as well as Madrid, Spain has again chance to host games but will be very hard

I would also like to see i future (but if Madrid gets this year, then in 20 years), Barcelona winter games, it would be cool

I've been to Belgrade several times and it's a great city. But there's no way a tenable OG bid could come out of Serbia in the next two decades:

  1. Economy is still poor, with very high unemployment
  2. Instable government that lacks the ability to push through anti-corruption reforms in a culture rife with corruption
  3. Poor--really poor--transportation infrastructure across all of Serbia
  4. Lack of 4/5 star hotels

Of all these, #2 is the big one: fix that and the rest become possible to fix.

In the Balkans, the only cities that might be able to field an OG bid are for OWGs: Ljubljana or Zagreb. But those would also be long shots.

Lately, a lot of is done about corruption. One of the richest men is in jail, because of that reason.

Ljubljana doesn't have 20,000 stadium, nor Slovenia. Zagreb maybe.

Enternal derby

The Eternal derby also called the Derby of Southeast Europe, is the local derby in Belgrade, Serbia, between the most fierce city rivals Red Star Belgrade and Partizan Belgrade, two of the biggest and most popular sports societies in Serbia. The rivalry is present in a number of different sports but the most intensive matches are between football, basketball and handball sections of both societies. It started immediately after the creation of the two clubs in 1945 and the two clubs have been dominant in domestic football since then.

According to a 2007 survey, Red Star and Partizan are the most popular clubs in Serbia. The clubs are also the most popular ones in Montenegro and Republika Srpska, the Serb entity within Bosnia and Herzegovina. They also have many supporters in all other former Yugoslavian republics and in the Yugoslavian diaspora.

The Eternal Belgrade derby matches were always greatly anticipated in the entire region and very popular in the world. It is considered one of the most fiercely derbies in world football. There are many derbies in world football but very few compare to this, it is more than just game and has a deeper meaning. In September 2009, British Daily Mail ranked the Eternal Belgrade derby 4th among the 10 greatest football rivalries of all time. In Аpril 2012, the Italian goalkeeper legend Walter Zenga told the Italian media, there are no more exciting derby than the Belgrade derby. The biggest attendance for a Red Star - Partizan match was about 108,000 spectators at the Red Star Stadium.

Internationally, Red Star is the most successful football club from Serbia in every European competition and the only Serbian club that has won an UEFA competition, winning the European Cup/UEFA Champions League in 1991 in Bari, Italy. The same year in Tokyo, Japan the club won the Intercontinental Cup and also played in European Super Cup final which Red Star lost to the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup champion Manchester United where only one match was played in Manchester of two supposed, because of UN sport sanctions imposed on Serbia that lasted until 1995 and influenced much more to later Red Star and generally Serbian European success by having excluded Serbian teams from all European and international competitions. The club also had previously made it to the 1979 UEFA Cup Final, losing to Borussia Mönchengladbach. Red Star played in semi-finals of every European competition(UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Cup Winners Cup) and played in two Europeans finals(UEFA Europa League in 1979 and European Champion Clubs Cup in 1991). Red Star have played 15 times in quarter-finals in European competitions. Red Star has also won 49 domestic trophies making them the most successful club in Serbia with a record 25 national league titles and 24 national Cups. Red Star also won two regional trophies of Mitropa Cup in 1958 and in 1968. And among many records Red Star has the longest unbeaten record in the league, and winning streak of 17 games in a row.

Partizan participated in the first ever 1955–56 European Cup match that took place on 3 September 1955 in Lisbon against Sporting. The final result of this match was 3-3, having won by 5–2 in the second leg in Belgrade. Partizan also played in 1966 European Cup Final, losing it to Real Madrid 1–2, after eliminating Manchester United in the semifinals. In more recent years, the club played in the2003–04 UEFA Champions League season, after eliminating Newcastle United on the penalties in the last qualifying round and also in the 2010–11 UEFA Champions League season after eliminating R.S.C.
