KL-Bangkok 2024


Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone knows about this but Malaysia and Thailand are considering putting forth a joint bid with Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok.

Here is the link to an article I found about it:

Apparently they're also considering a joint bid for the FIFA World Cup:

Fairly sure that a joint Malaysia/Thailand bid won't fly with the IOC. Also, KL on its own has the cachet and infrastructure to stage the Olympic Games on its own - why share them with Bangkok, capital of a country that only knows political and economic stability from textbooks?

True, I think that the rumour mill has gone into overdrive in regard to candidates for the 2024 Olympics: first India, now Malaysia - and that doesn't quite consider that that Tokyo 2020 makes another Asian candidate highly unlikely...I wouldn't be surprised if we are left with the candidates already known for a while...
