Wow.  So defensive.  Then DON'T make spurious, disingenous claims.

Super funds to fuel Brisbane Olympic Games

Quote

Super funds are lining up to pour money into Brisbane’s infrastructure if the city wins its bid for the 2032 Olympics.

LGIAsuper chief executive Kate Farrar said the city could become the “deal capital” of Australia if the bid came off.

LGIAsuper is taking over Suncorp’s super business in 2022 and has recently merged with a smaller fund, Energy Super, gaining financial fire power amid a wave of consolidation in the sector.

“We see investment opportunities should Brisbane win the Olympics,” Ms Farrar said.

“Assets like athlete accommodation that could be repurposed after the Olympics would be of interest. We would be looking at co-investing with governments and the private sector.”

Queensland could be just weeks away from securing the Games after the International Olympic Committee recommended putting the Brisbane bid to a full vote in July.

According to an independent economic assessment released along with the IOC executive decision, the Games would deliver a total benefit of $8.1bn for Queensland and $17.61bn for Australia and create 91,600 full-time equivalent jobs for Queensland.

LGIAsuper already invests in infrastructure assets around the state including the Sunshine Coast Airport, Gold Coast Light Rail, the Central Queensland Livestock Exchange and the North Queensland Gas Pipeline.

“Infrastructure is a very stable asset with fantastic increases in values as well as steady income streams,” Ms Farrar said.

After taking over Suncorp’s super business, LGIAsuper will have combined assets under management of $30bn and a quarter of a million members.

The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority is encouraging funds to merge to allow them to compete more effectively.

QSuper is in the process of merging with Sunsuper to create a Queensland-based financial goliath with assets of $200bn.

The last two years has seen the merger of VicSuper and First State Super – funds focused on state government employees in Victoria and NSW respectively. Brisbane-based Club Super in 2019 announced it would merge with larger rival Hostplus.

Ms Farrar did not rule out future amalgamations of LGIAsuper with other funds.

“We will become the biggest boutique fund in Queensland,” she said.

“Our industry is rapidly consolidating and the goalposts will change pretty quickly so we will be on the lookout for new partners in time.”

She said the recent billion-dollar deal that will see electric car recharging company Tritium list on Nasdaq underscored Brisbane’s growing attractiveness for investors. “Brisbane is going places and there will be more deals occurring here as the state grows.” she said.

Ms Farrar, a former clarinet player and bond trader, points to the fund’s stake in infrastructure assets like the Sunshine Coast Airport as an example of its focus on stable returns in an increasingly volatile world.

“Our fund is made up of a lot of members in the 45-plus age group,” she said.

“We are focused on capital preservation because when you get to that age you do not want another global financial crisis.”

“South East Queensland’s blend of beach and city culture offers incredible potential for live sites, festivals, mass participation sports and other activities.”

“Idyllic beaches and islands, Indigenous Australian culture and a thriving arts and entertainment scene, would make the ‘River City’ of Brisbane an excellent setting.”


A great source of employment for architects, event planners, hospitality workers, media, security and performing arts sectors.

Broadbeach Park Stadium

Brisbane 2032

Pictured below is the temporary Beach Volleyball venue used for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

At a capacity of 4,000 this Venue can expect to be triple in size to the planned 12,000 capacity in 2032.

It will be slightly bigger than the Sydney 2000 venue, which at 10,000 capacity, is also pictured below.

By 2032, the Light Rail extension will also have been completed to further facilitate mass transport of spectators.

Not far from my house. Unfortunately I don't think they have any events planned this far south for Brisbane 2032.

Hi Ulu

Good News!
You will be very pleased to know that the 2032 Venue is actually the same location as for the Broadbeach Park.

The next stage of the Gold CoastbLight Rail is expected to have been debated and built by then.

It’s now official and listed on page 33 of the Venue Masterplan - click on the link below:

Here is the 2019 story from ”The Australian” reported on the IOC rule change:

The July/August Rule

“Australia’s southern capitals ruled out of Olympics bids”

“Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, ­Adelaide and every ­Australian ­region outside southeast Queensland has been told they are effectively barred from ever bidding for an Olympics ­following the International Olympic Committee’s decision to always hold the Summer Games in July-August.“

“The 1956 Melbourne Games were staged from November 22 to December 8 and the 2000 Sydney Olympics from September 15 to October 1, but this latest ruling means such Games can never happen again.”

