Yeah I don't know what they have planned for sure.. But it seems like they are in serious talks with the IOC. Let's see in the coming days years.

Did you miss the part of the article you quoted where it says the planned visit is for 2025?  As in 3 years from now.  Maybe let's pump the brakes a little on what we think is happening here.

Quick reminder again that Gujarat is Modi‘s home base. That‘s the only reason there is so much investment there, plus of course the personal cult of naming a sports complex or stadium after a reigning politician should already put the IOC of it, if the monsoon and Modi‘s hindu superior policy don‘t do the trick.

Let‘s hope by 2036, or even better already by the time the IOC decides, he and his authoritarian gang will be history already.

India will be an important market for the IOC in the future so perhaps they're already planning to ditch the July-August rule after their NBC contract expires in 2032 in order to host an Olympics there?

Is the IOC, all of the sudden, not going to continue to want anymore of NBC's broadcasting $$$ AFTER 2032, though? And I'm sure that it's not only NBC, but also all of the European, Canadian & Japanese broadcasters that prefer the July-Aug time window as well. That's a lot of potential moola, combined, for the IOC to just blatantly not consider the interests of where it's coming from. And by the time 2025 comes around, surely the Games beyond 2032 will be coming into play as far as broadcasting rights are concerned.

Why will India become a more important market for the IOC in the future than they are now?  Maybe let's not read into this that suddenly India is a big deal to the IOC to the point they're going to give up on the preferred window for the games.  Aside from FYI's point that it's not just an American preference, all the more reason for the IOC to stick to that formula so that NBC or whoever else bids for the rights can maximize their value.  Because they're not going to get those big bucks out of India

if so, maybe ABC or CBS could be returning their Olympic broadcast rights if so NBC has done so since 1964 as a longtime Olympic broadcaster.

ABC doesn't have a sports division anymore, so any involvement on their part is going to come from ESPN.  CBS doesn't seem like they'll be interested, although with a streaming platform in need of content, who knows if that changes.  Don't discount Fox entering the ring.  Or perhaps a big tech company if they want to partner with an OTA network.

Hard to imagine another network other than NBC showing the Olympics, but it's certainly not automatic that it's theirs to hold onto forever

It is really hard to find another network depending on the country's NOC.

I'm sure there is something serious developing between the IOA and the IOC. Otherwise why would they say that officials will come to visit the sports complex in 2025? But I mean there's still barely any information to say that a solid bid is emerging.

It's not uncommon for IOC officials to visit sports facilities. I could see the visit going along the lines of "looks nice but figure out how to host a successful Commonwealth Games or Asian Games then we can talk." Even then, given India's horrid track record for completing infrastructure projects on time and on budget, I wouldn't get tok hopeful this sports complex gets done in the time they say it will.

Not an issue in the United States where there are multiple over the air networks and lots of media companies that need content.  Just about anywhere else, you're right.  But that's also why media rights in the United States are so valuable, especially that TV networks aren't government-backed like they are in most countries, not to mention that the USOPC is privately funded as well, so the entire business model of the Olympics in the US is unique in that regard.

I agree that India should consider hosting a commonwealth games or Asian games. The 2026 commonwealth games went to Victoria in Australia and the Asian games are all booked up. I think India has a strong chance at hosting the 2030 Youth Olympics. That could be the first event they should target.

Sorry Sportguys, but very heavy rainfall in July/August kills Ahmedabad’s chances of hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The IOC require that the Games can only be held in July/August which is the heaviest two months of rainfall of the entire year in Ahmedabad.

That kills of Ahmedabad’s chances as 291mm / 11 inches of rain in it’s wettest month of July.  266mm / 10 inches if rain in it’s secibd wettest month of August.

Careful, guys. Otherwise, you might be accused of being timeframe/rainfall complainers (to say the least), simply for stating the facts of the situation, & not being able to 'imagine weird scenarios'. :rolleyes: 'Every bid has their cons'.

Yeah the rain is a big issue. But what will happen if the games are held in the similar time frame of Sydney 2000? Their's was from September 15 to October 1st. That could be a potential solution.

Because of pressure from the NBC and the billions it pours into it’s broadcasting rights,  IOC have not shifted from the July/August timeslot requirement in any Games since Sydney 2000.   Money talks.

There is no indication since Sydney 2000 that the IOC will ever budge from this.

In fact, the southern Australian capitals of Sydney itself and Melbourne too can never host the Games again because of this now strict hosting requirement as it’s just too and cold wet in July/August.  Ahmedabad 2032 and 2036 too as it’s far too wet.  It’s not going to happen.

It’s why the northern Australian city of Brisbane was elevated over Sydney or Melbourne as a candidate for 2032 by the Austtalian Olympoc Committee because it was well aware that Brisbane was the only Australian capital where the July/August weather is perfect for athletes.  

Qatar 2032 or 2036 too are not going to host an Olympics either but they are still, to this day, deluded to think that the IOC are suddenly going to allow them to host in December like the FIFA World Cup, as it’s far far too hot in July/August.  It’s not going to happen.

The NBC rights end after 2032 but there is no sign that any USA broadcast rights holder are going to budge from NBC’s existing big money demand of the IOC that the Olympics are only held in July/August.

Yes, the weather in Brisbane is absolutely perfect since the Queensland near Gold Coast where the 2018 Commonwealth Games was hosted. Queensland's coastal cities are perfect for July and August.

It can still get chilly at night. Heck, it’s even been known to snow on the ranges nearby.

For athletic performance, Brisbane’s average July/August weather is ideal.
