Such a shame we have not yet heard anything about a possible Dubai 2020 bid

[Heat on to find bidders for 2020 Summer Olympics


By Pirate Irwin (AFP) – 3 days ago

DURBAN, South Africa — The race to win the right to host the 2020 Summer Olympics does not look like being as hotly-contested as the memorable pursuit of the 2016 edition, a source close to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) told AFP.

Rome are the only known candidates, although September remains the deadline.

However, the feeling around the present IOC Session was that the Italian capital could end up being awarded the Games in a walkover.

Both Tokyo and Madrid - losers the last time round - had been mentioned as potential bidders but both have problems to be addressed.

Hopes of a Paris bid were already dim - Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe is still in power and was the mayor when London stunned the French capital for the 2012 Games - and has now been ruled out after Annecy received a paltry seven votes in the 2018 Winter Games vote on Wednesday.

Thoughts too that Durban might rethink after hosting the vote and the IOC Session this week are likely to prove illusory as the government has already said they would rather spend the money on social projects.

There is also the possibility that Doha would throw their hat into the ring again after being rejected at the first hurdle last time.

No further news from Dubai has been reported after it declared an intention to host the 2020 summer games in 2008.

But after the disastrous fallout from their winning the hosting of the 2022 World Cup they may prefer to let memories of that dim a little.

IOC president Jacques Rogge had been at pains on Wednesday following South Korea's Pyeongchang's crushing first round victory to say that their win did not rule out a Tokyo bid for the Summer Games.

"We're dealing with two different issues -- winter sports and summer sports," said Rogge.

"This result (Pyeongchang's victory) is in no way an obstacle for a bid from Asia for the 2020 Games."

Tokyo governor Shintaro Ishihara - a leading member of the previous campaign which saw them go out in the second round in Copenhagen in 2009 - insisted that Tokyo would bid.

"There are things we must do," he said the day after Pyeongchang's victory.

"We will do this even if we have to do this twice, three times, four times. We will (campaign) as a national effort," he added.

However, scepticism has been voiced by Japanese Olympic Committee President Tsunekazu Takeda following the South Koreans' victory and that was firmed up by the source.

"I really don't think that a Tokyo bid is either feasible or image-wise would sit very well with lots of people still living in tents following the tsunami," the source told AFP.

The northeast coast of Japan's main Honshu island was devasatated by a 9.0 magnitude quake and monster tsunami on March 11 which left some 23,000 people dead or missing.

The disasters also crippled the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, triggering the world's worst atomic accident since Chernobyl in 1986 and forcing hundreds of thousands of residents to leave their homes.

Madrid's chances too were not given much hope by the source.

"Their economy is in such a state and the rate of unemployment so high that I cannot imagine the state could justify underwriting a bid and also I do not believe that it will have much public support...both crucial parts of any bid," he said.

We will need all the imaginary tram lines to be abandoned and once islands like the Palm Jumeirah sink, we can consider it. But before all that, Dubai's entire population has to run away and leave their cars all over Sheikh Zayed Road because the economy is completely dead, right?

Well Face here we have it, Dubai won't bid for the 2020 Olympic Games, but will most likely put in a bid for 2024.

Olympics- Dubai opts out of 2020 bid, targets 2024

DUBAI, July 29 | Fri Jul 29, 2011 4:36am EDT

DUBAI, July 29 (Reuters) - Dubai will not enter a bid for the 2020 Olympic Games, instead opting to enter the race to host the event four years later, in 2024, a statement released by the Gulf Arab emirate's media office said on Friday.

The National Olympic Committee of the United Arab Emirates had been eyeing a 2020 bid but decided a later one may be better timed, although it estimated 70 percent of infrastructure to host the event was in already place or in the planning stages.

"We fully intend to place a bid once I am totally satisfied that we are prepared to host the greatest sporting event in history in a way that would add value to the Olympic Movement itself," Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, a chairman of one of the Olympic planning committees, was quoted as saying in the government statement.

The emirate of Dubai, business hub of the UAE's seven-emirate federation, has aimed to draw various major sporting events to its coastal city, known for luxury hotels and glittering skyscrapers jutting out of a desert landscape.