One final hurdle for Brisbane Olympic bid

July 7, 2021

Today marks just two weeks until D-Day on the fate of the bid for a southeast Queensland 2032 Olympics with the International Olympic Committee set to vote on the proposal on July 21.

A six-year odyssey will come down to just 45 minutes for Brisbane to secure Queensland’s Olympic dream.

Before the vote, Queensland’s bid will make one final 45-minute presentation to the IOC before a nerve-racking wait on a decision which could shape Queensland for an entire generation and deliver an $8b windfall to the state.

The bid needs 50 per cent of the vote from the 102-member IOC, but with several members unlikely to be in attendance, that could leave the fate of Brisbane in the hands of 48 delegates.

Brisbane’s bid has been given a dream runafter the IOC announced the city as the “preferred candidate”, but Australian Olympic Committee President John Coates said there was no room for complacency in the final two weeks of the campaign.

“This is the biggest prize in sport and you should never take that for granted,” he said.

“We’ve got to make the final presentation and make sure we address all the right issues.”

Mr Coates will join Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Brisbane Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner for the presentation, while Prime Minister Scott Morrison will appear via videolink.

The Brisbane bid is in uncharted waters after the IOC made changes to the hosting process, ending the practice of intense lobbying between rival delegates.

The pandemic has given rise to more challenges, leading to some anxious moments in the final run to the finish line for hosting rights to the biggest event on the planet.

Queensland government modelling forecasts a 20-year windfall from hosting the Games, both in the decade before and decade following the event, with estimates of an $8.1b economic bonanza for Queensland and $17.6b across the country.

A Queensland Olympics, centred on the southeast but with venues across the state, would also create an estimated 123,000 jobs. 

The benefits to the state’s tourism industry could sustain the sector for a generation. 

Queensland Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the potential benefits for Queensland would be “transformational”.

“We know the Games are likely to supercharge our COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan,” he said.

“An Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2032 could also help accelerate the development of sporting and transport infrastructure for our growing State and boost international trade and tourism. 

“This is about delivering meaningful, lasting benefits for the community and putting Brisbane and Queensland on the world stage.”

Queensland Tourism Industry Council CEO Daniel Gschwind said winning the vote in two weeks would lead to a huge increase in exposure for the state which would translate into priceless promotion.

“Never has it been more important to fly the flag for our destination – it is a rallying cry for now and for the future and one we should all support,” he said.

“There could never be a bigger stage for Brisbane, Queensland and Australia to present itself in the best light possible.

“If Queensland is named to host of the 2032 Olympic Games – hosting the world – we’ll see an immediate spike in interest from prospective visitors.

“An announcement in Queensland’s favour would prompt millions of people right around the world to take an interest in Queensland.

“No amount of marketing spend can buy this kind of positive exposure.”

Sydney’s Olympics more than 20 years ago were credited with delivering an extra 1.6 million visitors each year and Brisbane bid officials will hope for similar success at a time when the coronavirus pandemic is likely to be a distant memory and international travel returns to pre-pandemic levels.

Tourism agencies across Queensland are believed to be already working on campaigns to launch a charm offensive if the state receives the green light in a fortnight.

Don’t worry, this petition isn’t going to stop the Premier going to Tokyo and taking part in the Brisbane 2032 presentation.  

The Australian Government which controls the borders fully supports  the Bid and is allowing its exemptions for it’s own Sports Minister and Premier Palaszczuk to travel to Tokyo to help win the Games.

IOC Session - Day 1 - Olympic Games 2032
21 July 2021

Likely running sequence for this the very first host 
election under the IOC rules announced in 2019

While this Vote on Brisbane will be the first Host to voted on under the new rules, it’s very likely to follow a very similar sequence to the low key double-awarding of Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028 at the same IOC Session.

