but if you look at the list of names, Durban does not realy have a chance to my opinion. The most people I think don't know where Durban is... I am sorry but it is the trueth. So I hope for Durban they have some consertium like Coca Cola there, otherwise I don't think they have a chance...

Durban? no way... I am sorry, but forget about it... start with getting a grand prix or something to make name,
The WC 2010 does not do miracles, specialy when there 8-10 more cities to share the glory with....
I like geography and stuff and I know where Durban is , but before this forum I knew nothing about Durban (still don't) only that there are a lot of sharks.

as much as i support the growth of durbans international image through the world cup and a possible olympic bid..unfortunately the olympic committee being the real decider is what counts against durban at this stage.

Well I didnt say you suppose to know alot about Durban we still growing, CT & Joburg have already grown its our turn now, all I am saying in a few years to come, you will hear about us, because I am in the construction industry & seeing things happen! the building boom has just begun in Durban, we are transforming this place, hence I said wait & see.

oh & by the way the Cape area has more sharks than us, the great whites JUMP in those areas!

the list should be (i stand to be corrected)

chicago (as the front runner thus far in the US evaluation)
madrid will bid again
rome as milan dropped out
delhi has indicated they would bid
possibly buenos aires and rio de janeiro who according to the IOC have shown interest
berlin might bid, as well as moscow but sochi made the 2014 shortlist so im not so sure
bangkok and monterrey seem keen as well...
of course then the japanese with fukuoka or tokyo..but i suspect tokyo will get the nod

this will be shortlisted to IMO

chicago
tokyo
rome
madrid
rio/buenos aires
+ berlin if they bid

all ur points are valid..however remember that other cities will continue to grow even if durban is growing well...cape town, joburg, rio, buenos aires and other "developing" country cities will all continue to grow...these cities have not reached their true growth potential..

Yes no city can reach its true growth potenial, there is always room for more, but what I am trying to to say is that CT & joesie had started there growth along time ago therefor being recognised world wide, & while CT & joesie were doing this Durbs because of our sleepy parliment were doing nothing! now that we have some waked up guys in our council stuff is happening, once we start getting recognised who knows what can happen, the A1 Gp is just a start for us, hopefully the Zulu Rally (WRC) & other major events will be awarded to us before the confederations cup in 2009.

Dont forget...and i can get figures for this to prove it, construction in Durban at present is more than Joburg and CT combined (excluding the gautrain). So i see that as incredible growth.

But back on topic. Yes Durban is a long shot now, i dont doubt that for a second. our international rep is near zero, but that can and will change rapidly. I dont hink any south african city will hold the Olympics any time soon, not before 2024 at the earliest. And just because people know Joburg and CT better, doesnt mean that in 20 years Durban cant be more well known than them.

So i not getting into ur petty arguments, cos u all live in dream world half the time any way
