EU representation in great sport events

No, I´m not interested in 2036. What I want to say is: when 2014 PyoengChang will get the Games, which would be no suprise, the next Games should go to Europe. And Munich would be one of the strongest candidates for 2018. So why Germany should wait 20 or maybe 30 years for the next Summer Games when there is a realistic chance to get the Winter Games very soon (in camparison). When Munich would get the Games 2018, there would be no realistic chance for Germany to get the Games in 2020 or 2024.

It´s not sure that Munich will get 2018. But Munich will be one of the favorites for this bid. After Vancouver 2010 and PC 2014 (possibly) there should be an European candidate for 2018. Would you wait 20 or more years to see the next Games in your country?

Most of these people who decide now will be on the cemetery then.

Why not 2018 in LA?

As part of the security program for the World Cup 2006 the German

Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution will check every person who works for the event, from the policeman to the ushers and the people who sell sausages and burgers. The estimated number is about 220,000 people. They have a lot to do ...

Regarding the safety problems in the world cup stadiums in Germany, EU has to have a look at this. The responsible EU commission has to push the organisation committee to solve the problems. Also having a look at the Nagano 1998 issue (and also later, I assume) there have to be better controls for big sport events which were held in Europe. Issues like this have to be prevented for the future. Something like in Nagano should no longer be possible - it´s ridiculous.

Sure, this is first of all a problem of the German government. The responsible minister is already in action. But EU observes the big sport events in Europe like OG´s, World cups etc. If the organisation committees are not able to solve the problems they have to investigate. The problems in the stadiums are not new. Most of them are already known since the Confed Cup in June.

Generally i would agree. But EU should have a basic line setting the standards like in environment protection, traffic and so on. The same should be for big sport events in Europe like OG´s, WC, EC etc. It´s only to improve processes and maybe to help, not only the Germans to have better and more safe events.

If the OC is able to solve it´s problems on it´s own - ok. But since Confed Cup in June these problems are known - nothing happened. This problem has to be solved very soon, before the first match starts.

Nothing has happend...?? Where have you lived the past few months? Come on, be fair!!! The roof problems in Frankfurt have been solved and the other stadiums have been fine.

Goethe, did you read the "Stiftung Warentest" report where the safety problems are listed? Or do you have the same opinion like Beckenbauer, who said that these people should check bread and toilet paper and should take away their fingers from things they don´t understand. Next defeat of the OC is the cancellation of the  opening ceremony as the lawn will be damaged and will not recover for the first match. Didn´t they know this a few monthes earlier? I assume most of the 25 million are already paid so this is nothing that reduces the cost. Not a glorious chapter for the OC

the cancellation of the opening ceremony of the Worldcup 2006 in Germany is not a glorious chapter for FIFA. People invested more than 2 years of their time, about 10 million Euro. This is really frustrating for these people. EU should investigate in issues like this when big sport events are in Europe. Culture is also a part of the World Cup and to eliminate it now is ridiculous. IOC, FIFA and UEFA also have to do a lot of reforms to reorganize the hierarchy and make it easier to see through and to work with. How can they do such a shortterm shortminded decision? We should think about it to prevent this for the future. Culture was always part of the sport. To reduce these events only to sport and profit is not the right way. This has to be considered before decision like the cancellation are made. Those people should be eliminated for all times from every function they could do these nonsense.

EU should have a clear line, not only because of Worl Cup also for all the other big sport events, to help and if necessary to investigate, in Europe. Especially when organisations have big problems and don´t now what to do. Also when the officials are not the best. It´s nearly the same as in culture, environment, economy etc.

Today the German government discussed about the problems with the stadiums. The WorldCup OC denied to have any problems whereas the report says something different. Actually no solution was found. In future this should be observed by an independent party like EU to prevent those differences.

But it's not the EU's role. There are already trans-national international organisations _ the international sports federations _ to keep watch over such events. In the world cup's case, it's FIFA, of course.

The next thing, you'll be suggesting the IOC should hand over its entire role to the UN!
