São Paulo is the largest city in Brazil, the largest city in the Americas and the 4th largest city in the world, with almost 13 million inhabitants. During its history, São Paulo hosted major events, whether sports or not, or competed for some event. Of these events, what is missing to close this list, are the Olympic Games.
At the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, São Paulo was one of the soccer sub-venues, receiving 10 matches, but not something grandiose.
São Paulo has hosted the 1963 Pan American Games, the 2002 South American Games, the 2014 Parapan American Youth Games, as well as the games of the 1950 World Cup, the 2014 World Cup and the 2019 America Cup. And every year, it receives the World-wide one of Formula 1. The city applied to host the 2012 Summer Olympics, losing to Rio de Janeiro, which lost to London and Expo 2020, losing to Dubai.

The city of São Paulo is a major economic, industrial and tourism hub in Brazil, receiving 11.7 million tourists in 2010 according to the Municipal Tourism Department. With the Olympics, that number would double or even triple. In the lodging, the city counts on about 50,000 rooms of hotels. In addition, there are 280 movie theaters, 180 theaters, 110 museums, 90 cultural centers, 55 shopping centers, more than 12,000 restaurants, ranging from local cuisine to thai cuisine.

São Paulo has numerous portal cards, such as parks, museums, avenues, among others. Ibirapuera Park is the largest park in the city, and is a meeting point for people of all ages who enjoy their lawns, museums and hiking trails. Paulista Avenue is Brazil's most famous avenue, bringing together companies, museums, shopping malls, subway stations, and is the meeting point of many people, especially young people. The São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP) is located on Avenida Paulista, with paintings by artists such as Renoir and Van Gogh, as well as sculptures and other objects from Ancient Greece. The Altino Arantes Building is one of the highest in the city, known as "Empire States Paulista", with exhibition halls, skating rink, cafeteria and an observatory. The 25 de Março Street is the main street of popular commerce, with small shops that sell everything a little. The Municipal Market is considered to be the home of the best ingredients, with bars and stalls selling mostly fruits, ranging from a simple apple to the exotic pitaya.

A large mesh of transport facilitates the movement. They pass through the city, 11 state and federal highways. More than 200 bus lines connect all areas of the city. With 6 subway lines in operation, 3 more in construction, 7 suburban train lines linking São Paulo to neighboring cities, makes the city the largest and best public transportation network in Brazil, and one of the best and largest in the world. The city has 3 airports (São Paulo-Guarulhos, São Paulo-Congonhas and Campo de Marte), making São Paulo connect with the rest of the world. Three more road terminals complete this system.

The city has large sports centers such as stadiums, gymnasiums and other places that can be adapted, such as convention centers. Some do not even need to be renovated because they are new facilities, such as the Corinthians Arena, the Palmeiras Arena and the Paralympic Center.

These are just a few details, a summary of all the potential that São Paulo has to receive the Olympic Games, and who knows in 2032. Brazilian authorities have not launched an interest in hosting the event so far, but who knows soon. It's not hard to dream.

Is that you? What do you think of this future candidacy? Do you think São Paulo has the potential to do so? Can São Paulo become a candidate for 2032?

Just now, Artur Moreira de Souza said:

São Paulo é a maior cidade do Brasil, a maior cidade das Américas e a quarta maior cidade do mundo, com quase 13 milhões de habitantes. Durante sua história, São Paulo sediou grandes eventos, esportivos ou não, ou disputou algum evento. Destes eventos, o que falta para fechar esta lista são os Jogos Olímpicos. Nos Jogos Olímpicos Rio 2016, São Paulo foi um dos sub-sedes do futebol, recebendo 10 partidas, mas não algo grandioso. São Paulo sediou os Jogos Pan-americanos de 1963, os Jogos Sul-Americanos de 2002, os Jogos Parapan-americanos de Juventude de 2017, além dos jogos da Copa do Mundo de 1950, da Copa de 2014 e da Copa América de 2019

. E a cada ano, recebe o Mundial de Fórmula 1. A cidade se candidatou para sediar as Olimpíadas de Verão de 2012, perdendo para o Rio de Janeiro, que perdeu para Londres e a Expo 2020, perdendo para o Dubai.

