hngcm the stadium is used as both a rugby and football stadium, used by ajax cape town for football and western province as a rugby stadium, would u rather have those "football stadiums" with athletics tracks, no offense to athens but 4 of their 6 stadiums had athletics tracks. cape town would only use two with athletics tracks at most possibly even one.

It's pretty easy to have a dual-use Soccer and Rugby stadium, lots of places do both; Stade de France, Paris; Millenium Stadium, Cardiff; Stadium Australia, Sydney; Old Trafford, Manchester etc

Just for interests sake Cape Town would use the following venues in an olympic football competition:

FINALS at the Olympic Stadium (new) about 80,000 probably

Newlands Stadium 50,000



Athlone Stadium -

this stadium is cape towns 2010 main venue and would be upgraded by 2008 to about 40-60,000





Greenpoint Stadium


has an athletics track and currently seat 18,000 but would need major upgrades, might just be used as an athleics training venue




outside cape town

port elizabeth stadium 50,000




kings park stadium 60,000



soccer city 94,700

Future use of Athens Olympic venues up for tender

The Greek Government-owned Hellenic Olympic Properties has invited bidders to submit offers for the use of three of its Olympic Games venues.


Just under a year after the last Olympics took place, tenders have been submitted for use of the canoe and kayak venue in Hellinikon, the Goudi badminton hall and the main part of the International Broadcasting Centre in Maroussi, through an advertisement placed in the International Herald Tribune.

Bidders can use the facilities for sports and cultural events or for food and beverage services, according to the advertisement.

Since the event last August, hardly any of the 36 purpose-built stadiums, which cost more than E3bn, have been used. Wrangling between ministries and local authorities over ownership has hindered any decisions made on future use of the facilities.

Annual maintenance costs for the venues are reportedly estimated at around E90m.

The tenders are to run until 12 September.

The French mayor should really let go...

London’s Bid Breached Rules Said Paris Mayor – Blair Spokesman Calls It “Fair”
Posted 12:19 pm ET (GamesBids.com)

Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe said Monday that London’s winning bid for the 2012 Games breached the rules. Delanoe, president of the Paris 2012 bid, said London had not respected the rules of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) stating that meetings between bid officials and IOC members should be only informal.

He told reporters, “the IOC knows that (Prime Minister) Tony Blair had written to IOC members to offer to meet them”. Delanoe said Blair had then met IOC members in his hotel suite in Singapore before Wednesday’s vote. “Everybody was aware of it and could see it. That’s against the rules. I saw people coming out of Blair’s suite”.

Delanoe also suggested Monday that London had also breached the IOC rules by making comments on a rival bid, reports Reuters.

“It is stated that a bid should not make comments on another one. Out of the five bidding cities, which one did not respect that?”

According to Reuters he was apparently referring to comments before the vote by a member of London’s team who said the Stade de France in Paris was not built specifically for athletes.

Delanoe said he didn’t want to make a big fuss but “there’s no reason why I should remain silent”.

Delanoe denied having accused London of bribery. “All I said was that if Paris had used bribery to win the vote, we would have been reproached for it”.

Speaking at his first Paris council meeting Monday since the vote in Singapore Delanoe said, “I don’t say they flirted (with the yellow line), they crossed right over. Victory was decided on something other than Olympism”.

Meanwhile a spokesman for British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Monday that London’s winning bid was “fair”.

“We have no comment other than to point to what Mr. Rogge said, that it was a fair bid”.

Paris hosted the games in 1900 and then in 1924 too.

Has anyone worked out how aroundtherings.com knew about the result 5 minutes before it was announced? I don't think they would have guessed and put it on their website if they weren't sure.

Except they didn't keep it secret, aroundtherings was already proclaiming the winner to be london on their website at 12:40. I was reading this thread when someone posted the link.

Somebody at the IOC must have leaked the result to them.

Somebody probably got a text from someone in the room who already knew the result.
