zenica Posted October 10, 2005 Report Share Posted October 10, 2005 In times when there are a lot of great sport events like Olympia 2004, football WC 2006, Torino 2006 the European community must also have it´s interest and representation there, beginning with marketing, PR, security, traffic etc, all these questions that are necessary for a good organization. This includes also influence from the first day of the bid until last day of the event (see Athens 2004 where they now have a huge financial problem). There should be a committee which works together with the relevant sport organization (i.e. OC) and bring the whole thing to a good end. Sport is also a part of live and should have it´s place under the roof of the European Community. So the sport events have more power and success. Even smaller countries have a chance to get big events although they have not the budget to do the investment for this. This should be done in coordination with the sport organizations. This is the same with the IOC where some people of the EC should have more influence and a few seats there. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
