I've imagined that maybe will be like 4 stadiums in Baku, the other ones Ganja... That's what i think

I;m curious because the fifa u-17 women's world cup next year is using very small stadiums all in Baku. If they propose that then you have a very compact bid.

I;m curious because the fifa u-17 women's world cup next year is using very small stadiums all in Baku. If they propose that then you have a very compact bid.

FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup will use some 6 stadiums (4 in Baku, 1 in Lankaran and 1 in Mardakan) all to be ready by summer 2012:

Tofig Bahramov stadium (32,000) - Under major reconstruction

Khazar Lankaran stadium (15,000) - Ready

8 KM stadium (15,000) - Under construction

Shafa Stadium (8,000) - Under reconstruction

Dalga Arena (6,500) - Ready

Bayil stadium (5,000) - Under construction

So where's the logo? I've sen a few news story that it's been released, but no pics of it at all. And there doesn't seem to be a Baku 2020 website yet.

Baku 2020 bid logo will be unveiled tomorrow on Wednesday, 21 December 2011

^ Exactlly that!! Was what i was talking about! Good luck Baku, very strong you deserve the shortlist at least...

Thanks for your support! I really appreciate it.

Logo and Slogan

Together We Can

The Baku 2020 Bid logo is inspired by the world-famous Azerbaijani carpets.

In particular, the Bid logo’s design is inspired by how, in these spectacular and valuable works of art, each brightly coloured individual thread is woven together with others to create something amazing, delightful, surprising and beautiful.

The logo is not only a colourful representation of a carpet, the weave itself also subtly spells out Baku’s ‘dream date’ of 2020.

Finally, the Baku 2020 logo is a visual articulation of the central proposition of our Bid: bringing things together to create something much greater and more marvellous than simply the sum of their individual parts.

The Baku 2020 Bid is not just concerned about what the Olympic Movement can do for Baku and Azerbaijan; it also cares deeply about what Baku and Azerbaijan can in turn do for the Olympic Movement.

We believe there is a close synergy between us: that Baku can offer enormous benefits back to the Olympic Movement if it is granted the honour of hosting the Games in 2020.

This concept of ‘coming together’ is at the very heart of Azeri history and culture. The logo is therefore full of local meaning and provenance. It is not mere decoration, it is a graphical articulation of the Bid’s slogan – “Together we can”.

Each individual colourful thread contributes to making the whole weave stronger and more beautiful. Likewise, we believe that, with the Olympic Movement,

together we can develop, inspire and empower millions of young sportsmen and women;

together we can accelerate the development of team sports in Azerbaijan, as well as introduce new sports into the country, so benefitting young and old, men and women;

together we can spread the values of Olympism to a region of the world that will benefit enormously from these values, putting sport and its importance at the forefront of our society;

together we can nourish new dreams, new friendships and new understandings between competitors, spectators and people that will extend far beyond Azerbaijan and the Olympic Games themselves;

together we can host a fabulous Olympic and Paralympic Games.

What are the two big buildings on the left hand side? I've heard they'd build an Aquatics Centre but I'm not sure.

Well I don't know much about this concept but it is clear that they plan it in the area of Koroglu subway station where they have already started to build Olympic Stadium and Gymnastics Arena both in the area of Koroglu subway station. The Minister of Youth and Sport Azad Ragimov announced that they still work on the the project of Aquatics Center and will start to build it soon. I guess they could accelerate all the works in case IOC would shortlist Baku.

Here is the ongoing reconstruction of Tofig Bahramov stadium http://www.azerisport.com/photostory/20120108020844938.html#!prettyPhoto Altough the main reason for reconstruction is FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup to be held in Azerbaijan in 2012, the stadium is still considered as one of the three options for the venue of ESC 2012