It has hosted several world championships in sports such as golf, swimming and tennis in recent years.

In his statement on the Olympic bid decision, Sheikh Hamdan alluded to recent youth-driven uprisings that swept much of the Arab world, including neighbouring Oman and Bahrain.

"Our energy needs to go first and foremost to achieving a just and lasting peace for our youth as the bedrock to a future bid which is most likely for the 2024 Olympic Games," he said.

The UAE, the world's third largest oil exporter with a small local population and the eight highest per capita income in the world, has been spared from the regional unrest. (Reporting by Erika Solomon; Editing by John O'Brien)

I found this.......

Quote:
BIDDING ON A WORLD EXPO

SUBMISSION OF CANDIDACY APPLICATION
The government of the state wishing to organize an Expo must submit its candidacy application to the BIE, mentioning the proposed theme, the proposed date, the duration, the legal status of the organizers, and the guarantee of government support.

For World Expos, the candidacy application must be submitted a maximum of nine years before the proposed opening date of the exhibition.

Beginning on the date that the first candidacy application is submitted to the BIE, any other government wishing to organize an exhibition for the same year has six months to submit its own candidacy application to the BIE.

BIDDING (PRIOR TO BIE MEMBERS VOTE)
A) ENQUIRY MISSION – PROJECT ASSESSMENT

At the end of the six-month period following the submission of the first candidacy application, enquiry missions are carried out by the BIE in the candidate country/city - The enquiry missions assess the feasibility and viability of the Expo project, as well the political and social climate in the candidate country and city that would ensure necessary support for the Expo project.

The resulting report produced, is then submitted to the Executive Committee of the BIE for review, which then forwards the report with advice to the General Assembly.

The General Assembly decides which proposals the BIE will further investigate.

Once approved, the report forms the basis of evaluation by the BIE member countries during the vote.

B) INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN - PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

Furthermore, during the bidding phase, candidate countries must carry out international campaign to garner support for the project and develop their proposed themes in order to raise international interest around the proposed Expos - International symposiums, forums, and other activities are organized by the candidates to this end.

THE BIE MEMBERS VOTE
VOTING BY SECRET BALLOT

At the end of the bidding phase, a vote by secret ballot takes place at a BIE General Assembly to grant the right to host an Expo to a government for the chosen city and date.

Each member country has one vote

Each vote eliminates the bid with the lowest number of votes until only 2 bids are remaining.

The bid with a two thirds majority being the winner.

SUCCESSFUL BID – EXECUTION PLAN SUBMISSION

The host country then has up to 5 years prior to the Expo to submit to the BIE a complete and definitive plan of execution for the World Expo.

REGISTRATION OF THE EXPO

This is the formal “go-ahead” from the BIE once the complete execution plan has been submitted and signed off enabling the host country to formally invite other member countries and organisations to participate in the World Expo.


EXAMPLE: BIDDING FOR A WORLD EXPO 2010 SHANGHAI CHINA



November 18, 1999: China declares its intention to bid to host the 2010 World Expo
May 2, 2001: Chinese government deposits its candidacy application to the BIE
2001 – 2002: Bidding phase and international campaigns by candidate countries for 2010 Expo

December 3, 2002: China is elected as Expo 2010 host at the 132nd General Assembly by the
BIE member states through a vote by secret ballot - Shanghai scored the highest in each of the
four rounds of voting.


(Yeosu Korea later won the bid to host Expo 2012, a three-month specialized world expo)

September 7, 2005: Chinese government submits its Expo registration dossier to the BIE
December 1, 2005: Expo registration dossier is approved by the 138th BIE General Assembly
2005 - 2010: Preparation phase
May 1 – October 31, 2010 (184 days): Expo
May 2001 – December 2002 = 20 month process)

