  1. Spain will bid to the host World Cup in 2030 Luis Rubiales, Pedro Sánchez and Gianni Infantino spoke about the matter on Wednesday It's been too long since Spain hosted a World Cup on its shores -- in concrete, since 1982, when tournament mascot Naranjito was one of the stars of the tournament. 12/09/2018 Upd. on 13/09/2018 at 09:28 CEST Jesús Malagón (@86malagon) IN SPORT.ES España presentará su candidatura para el Mundial 2030 The idea of hosting football's showpiece for a second time came up again on Wednesday in a meeting at Moncloa between RFEF president Luis Rubiales, FIFA chied Gianni Infantino and the president of Spain Pedro Sanchez. Spain's main objective is to organise the World Cup in 2030. However, there are various alternatives in which that could happen: either as a stand-alone candidate or as joint hosts with Portugal and Morocco. The second option is the one which Rubiales feels gives the country the best chance of winning the vote. The meeting was Infantino's second official visit to Spain in less than two months, after taking part in the RFEF's General Assembly, when Rubiales made his debut as the organisation's president. Thirty-six years ago, on our shores, Italy won th 1982 World Cup, beating Germany 3-1 in the final at the Santiago Bernabeu. In 2020, Bilbao will be one of the cities which hosts a European Championships which will be spread across the continent. The upcoming World Cups will be in Qatar in 2020 and in the USA, Canada and Mexico in 2026. https://www.sport-english.com/en/news/futbol-internacional/spain-will-bid-to-the-host-world-cup-in-2030-7030800
  2. what stockholm bid needs is stronger government support
  3. the host will be decided in 2022, so in 4 years from now situation may be different. After all world cup isnt Olympics and spain has already a lot of big stadiums for that event. Some of them may need renovation, thats all. And consider that argentina that want 2030 competition has far more problems in economy than Spain
  4. Spain has not hosted a major tournament since the 1982 World Cup, and failed in a joint bid with Portugal to stage the 2018 competition. So in 2030 will be 50 years since the last time they hosted such a competition Few can match Spain for pedigree in a football sense, with their club sides ruling European competition in recent years, with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid dominating the Europa League just as Real Madrid and Barcelona the Champions League. They boast iconic stadiums such as the Santiago Bernabeu and Camp Nou. Spain also organized maybe the best world cup ever in 1982 (or one of the best) But as of now there is currently little appetite within Spain for a World Cup bid due to the economic crisis that has hit the country hard in recent years. But if UEFA claim the 2030 ticket, Spain may see themselves in race.
  5. It is Scandinavia's turn i guess. Sweden a great winter sports country. Let them go for 2026..!

  7. Russia To Consider 2032 Olympic Games Bid By Robert Livingstone | Published Jul 9, 2018 4:48 PM in Featured, Summer Olympic Bids Russia could consider a bid for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games bid, it was reported Monday from Moscow. St. Petersburg, Russia considered a bid for 2024 Summer Games (GB Photo) Website Sputnik wrote that Arkady Dvorkovich, Chairman of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Local Organizing Committee in Moscow said “Russia will continue hosting large sports tournaments, all our partners, international organizations know that we can do that. “As for the Summer Olympic Games,” he added, “the hosts are selected up to 2028. We will consider the situation in the next couple of years and make a decision. “It’s too early to talk about it now, the decision will be up to the President, not me anyway.” The Summer Games in 2024 and 2028 were awarded last year to Paris and Los Angeles as part of an historic double-allocation. The two cities were the only remaining after three other cities dropped out of the race, and the Intentional Olympic Committee (IOC) opted to select both strong candidates, giving concessions to the American entry for accepting the 2028 Games 11 years in advance. The 2032 host city will be elected in 2025. Russia is currently hosting its first FIFA World Cup, set to conclude July 15. In 2014 the nation hosted the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. The Summer Games were last hosted by the country in Moscow in 1980, and the Capital unsuccessfully bid to host the 2012 edition. St. Petersburg, the city that has been mentioned most often in discussions of future bids by Russia, pursued a 2004 Games bids that was lost to Athens. Russian sport has been struggling to recover from allegations that its athletes were involved in a state-sponsored doping program. A clandestine sample-switching scheme was uncovered in use at the Sochi 2014 anti-doping lab that helped give Russia’s Olympic team an unfair advantage. In response, some Russian athletes were banned from the Rio 2016 Games by the International Athletics Federation (IAAF), and the Russian team was excluded from the PyeongChang 2018 Games. Some athletes who were proven clean, however, were able to participate under a neutral flag. Groups from Australia, India and Germany have also expressed interest in hosting the 2032 event. https://gamesbids.com/eng/summer-olympic-bids/russia-to-consider-2032-olympic-games-bid/
