Why the question? Is Portugal a country only dependent on E.U. finance?! Sure the money is important, but the country doesn't rely on this source to hold any type of world event. In fact, I think, these huge projects are a blessing for this nation.

If an European city gets the games in 2012, nope, I won't vote for Lisbon.

So your answer is that no E.U money is necessary to hold the games in Lisbon?

To my Portugese friends...I would definitely want the Olympics in Lisbon for 2016. I wasn't able to come to portugal for the EURO so this would be an excellent opportunity to visit your beautiful country.

Go Lisbon!!!


p.s. to all those doubters...Greece did not get a penny from the EU for the Olympics just as Portugal did not get a penny for the EURO from the EU. these stereotypes have to stop because they are getting offensive, and quite frankly, pathetic.

Lisbon has all the capacities to host an Olimpics just look at athens.. we have probably the same size, population etc.. i dont think if the O.G are the best thing for Portugal right now.. i think we could invest that money on other things but thats my opinion! anyway i dont why u guys are worring about the O.G in 2o12 wiil go to Madrid or Paris or London so Lisbon won´t stand a chance in 2016..

After seeing how thegames have transformed cities like Barcelona and Athens into beutiful modern cities I doubt Lison which is already so great will have any problem doing it.
Athens proved to the world that small countries can host amazing Olympics, an "unforgettable dream games" to be exact. Contrary to some peoples beliefs Athens is more beutiful today than ever before and now is modern and one of the cleaner cities in Europe with all kinds of state of the art public transportation. I am not saying this to brag about Athens but to show the great effects an Olympic ames can leave on a city and country.

I hope in 2016 Portugal will have it's chance to shine.

4 monts before the 2004 games people said Athens could not host it and look what happened:


Proved all the nay sayers wrong and hosted a great Olympics. I am fully confident Lisbon can as well.

Lisbon can definately host the games....


But if a European country wins 2012 (Paris, London, Madrid) then no chance for another European country in 2016.

Yes.
Obviously I'm not refering to the new airport and to some new freeways(Lisbon has almost all needed) that will have to be built and some or other minor infra-structure that does not imply sports.
