Is the same case that Doha and the Lusail Stadium in Al Daayen...
There is no such city as aldaayen, there is only a minucipality and what ever built areas that are in it are adjacent to Doha, therefore part of Doha. The bid file Never stated it's going to be in "another city".

There are several negative points to pick on Doha, this is certainly not one of them.

For FIFA it's a different city, for the IOC it's apparently not. Who knows? It's only a few km from the centre of Doha anyhow, whereas the two Spanish cities are 70 miles away from one another. The comparison's a bit unfair on Doha really.

Alrayyan is right, Doha has much bigger things to worry about.

The rules are the same for all and can┤t be twisted. Is not serious that the Lusail Stadium was in Al Daayen for the WC bid and in Doha for the Olympic bid.

I do not like the fashion that has been Rio doing the ceremonies outside the Olympic Stadium. The IOC should to force all applicant cities do in the same stadium

I don't mind the whole 2 stadium deal, it's just that it should be the odd occurrence, with, logical reasoning behind it (such is the case with Rio) and not twice in a row!

Do the Opening and Closing ceremonies have to take place within the city limits/city proper of the host city? Because the Stade de France in the Paris metropolitan area is outside the city limits/city proper of Paris.

Yet it's still part of the Paris Region and can be considered part of the city, as it's effectively governed by the Paris Region as a whole.

For example, if an NYC Olympics wanted the Olympic Stadium (which would host Ceremonies) to be in Medowlands, New Jersey, this wouldn't work, simply because Medowlands is not governed by the State of New York even though it's supposedly part of Greater New York. Then the bid would have to be marketed as Greater New York and not New York City.

As for Doha, I'm certain that the IOC would either request a change in Ceremonies venue or make an unprecedented exception (due to how small the country is and that Lusail is probably governed and under the jurisdiction of some Doha or Capital Region entity anyways). Alternatively one could argue that Lusail is just a suburb of Doha. :P

Asking the same or similar questions countless time will be considered as spam or trolling.

Please refrain.

I think the poll should be re-run, given that Rome has dropped out. Will be interesting to see what people chose instead of Rome.....
