Paris 2024


Recommended Posts

The Socialists keep great chances to retain the leadership in the Paris region and the FN is weak there.

They are trying to strike a deal with the Greens to merge their lists. Possible the Greens ask for a referendum about the Games.

I don't want to turn this thread into a political discussion, but since it seems that has already happened . . .

Trump is very popular with anarcho-capitalists, but no one else. Social conservatives and pro-military people hate him almost as much as the left does. The current situation in the USA is similar to France: this is much more about mainstream politicians being weak than the far right being strong. Mainstream parties need to find charismatic outsider politicians who can promise change. Unfortunately the mainstream parties in the USA want to give us Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, while France is being offered another round of Hollande and Sarkozy

No sign of any discussion between the Greens and the Socialist Party about the Paris bid. Only some descoping of Grand Paris Express.

Because no Bid city that presented firts ever got the Games. And Many Bid citiies that presented last were awarded the Games. The IOC members, when they vote, remember best the last city that presented their bid. That makes sense.

Paris region in now on the right side (while Paris mayor is still on the left side).

As president of "Île de France" (Paris region), Valerie Pecresse will be a member of the Paris bid board.

She said she will support the bid.

The board is composed of 31 members:

- 16 from the sports movement

- 15 from public institutions

5 from the state (left side at least until May 2017)

5 from Paris city (left side)

5 from Paris region (right side)

WHY? This totally goes against the idea of Agenda 2020 -- which is downsizing the Games as much as possible. I don't see this as a good thing.

Errrrr....no. Agenda 2020 is - in theory at least - about tailoring the Games to hosts' existing infrastructure to lessen the burden.

Selling out a load of already existing football stadiums is one of the few guaranteed profit-makers for organising committees. London 2012 sold 2,186,150 tickets for football, for example. At a guess that's probably not far off £100m in revenue for zero venue construction right there (probably more than that once you add in hospitality etc).

Keeping the football tournament spread around the country in its biggest stadiums is definitely a good thing. This is a case of if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I'm aware they have a whole slew of new stadia because of EUro 2016. But still that adds Org costs to spread it out to 8-9 venues. And then FIFA will expect that of the next hosting, etc., etc. When will it stop??

Well, I hope the French know what they are doing.

Agenda 2020 isn't all about downsizing the games. That would be easy; just cut stuff. It's about downsizing the burden of hosting. BIG difference.

Hosting events in more existing stadiums don't add much to your costs, and spreads the game over the country. You need *France* to help pay for the games. The more of France you can involve, the better.

WRONG. OF course, security and hosting costs are doubled when you ramp up from the usual 4 venues to 8 or 9. Don't kid yourself into thinking that those costs don't add up. Tokyo 2020 - hello? But I see where they want to involve more of the country.