EXAMPLE: BIDDING FOR A WORLD EXPO 2015 MILAN ITALY
October 16th 2006: Milan presents its candidacy application to the National Government.
October 27th 2006: The Italian Government selects Milan as official Italian candidate for the Expo 2015.
October 30th 2006: Presentation at B.I.E. of the Candidacy Application for Milan's candidacy to Universal Exposition 2015, with the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life".
November 3rd 2006 : Italy and Turkey for Europe The two European candidates for the Expo 2015 are Milan and Smirne. The competition between Italy and Turkey is starting.
December 19th 2006: Milan at B.I.E. In this date at the B.I.E. it is officially presented the whole possible Milan's project for the Expo 2015.
June 20th 2007: the B.I.E. meet in Paris This date corresponds to the 141st B.I.E. (Bureau International des Expositions) Assembly, in occasion of which the candidacies' dossiers for the Expo 2015 are reintroduced.
March 31st 2008: BIE General Assembly at the Palais des Congres of Paris, the city of Milan prevails over the city of Izmir, Turkey with 86 votes in favour against the 65 against.
(October 2006 – March 2008 = 18 month process)

I guess it's almost certain now. Dubai 2024, here we come


Quote:
Dubai ‘might shift 2024 Olympics to winter’



Dubai has spent billions of dollars on sports facilities to host global events including the Dubai Desert Classic and the Dubai World Cup


The 2024 Olympics could be shifted from their usual dates in August to sidestep the summer heat if Dubai won the rights to host the event, a member of the UAE’s Olympic Committee said.

The Gulf emirate said last week it would likely bid to host the 2024 global tournament after deciding it would better timed than a pitch for the earlier 2020 games.

Speaking to Arabian Business, Saeed Abdul Ghaffar Hussain, the secretary general of the UAE’s National Olympic Committee, said: “History shows that it was shifted before…..the weather is never an issue.”

The panel plans to undertake a number of studies to present to the International Olympic Committee to outline Dubai’s capability for hosting the games, he said.

“This is how it will be presented and whether it has to be put on the actual time during the month of July or August or shifted to another time.”

Dubai, famous for his luxury hotels, has spent billions of dollars on sports facilities that host a number of international events including the Dubai Desert Classic and the Dubai World Cup.

According to the government, a feasibility study into Dubai's capability for hosting the Olympics found as much of 70 percent of the required infrastructure was already in place or planned

The emirate could compete with as many as 14 other global cities for the rights to host the 2024 games, including Paris, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Madrid and Kiev.

Neighbouring Qatar in December netted a surprise win to host the 2022 World Cup, but has attracted much criticism for its decision not to deviate from the planned dates and hold the tournament during the hot summer months.

Qatar, which spent million on dollars on wooing the FIFA voting panel, plans to use air-cooled stadiums to defeat the desert state’s 50C heat.

Hussain said Dubai was just as prepared as any other bidding city to manage the Olympics, adding the decision to delay its pitch for the games would allow more time to prepare its own Olympic candidates.

“Dubai is ready. Look at the infrastructure in the UAE. We have top-class infrastructure. Okay, we might lack bits and pieces here and there but we are talking about 2024, which is 13 years away from now,” he said.

“In my opinion in thirteen years you can build a new generation of sporting stars.”

Good call Face.

Back to our aviation talk, even though it's another thread. I have a gut feeling if Dubai manages to get the 2024 Olympics we have a very good chance of DWC being up, and running by then.

Whats your call on this one ?

Just imagine what Dubai will look like by then ? Lets hope all the Palms, World, and NHT are all finished.

Give me a D..................

Give me a U..................

Give me a B.................

Give me a A......................

Give me a I....................

Yeah, I guess you're right. Most of DWC should be finished by then, though EK may be fully in control of DXB at that point, with JXB catering to all other airlines. I would imagine one or two more metro lines being completed and bits of Dubailand also being finished.

The whloe thing may even bring Bawadi back to life?

I wonder where they would put the Olympic Village? Would it be part of Dubai Sports City, or would it be something brand new, built elsewhere? Perhaps a good use of the few islands reclaimed as part of the Palm Deira? What do you think?


Mods, title change, please

Yes, it has been done in the past and it can certainly be done again. The IOC has already allowed a window for bid cities to inform them of this. I think April would probably be a better month than September, but October is a better month than April, so it depends which would suit the IOC best?