  8. 2024 Olympics: Tony Estanguet visiting La Rochelle, Friday, July 10 The Delegation of Ambition Olympic and Paralympic Association and the French Sailing Federation began this week its inspection visits to candidate sites for the sailing events of the Olympic project of Paris in 2024. After Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône) Monday, Hyères (Var) Tuesday, Brest (Finistère) Wednesday and Thursday Morbihan, the delegation will travel to La Rochelle tomorrow. Tony Estanguet during the presentation of the interim results of the scoping study in November 2024 Paris 2014 (Appropriations - Sport and Society) On this occasion, Tony Estanguet, French member of the International Olympic Committee and one of the two leading figures of Paris 2024, will travel in Charente-Maritime according to information from France 3 Poitou-Charentes. This coming owes nothing to chance in view of the past of La Rochelle. The city was indeed an official candidate for sailing events for the 2008 Olympics and 2012 with the water Minimes. But the successive failures of Paris in the race games have finally won Olympic ambition of the port city. It is therefore with a certain legitimacy that La Rochelle retry the Olympic adventure for 2024 . But if his favorite status was evident at the last two Olympic projects, it is not the same today. Five cities and territories and stand before her, Le Havre (Seine-Maritime) and Hyères is even the most formidable postulants under the communication project and mobilization on the ground. http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=fr&rurl=translate.google.fr&sl=fr&tl=en&u=http://sportetsociete.org/2015/07/09/jo-2024-tony-estanguet-en-visite-a-la-rochelle-vendredi-10-juillet/&usg=ALkJrhisxSPhGzJ_B2q1cuChTPzN0orOAQ 2024 Olympics: The festivities of July 14 in the colors of the Paris bid
  9. I have some notices: 1. AAMI Park could host Rugby-7s, if Kardinia Park will be the football stadium (or the opposite) 2. Rod Laver Arena and Margaret Court Arena will be busy with the tennis tournament, i dont think will be able to host other events and tennis is very popular there so big Rod Laver Arena will take many qualification matches, not only finals 3. Hisense Arena i agree, except track cycling can take probably Handball finals 4. What about Lakeside Stadium for Mod. Pentathlon? with Melbourne Sports and Aquatics Centre to host swimming portion and indoor hall of the same venue to host fencing 5. The area in Albert Park can accomodate some indoor arenas that maybe needed and of course Melbourne Sports and Aquatics Centre expansion, with a new pool at 15.000 and existing smaller pool to host diving and water polo 6. St Kilda Foreshore, Triathlon, Cycling Time Trial 7. Punt Road Oval at Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Precinct can be transformed to an temporary archery venue?
  10. can someone give us a list with the sports and possible venues? with the existing venues
  11. Everyone say about Paris 2012 arrogant bid but none for New York 2012...
  12. Hidalgo to submit Paris 2024 candidature decision to council leaders in March Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo was one of the political leaders to be presented with a report on the city's candidacy for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games ©Getty ImagesProvisional confirmation of a Paris bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games could come as soon as March, after sports officials today delivered a key feasibility study to political leaders, including Anne Hidalgo, the city's Mayor. Receiving the report from Bernard Lapasset, President of the French International Sport Committee (CFSI), Hidalgo thanked him, Denis Masseglia, President of the French National Olympic and Sport Federation (CNOSF) and Tony Estanguet, a French International Olympic Committee (IOC) member, for their "professionalism", and said she would "submit the candidature decision to the councils of Paris's 20 arrondissements at the end of March and to the Council of Paris in April". Observing that the economic model for the Games still needed further precision, Hidalgo announced that she would also call a meeting of "bosses of large companies", also in March. But the Mayor, who until now has appeared sceptical about the potential benefits of a bid, also commented favourably on IOC President Thomas Bach's Agenda 2020 initiative, saying she was "delighted" that the IOC had in December passed 40 proposals "in favour of sustainable development". And she said she had "heard the force of the message sent by the people of Paris after [last month's] attacks" and was "touched to see how Paris touches the world". "I heard the need for engagement in the hope of a more fraternal world," Hidalgo said. "I hope that young people speak out and get involved." While the study's contents have yet to be published, it seems unthinkable that it would not have concluded that a bid is technically feasible. The highbrow newspaper Le Monde, which said it had secured access to the study, reported that the whole text was indeed favourable towards a bid. Interestingly, in these highly cost-conscious times in Western Europe, the newspaper said that the document puts the budget at an extremely modest €6 billion (£4.5 billion/$7 billion), including organisation and infrastructure costs. It said the study played up the contributions that would be made by the IOC, as well as private sponsors and ticket sales, using the slogan, "The Games finance the Games". Boston and Rome are already on the starting-line for the race, and may be joined next month by Hamburg or Berlin and possibly others. The IOC are due to choose the host city at its 2017 Session in the Peruvian capital of Lima.
