What if Brisbane 2032 will be open by a "President of Australia"?

 

 

I doubt it. theirs no mood for constitutional change, and even if a referendum does happen i would not expect it to pass as the bar is so high (a majority of voters, in a majority of states - you can't just get 50%+1 in votes, you also need all the states to vote for it as well- something hardly ever happens)

First look at Brisbane’s 2032 Olympics athlete village

 

 

The Queensland government has released concept images of its 2032 Olympic athletes’ village, which it hoped would do for the Northshore Hamilton area what Expo ’88 did for South Bank.
 
Deputy Premier Steven Miles said the more than 10,000-bed village construction on the largely industrial site, about six kilometres from the Brisbane CBD and within a longstanding state priority development area, would rejuvenate the land and crystallise the long-term plan.

I know its not great, but i think its an issue with the digital billboard and my phone, bu here is a photo i took this morning of the billboard thats on a dew digital billboards across Brisbane. I've seen this in both portrait and landscape - it's the first official reference to the games I've seen as the host city. I'm still keeping my eyes open as i am out and about for the first signs of the rings

They’ll be coming off the mountain when the Games come - Brisbane Times - July 29, 2021

“The 2032 Olympic Games could be the catalyst for Brisbane’s commercial television networks shifting from Mt Coot-tha after almost 60 years on the mountain.”

“While the networks say they have no immediate plans, they are now eyeing new sites closer to Brisbane’s CBD as the city begins its decade-long march towards the 2032 Olympics.”

What are the details of the main stadium that will be used? 

Will it be a new stadium? any photos?

The Brisbane Cricket Ground stadium, known as the Gabba will be demolished and rebuilt as the Olympic Stadium, capacity 50,000 due to the tight space it sits in.

Here are 2 video links:

Thanks for this.

50,000 is low, is this the lowest capacity for a modern olympic Games? Given that by 2032 the games will be be well back to normal, this could affect ticket revenue, especially for ceremonies.

This is the New Norm.  This is the way Hosts are now selected and there were no “COVID factors” in the decision re the Briabane 2032 Olympic Stadium.

The new era began with Brisbane 2032 where any new venues must demonstrate legacy use after the Games.

Legacy usage is driving the Gabba Stadium rebuild, not the Olympic Games.

In the Brisbane sports market a 50,000 seat stadium with crowds for it’s long term tenants of Australian Rules Football and Cricket which use the Stadium for 40 weeks per year.

It matters little that it will be the smallest main stadium at an Olympic Games since 1952 at Helsinki.

The 2032 Olympic Games will merely benefit from this new hi-tech Olympic Stadium.

It will still be plenty big enough for crowd atmosphere to roar and spur on the athletes.

exactly. the gabba was getting to the point where a pull down and rebuild was needed anyway - Brisbane has almost lost its covered spot of holding the first cricket test match each summer because of the facilites.

But on the same artickle they forget München, which are on there own list, and are smaller... Thats a weird article...

But how was Helsinki games? a succes even if so small? 

I think these games in Tokyo without public in the venues, show that small venues also good work fine. And just a few thousand could just make a good show, and size don´t matter at all. Im actually surprised how much I like the sport and don´t miss the spectators as much as i thoutht i would.

I agree the article was a bit odd.

And yes Helsinki 1952  was a very second successful post-war edition of the successful Games following London in 1948.

The 2016 Census showed South East Queensland (SEQ) population at 3.8m and Brisbane itself at 2.28m.

SEQ is currently experiencing an absolutely booming population with many moving in from other parts of Australia, well before Brisbane won the Games. This week’s timely National Census will reveal the exact size of this influx.

The Brisbane 2032 is a regional Olympic Games encompassing three significant population centres: Brisbane (+2.28m), Gold Coast (+540,000) and Sunshine Coast (+333,000).

Yes loving the sport too at these Games but Tokyo 2020 is very much lacking in the crowd noise, roaring and cheering, etc.  They’ve done the best they can but ….

Can’t wait for spectators to return to the Games in the next few years.

Apart from the main stadium, I’m expecting crowds at Brisbane’s venues, to be just as big and buzzing as our last Olympic Games in Sydney.

But can you really hear if there are 40.000 og 70.000 when you watch sport on tv? I don´t think so.

We’re talking simply here of not hearing any crowds at these Tokyo Games.Crowds.

We’re not talking of hearing 40,000 or 70,000 because that is irrelevant since there zero ticket holding spectators at any venue at these Games.

There’s only a very small number of accredited athletes and officials allowed in to watch events

It’s personal opinion but even as a tv spectator, there is no crowd noise and visuals of hordes of people cheering.

Many of the athletes interviewed at these Games have remarked in media interviews that they miss the crowds.  It’s even more stark in the cavernous empty Olympic Stadium.

It can’t be helped but no way do I ever want to witness such an empty spectatcle ever again.

  Big Kudos to the athletes themselves for their performances but even they miss the crowds to motivate them and make it feel like an Olympic Games.

I’ve been to two Games as a spectator and volunteer and it’s sad to hear the echo of athletes as they compete in empty venues.

Yes of course you are right. But we talk about different things. My point goes that the venue dont have to be the biggest to make a good games :)