It was low key in 2017 because it was a rubber-stamping exercise not a traditional, tense firece rivalry amid a dramatic build-up to the final announcement.

Review this 2017 IOC announcement on this official *Olympic Channel youtube video fully and freely available to the public:

From that IOC Session in 2017, are strong clues as to how the Brisbane 2032 Session is likely to run, along these lines:

21 July 2021 - 138th IOC Session, Tokyo
  1. IOC President Thomas Bach invites the following two speakers to officially present the findings of the Future Host Commission - Brisbane 2032
  2. Kristin Kloster Aasen - Chair Future Host Summer Commission
  3. Gilbert Felli - Olympic Games Executive Director (possibly)
  4. Q&A: IOC President Bach invites questions of the two speakers from IOC Members.
  5. IOC President Bach Invites Presentation from Brisbane 2032 Team and advises the Session that following the Brisbane presentation that the Session will immediately proceed to the Vote.
  6. The Brisbane 2032 Presentation will likely include video presentation/s and various speakers including the Premier of Queensland, the Mayor of Brisbane Adam Schrinner and the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison via video.
  7. Pre-vote Procedures Briefing - IOC President Bach thanks the Brisbane 2032 Team and others who have contributed. President Bach advises the Session that a Vote for Brisbane 2032 is proposed to be by a show of hands and asks if any IOC Member objects to this. If no objections, the IOC President reminds the Session that in accordance with the IOC’s conflict of interest policies that Australian members of the IOC cannot take part in the Vote. If there is a “tie”,the IOC President has the deciding vote. Brisbane is elected with support from 51% of votes indicated by a show of hands.
  8. The Vote The IOC President invites by a show of hands by IOC Members to award Brisbane the 2032 Summer Games.
  9. The Announcement: IOC President will then either announce. (a) that the vote is clearly passed and Brisbane is elected, or (b) if a majority vote is unclear, he will call for a count of hands, or (c) if it is abundantly clear that a majority did not raise their hands, then IOC President announces that the Vote is not passed and that Brisbane is not elected and returns to the Continuous Dialogue phase where the other 2032 Bidders remain parked.
  10. Host Contract Signing: If elected, the Brisbane 2032 team are invited to the stage to sign the 2032 Host Contract.

The IOC President invites by a show of hands by IOC Members to award Brisbane getting the 2032 Summer Games.

Then asks if anyone is against Brisbane to raise their hands. After that, he asks if any abstensions to raise their hands.

New Electronic Vote:   Brisbane 2032

Actually, the Show of Hands voting procedure appears to have been discontinued by the IOC in 2019 in favour of a new electronic voting procedure adopted for the 2026 Winter Host vote between Milano Cortina and Stockholm Are.  

It’s very likely the IOC will also use this electronic vote procedure again in Tokyo for the Brisbane 2032 Vote.

You can watch here the new IOC electronic voting system within this freely available youtube video of the 2026 vote at approx. 2h 30m into the video: 

Election of Host for Winter Olympic Games 2026

* * * *

 

On 21 July,  following the Brisbane Team presentation this how we might expect things to run:

IOC President Thomas Bach introduces Christophe De Kepper IOC Director-General and member of IOC Executive Board who runs the Vote.

Test Vote - electronic device 

  • Christophe De Kepper announces the names of the IOC Voting Scrutineers
  • “Before the real vote on Brisbane 2032 Olympic, we shall  now carry out a Test Vote so that you are familiar with the voting system.”
  • “The electronic voting keepers have already been placed at your table and the smart card card will now be distributed.”
  • Voting Instructional Video:  “We shall now see a short instructional video on how to use the electronic voting system”   (This includes inserting the smart card into the device and how to submit their vote)
  • Test Vote procedure then occurs

Actual Vote - electronic device

  • On the question of awarding Brisbane 2032 the Olympic Games, the voting device presents 3 options to select:  “Yes”, “No” or “Abstain”
  • Christophe De Kepper declares the vote open
  • Christophe De Kepper declares the vote closed

The Announcement

  • Scrutineers then examine the vote and deliver their findings and the IOC President announces the result.

Host City Contract Signed if Brisbane 2032 is elected
