  1. The Qatar Olympic Committee has announced it's interest in hosting the 2032 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. Qatar unsuccessfully bid to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in both 2016 and 2020. The Qatari capital of Doha hosted the 2006 Asian Games, an event which was seen to have encouraged them to bid for other global events. This included the FIFA World Cup, which Qatar will host in 2022 after being controversially awarded the tournament in 2010. This was despite the bid process being the subject of allegations of bribery and corruption. Similar allegations also surrounded the Wor
  2. I intend to do a different one incorporating Aboriginal motifs and designs, but here's a modernized take on a logo. To be fair, I guess it really doesn't scream Queensland (Especially South East Queensland) as much, but hey. The Maltese Cross (Which I guess isn't a Queensland thing) is inspired by the flag of the state, whilst the petal like shapes point inwards symbolizing the four corners of the world. It's also stylized in a sun to represent the state's nickname being the 'Sunshine state'.
  3. I don't know about you but I'm keen to watch a few games live here in Christchurch, maybe even go to the opener in Auckland.
  4. I guess now's a good time to get rid of that watermark on our flags On a serious note, the Women's World Cup could be a great catalyst event to see if we could potentially co-host the FIFA World Cup as soon as 2034.
  5. Here's the FIFA Council vote breakdown, for those who are interested. My congratulations to both Australia and New Zealand!
  6. Well now this is interesting.... Even though the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup is set to be announced in a couple of days, it appears Japan will be withdrawing their bid meaning the Australian/New Zealand bid is poised to win the hosting rights for the tournament. "Japanese news website, Kyodo News, which is said to have around 50 million subscribers, reported on Monday afternoon that Japan's Football Association is set to withdraw its bid. Shortly after, Japan's national broadcaster NHK also reported that the bid would be withdrawn, with an official announcement expected on Mon
  7. FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ Bid Evaluation Report published – three bids submitted to FIFA Council Following a detailed assessment of the bid books and visits to the bidding countries, today FIFA confirmed that three bids will be submitted to the FIFA Council in order for it to select the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ host(s) at its meeting to be held online on 25 June 2020. The three qualifying bids are: joint submission by Football Federation Australia and New Zealand Football; submission by the Colombian Football Association; submission by the Japan Football Associat
  8. They decided to postpone uploading the ceremony to June 8th out of respect for the global community.
  9. Singapore would be a great candidate city. It has the facilities, they have a stable economy, they've proved they can host mid tier multi-sport events, it's a safe country etc. I would personally like to see the games held in Africa. Imagine the Commonwealth Games in Lagos or Nairobi (I would mention South Africa, but after the Durban fiasco... )
  10. Was looking through some of the ceremonies on the Olympic Channel when I noticed something seemed off. Apparently, there had been some issues with the flagpole that was suppose to have hoisted the Canadian flag.
  11. Just wait until Paris 2024 where the surfing event is literally held on the other side of the world
  12. If Hamilton ends up winning the bid for 2030, can we have Hamilton in NZ host the 2034 games for the laughs.
  13. Gaborone, Abuja and Tunis were the other participating cities wanting to host the 2022 Summer Youth Olympics. I probably would've liked to seen Botswana host it since it hosted the 2014 African Youth Games.
  14. (5 Years later...) Though I'd prefer to see Auckland host the Senior Games like most people, Auckland undoubtedly can host a SYOG before 2050. NZICC would be the Media Hub/International Broadcasting Center, Mt Smart stadium could be redeveloped into the Athletics Stadium etc. A new Aquatics center and possibly a velodrome (Unless Cambridge is open to a joint bid) would be needed for the games. Otherwise, new Infrastructure is well and truly underway such as the redevelopment of Auckland International Airport and the City Rail Link. I would definitely want Auckland to be the first city in Ocean
