Copenhagen/Malmö 2036


Recommended Posts

I have tried to make a short document for my suggestion for venues etc for a bid from Copenhagen/Malmö for 2036.  My english is not the best. I had made a bigger document in danish with more details. But tried to translate. Sorry if not all is translated correctly. 

I thought i could upload it here, but no. So i tried to give you this link you should be able to see it (I hope):  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1osP21C1v1HY1s-lNTrbeRPV_5j-D9yI4C1WPRgR_5Qk/edit?usp=sharing

Looking forward to comments.

I would love to see a games in that part of the world.  You have put a lot of thought into the venues and based off your document it seems that the Copenhagen/Malmö area has most of the venues needed.  I have not been to Copenhagen yet so I can't really give any detailed feedback.  My main question would be if the area has enough accommodation for visitors?  I hope that we see a Copenhagen bid in the near future.

But how many are needed? If some of the venues are a bit smaller, also the accomodation for visitors can be smaller. By that time Hamburg is less than 3 hours by train, and of course cruiseships to help also. Copenhagen are increasing the fascilities for big cruise ships in the harbour already, and the metro are going to have a line out near that part of the harbour.

Hvidovre Stadium makes no sense for Field Hockey. Why not have it at Malmø Stadium and New Malmø Stadium? You have a potential 14,000 - 18,000+ All seated venue at Malmø Stadium and the rectangular New Malmø Stadium would host finals at a 22,000 seater capacity.
 

Parken makes sense as a roofed venue that could be divided to host 2 indoor team sports.
 

Ballerup  Superarena has a capacity of 3,700 seated in Track Cycling mode. Just keep it as is. It might be able to host another indoor sport (Montreal's Velodrome did), but expect no more than 5,000.
 

Equestrian should be held at a dedicated Equestrian Centre.
 

Baseball/Softball should be in it's own venue, a football stadium simply won't work.
 

You forgot Malmö Isstadion. That could serve an indoor sport. Malmömässan could also serve something.

Tennis would need it's own dedicated venue.

 

Bella Center, site of the 2009 IOC session would be the Main Media Centre. The land next door could serve as a media village.

Thanks a lot for the feedback. 

Regarding to field hockey I must admit i don´t know much about the sport, so i just picked a place with 1 tribune, and then 3 temp venues could be added around it, in the size needed. Malmø new stadium I have placed Rugby. And i have placed Baseball/softball at Malmø Stadium, because it has an athletic track, and i think it could be ajusted to fit those kind of stadiums with adding some temp seatings to match the playground but not a sport that we know much about here I must admit. 

We could also use Herning stadium (small 3 hours from Copenhagen) for the Equestian, they host the World Championschip next year. And there is also a nearby indoor venue for 10.000 people that could be used for something. But i would try to keep it near Copenhagen. Of course the venue etc shall be temp rebuild and added temp seating for the equestian. 

I have Malmø Icestadium with, i have placed boxing in it. 

Regarding to Parken, why not tennis in one half? If completely covered, then we could make it for 4 indoor venues i believe. A basketcourt, Volleycourt etc is not very big, so there are plenty of room as I see it. 

Regarding to Malmömessen i don´t know that. So yes of course a possibility. But is the roof high enoug to make a good venue?

Yes of course. I have placed 2 big courts inside "Parken" and the smaller ones outside. 

I would still opt for a dedicated tennis Center and use Parken as a dual indoor venue like Atlanta did with the Georgia Dome.

Malmömessen is large enough to host something. They hosted Eurovision once. Otherwise, this would be a media subsite. 

Malmø and New Malmø Stadium is perfect to have temporary hockey pitches.

I don't know if Copenhagen could host the 2036 Olympic and Paralympic Games since Denmark has never hosted the Olympic and Paralympics Games before, Sweden have hosted the Olympics before which is Stockholm in 1912.

Neither Sweden nor Denmark each by itself can host a 21st century SOG.  They've gotten so large.  A Stockholm-Malmo-Copenhagen tandem might work.  At least 3 villages housing est 3,500 bodies each wouldn't be a shock to the housing stock of each city when the Games are over.  Opening in Stockholm, Closing in Kobenhaven.

an eventual copenhagen/malmö games would actually be named as öresund 2036

the öresund-bridge connects those 2 cities in just a flyover over 14 km connected with freeway and train

ÖRESUND 2036

opening ceremony in copenhagen

closing ceremony in malmö

(in stead of stockholm could rescue something)