A cidade de São Paulo é um importante pólo econômico, industrial e turístico do Brasil, recebendo 11,7 milhões de turistas em 2010, segundo a Secretaria Municipal de Turismo. Com as Olimpíadas, esse número dobraria ou até triplicaria. Na hospedagem, a cidade conta com cerca de 50.000 quartos de hotéis. Além disso, existem 280 salas de cinema, 180 teatros, 110 museus, 90 centros culturais, 55 shopping centers e mais de 12.000 restaurantes, que vão desde culinária local até culinária tailandesa.

São Paulo possui inúmeros cartões de portal, como parques, museus, avenidas, entre outros. O Parque do Ibirapuera é o maior parque da cidade, e é um ponto de encontro para pessoas de todas as idades que apreciam seus gramados, museus e trilhas para caminhadas. A Avenida Paulista é a avenida mais famosa do Brasil, reunindo empresas, museus, shoppings, estações de metrô, e é ponto de encontro de muitas pessoas, principalmente jovens. O Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) está localizado na Avenida Paulista, com pinturas de artistas como Renoir e Van Gogh, além de esculturas e outros objetos da Grécia Antiga. O Edifício Altino Arantes é um dos mais altos da cidade, conhecido como "Empire States Paulista", com salas de exposições, pista de patinação, cafeteria e um observatório. A rua 25 de Março é a principal rua do comércio popular, com pequenas lojas que vendem tudo um pouco. O Mercado Municipal é considerado o lar dos melhores ingredientes, com bares e barracas vendendo principalmente frutas, que vão desde uma maçã simples até a pitaya exótica.

Uma grande malha de transporte facilita o movimento. Eles passam pela cidade, 11 rodovias estaduais e federais. Mais de 200 linhas de ônibus conectam todas as áreas da cidade. Com 6 linhas de metrô em operação, mais 3 em construção, 7 linhas de trens suburbanos ligando São Paulo a cidades vizinhas, fazem da cidade a maior e melhor rede de transporte público do Brasil, e uma das melhores e maiores do mundo. A cidade possui 3 aeroportos (São Paulo-Guarulhos, São Paulo-Congonhas e Campo de Marte), fazendo com que São Paulo se conecte com o resto do mundo. Mais três terminais rodoviários completam este sistema.

A cidade possui grandes centros esportivos, como estádios, ginásios e outros locais que podem ser adaptados, como centros de convenções. Alguns nem precisam ser reformados, pois são novas instalações, como a Arena Corinthians, a Arena Palmeiras e o Centro Paralímpico.

Estes são apenas alguns detalhes, um resumo de todo o potencial que São Paulo tem para receber os Jogos Olímpicos, e quem sabe em 2032. As autoridades brasileiras ainda não lançaram interesse em sediar o evento, mas quem sabe em breve. Não é difícil sonhar.

Isso é você? O que você acha dessa futura candidatura? Você acha que São Paulo tem potencial para isso? Pode São Paulo se tornar um candidato para 2032?

Sao Paulo is capable of hosting the Olympics. But it would not be wise for Sao Paulo and for Brasil to do so.

Football stadiums are not a problem at the Olympics. It is the athletics stadium, huge aquatics center, the whitewater kayaking center, etc that are problems. Sao Paulo would need to rebuild Morumbi into an Olympic Stadium as neither Arena Corinthians nor Allianz Parque have a track.

I’d say Brazil is burnt territory for the IOC for the next few decades. And soon having another self-declared strong man as President wouldn’t make things easier.

The Morumbi Stadium has an athletics track. But it would be necessary to build a couple more streaks. In the structure, what Morumbi really needs is a roof and a facade renovation. To rebuild it is not necessary at the moment, even because it is in a noble region, and the residents of there would not like to see a gigantic work at the door of house.

Way too soon to consider another bid from Brazil.  It has barely been 2 years on from Rio.  Sao Paulo may well be the next South American city to host an Olympics, but we are likely decades away from that being on the table.
