That could be a possible location for all of the snow events and its only 50 miles away from Edinburgh so its links well with a city, of course other facilties have to be built as well like temporary stands for spectators and hotels as well. I think it could be possible but a lot of money would be needed to improve faculties to minimum standards.
  7. I have always been keen to see London host a winter olympics bid so here is my idea. There would be two Zones, London Zone and Mountain Zone which would host the snow events London Zone Wembley Stadium - 90,000 - Opening and Closing Ceremonies Wembley Arena - 7,000 - Ice Hockey Mens and Womens Competitions ExCel A - 6,000 - Figure Skating, Short Track Speed Skating, ExCel B- 6,000 - Curling Olympic Village- Crystal Palace National Sports Centre - Capacity 3,000-5,000 beds that could become homes after the Olympics and Paralympics. Mountain Zone Cairngorm Mountain Resort- Biathlon,Nordic Combined, Cross Country Skiing (addition 7,500 temporary seats) Lenshee Ski Centre - Snowboarding (addition of 5,000 temporary seats) The Lecht Ski Centre - Freestyle Skiing, Alpine Skiin, Ski Jumping. (addition of 5,000 temporary seats) New Ski Centre in Fort William - Bobsleigh, Luge and Skeleton (addition of 5,000 temporary seats) Olympic Village in Fort William would house up to 3,000 athletes and could be housing after the Games
