I assume it’s to do with Olympic qualifying as a reason for these events, but it’s always struck me as odd that there’s almost no major quadrennial sports events held in the first year of the Olympic cycle. The European Games (in any form) would own 2021, 25, 29 etc if they went there. 

Kind of under selling the World Games there :P

Granted they have a small following, but they’ve been experiencing some major growth over the last 2/3 editions.

Well I can't say I've noticed any coverage of the World Games in this country (UK btw) beyond the very specialist sports sites like here, hence the comment. If it's a much bigger deal in other countries, then great, didn't know that - maybe we (well our main media) should be less parochial - wouldn't be the first time that's been called for - & give it more attention next time :)

I would say it was the other way around. The only countries interested in hosting this event are dictatorships who want to make themselves look good.

Yes, that and also sports organisations tend to shy away from having to face scrutiny, so bigger chance they'll favour shoddy deals with Lukashenko and co. On that note, the Belarus athletics federation just elected Ivan Tikhan (hammer thrower, multiple doping offender) as its president.

Still looking much more forward to our own hosting of the European Championships in 2022. Some budget cuts were already made due to corona (e.g. makeshift facilities rather than renovation work at the rowing/canoe venue), but I hope the events will go ahead as planned and even with an audience.

So now, we are one year to the 2023 European Games in Kraków and Małopolska, Poland. Today the organizing committee has launched its official logo:

The slogan: We are Unity (Polish: Jesteśmy jednością) was also unveiled. What do you think with the logo design?

Removing the building in the middle of the flame icon (or shifting it so it's fully on the yellow part) would make it a bit better

Overall it's a pretty solid logo, not too bad

That's good to know. I think it's a interesting design comparing with Minsk 2019. Do anyone else have their reactions with the logo?

No, the EOC current logo is permission used. The EOC picked the design for the games that was designed by Marcin Salawa. The logo of Krakow 2023 is symbolized with fire and water.

I've heard of people slightly amending Games logos to make comp entries - but I've never come across the reverse before! :lol: Not even @paul ever managed that, that's worth a logo comp hall of fame place on its own!

The EBU and EOC have signed a deal for the rights to the 2023 and 2027 games meaninig for the first time it'll be guaranteed live free to air coverage on PSBs across the continent, which perhaps gives it a chance of sticking arond a bit longer.   Just need the federations to sort themselves out and get behind a united programme.

 

Not sure if any potential hosts have expressed an interest in 2027 yet - the EOC chief wants them to go to a Western European host.  Have to wonder if it's the sort of thing Birmingham might now go for.

Why does one event have TWO logos?  And Krakow is in the mountains and Malopolska is a diamond-mining site??  

Krakow-Malopolska's logo has several versions of the 2023 games. according to the press conference during the one year to go celebration back in June.

Well we have a winner. Krakusek The dragon designed by 15 year old Katarzyna Biśta. Because she won the contest, the young lady from Libiąż, will receive VIP tickets to the Kraków-Małopolska 2023 Opening and Closing Ceremonies, European Games gadgets and a personalised mascot as a reward.
