2019 Pan American Games


Recommended Posts

Sure. I got that. :)

That's why I said Mexico's position is too open to interpretations and different POVs. Besides, Guadalajara was the sole candidate for 2011. Focusing only on 2019, it's unlikely PASO will choose a city from a country sharing a land border with the previous host. The last time it happened was in 1959, when Cleveland (and then Chicago) was chosen after Mexico City had theirs in 1955.

My opinion. Next Brazilian Olympic Games (after 2120) will be in Rio de Janeiro again. If not Rio, Brasilia or Curitiba are the best "second-choices" for this. Of course based on today data. But who

The day Miami put a bid they win by landslide... That's my point.

It's the only city in America with strong links with every single country of the hemisphere.

True but the 2015 host also has that covered. ;)

^^Never like Miami.

Which strong links Toronto have with Brazil, for example?

MIami and Metro-Dade area forms an US city that is home of millions of latinamerican people, home of main international offices of almost all Multilatinas*, and the area around the city is favourite summer vacation spot for thousands of elderly Canadians...

Sorry, Miami and its surroudings are the "PanAmericanalism" itself.

Toronto does not, neither any other city in the continent.

*Multilatinas: Multinational companies from LatinAmerican countries.

I meant Toronto is one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world. Every country will be sort of a homes games for them in 2015. I agree what you said about Miami too.

Any big metropolis in the world have multiculturalism, Intoronto...

Even Rio can claim it....

But, in the case of PanAms, no single city represents this better than Miami, considered by many the only LatinAmerican capital outside LatinAmerica...

(or inside.... LOL You can read some signs in stores and commerce saying "We speak English")

U will see for yourself in 2015! There is almost a street parade/festival for every country in the Americas in Toronto every year. Not sure about Brazil though, maybe one of the few that doesn't. But when Brazil won the WC in 2002 it was huge here.

Toronto has some 40% inhabitants of foreign origin. The same can't be said for any Brazilian city. Even São Paulo would be a strech, as foreign cultures were absorbed into our own.

Toronto have a big chinese population as well... It would be a perfect appeal for Olympic Games, no doubts.

Im talking about PanAms. No city in the world encapsulates better the sense of PanAmericanalism than Miami.

Indeed check Miami airport destinations. The only to serve directly almost all countries in this hemisphere

PS: I must confess I didn't know about the huge population of "foreign-born" people in Toronto.

But still, Miami carries the titles of "Most LatinAmerican city in the planet". Unless Toronto is trying to steal it.

Miami gives the vibe of Latin America tbh. Toronto as well. Miami more so.

how does a Belo Horizonte bid sounds after 2019? good candidate?

For 2023? IDK two straight games in South America? If San Juan bids for 2019 and 2023 they will likely be the hot favourite. However Brazil has a chance because that is the same gap between Winnipeg and Toronto.

I can see if Belo wins if it bids against two cities it is clearly better then.

I would love some games in Belo Horizonte, the city looks nice and have empty spaces to built venues.

Also they already have Mineirao Stadium for World Cup and Mineirinho Arena for Volleyball (a fantastic venue I can tell you guys).

But IMO, in Brazil, Brasilia and Curitiba have more chances to host a multisports event before BH.

Also, TV Record, owner of PanAms TV rights in Brazil already said they are interested in bring the games back to Sao Paulo again...

About Argentina, Colombian govt. is claiming they are now the second biggest economy in South America... Not Argentina.

In fact, I support both Expo 2020 and any PanAms bid from Sao Paulo.

Also, I'm pretty happy with the construction of Itaquera Stadium, as you can witness in Brazil 2014 thread...

If you want to make criticism about my behaviour here (which I suggest you might not - I'm not that interesting), do it with accuracy...

I have my reasons to dislike Argentina, and if you like them, I have no objection...

PS: I agree with the Argentines and specialist arguments, Colombia is not the second economy of South America yet...

Hey, this is my first post. How does one get a municipality interested in hosting a pan-am games or any international sporting event?

Welcome to the forums!

What I remember from 2007 it was a group of people interested in bidding for the 2015 Games in Toronto and they bought it to the municipal then provincial and finally the federal government for support.
