That's top ten outside the UK due to the fact it's a British site. Either way, point taken. My vote would go to Cape Town if I could vote for it for 2016.

The world’s first binationally hosted Olympics should be staged in Tijuana and San Diego in 2016, says Malin Burnham, expressing his willingness to lead a formative effort.

Burnham, 76, one of San Diego’s most highly regarded business and civic leaders, already has spoken with International Olympics Committee President Jacques Rogge and Baja California Gov. Eugenio Elorduy Walther, who were both “very much interested” in staging the summer games across the controversial international border.

A competitive world-class yachtsman who chaired the 1992 America’s Cup regatta in San Diego, which university researchers estimated added $500 million to the regional economy, Burnham also was a primary force behind the formation of the new San Diego International Airport Authority and in 1986 helped establish the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista.

With thousands of athletes, hundreds of thousands of spectators and a worldwide television audience in the billions of people, the summer Olympics would present the hosts with enormous challenges never faced before by San Diego or Tijuana. Such a spectacle also would deliver unprecedented economic benefit to the region, easily in the billions of dollars, yielding improved highways, border crossings, sports, meeting and hospitality operations.

Culturally and historically, the benefits of working together on such a project could reduce the mutual suspicion that sometimes taints relations between San Diego and Tijuana, and between the U.S. and Mexico.

“There has never been a binationally hosted Olympics in history,” says Burnham. “If you think about the spirit of the Olympics, what better way of bringing two countries together than hosting an international Olympics in San Diego and Tijuana? That has a lot more extra appeal than any single country would have.”

San Diego Considers A 2016 Olympic Bid
Posted 12:22 pm ET (GamesBids.com)

A local San Diego television station, KGTV, reports that a feasibility study is being drafted to examine whether a San Diego bid for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games is possible. The proposed plan is to host the Games jointly with Tijuana.

KGTV reports that Malin Burham of the Binational Organizing Committee says watching the success of the 2002 Winter Olympic Game in Salt Lake City gave him the idea to try to bring the 2016 Games to San Diego, but he wants to make it a binational event with Mexico.

Although he knows a bid would involve a lot of work and cost billions of dollars for venues, infrastructure and improved transportation, Burham said the cost of all that would be paid for by the Olympic organization. “Fortunately local government doesn’t get involved other than endorsement”, he said.

But Gary Bonelli of the San Diego Association of Governments disagrees. While admitting that a San Diego-Tijuana Olympics would be a tremendous opportunity for the city he says everyone would pay the price of hosting the event, reports KGTV.

Bonelli said, “based on our experience hosting several Super Bowls…there are up-front costs that local governments would have to bear”.

According to KGTV the issue will be explored next week at a conference at the University of San Diego.

I doubt it will be held in Lisbon, simply because in 2012 it'll be in London. It will probably be somewhere outside Europe.

Give it to the western hemisphere... but not in the southern hemisphere, since they have winter in the Northern Hemisphere's summer.

Lets just give it US, might as well(not becuase I am bias), but neither city in the US work... give it to NYC, out of sympathy?

BA and Cape Town seem possible. Sao Paolo? Definitely a North American city (or two) will make the final four or five (NY again? SF? Toronto?).

A cross-border games would be a headache, especially between US and Mexico. The INS would not allow that.

As long as it's a city that didn't already host the olympics in the past, then I couldn't care less.
