I think a city like Barcelona is far more liberal than Madrid.

Portugal -Lisboa, A Very Big NONO



Why????

After the European Championship of 2004, we saw people and the community suffering from not getting the proper attention.

All the money went to the new stadiums and the security.

Portugal is one of the most poorers country within the Europena Commonwealth. I think in Portugal they shuld focus on bringing more prosperity to there own people.

That is utter rubbish!!! I don't know whether that comment is the product of the prejudices and preconceptions you've been exposed to and fed or you heard it somewhere, sowndwave, but if at any time people suffered from lack of attention it wasn't certainly a consequence from organising the Euro. Please do refrain from posting such fallacious arguments if you know nothing about what you are talking about!!
Many thanks Fern

if you think so the you have stated you are a dumbass that is talking about something you don't know

spaniards are not racist.there are racist groups, yes.but not more than in other countries.so shut up your mouth

well, if moroccan people have a bad reputation in spain is not because they are moroccan, is because the most of them are dealing with drugs or stealing people with knifes.if they worked as all the people they would be accepted just like the other inmigrants

French Professional Football League Endorses Paris 2012
Posted 3:18 pm ET (GamesBids.com)

The French Professional Football League (LFP) announced it is endorsing Paris’ bid for the 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games by holding its matches under the colour of Paris 2012 this weekend and next weekend.

Across France the matches are taking place January 15, 16, 22 and 23 and the 22 players entering the field will wear Paris 2012 T-shirts and children, wearing the same T-shirts, will accompany them. Former Olympic champions and medallists will kick-off the Games.

Spectators in the stands will be provided with pennants featuring the colours of the French bid.

Philippe Baudillon, CEO of Paris 2012 said, “this show of support by the National Football League demonstrates a new momentum in the mobilization of the sporting world and the people of France behind the bid. For Paris 2012 this is another opportunity to demonstrate L’Amour des Jeux of the whole country and our nation’s dedication to the quest of becoming the host city of the 2012 Olympics.

Thierry Rey, promoter of the Paris 2012 bid, said he was looking forward to getting French players from the FA Premier League to stand in Trafalgar Square while wearing “Support Paris 2012” T-shirts. He said “that would show that although they are very involved in English football, there is a little part of them that shows that their country is important to them”.

Meanwhile, the French newspaper Le Parisien commented on the alleged remarks the Queen made that Paris would probably win the bid for the 2012 Summer Games. The newspaper wrote, “the Queen votes for Paris”, adding that the French capital “could not have dreamt of a better advertisement. The Queen has dented English hopes even more”.

A leading regional newspaper, L’Est Republicain commented, “The Queen has caused a scandal. At the headquarters of the Paris 2012 bid the organizers are loving it. The good news is piling up and Paris’ superb project is taking form day after day”.

Premiership to promote London bid

London will advertise its 2012 Olympic bid at every Premier League football game for the rest of the season.

A link-up with the Premier League will see the bid promoted on advertising boards and in match programmes.

"Hosting the Olympics would be a tremendous event for the whole country, not just London," said England and Spurs defender Ledley King.

"I remember Euro '96 and what an impact that had. Imagine what it would be like and how the public would react."

Tottenham captain King and Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore helped London bid leader Lord Sebastian Coe launch the campaign at White Hart Lane.

"Our games are now screened in 195 countries with a global home reach of over 600 million," said Scudamore.

"People all over the world will realise the significance of us backing London 2012."

And, in a similar move, the French Football League will support the Paris bid for the 2012 Games.

Over the next two weekends, all 22 players will wear Paris 2012 t-shirts and be accompanied by children wearing similar t-shirts while former Olympic champions and medalists will 'kick-off' the games.

London's bid team will take the football competition around the United Kingdom if the city wins hosting rights for 2012 when the International Olympic Committee votes on 6 July.

"We plan to share the Olympic experience by holding the competition at venues such as Villa Park, Old Trafford, St James' Park, the Millennium Stadium and Hampden Park," said Lord Coe.

The England team have already backed London's bid, with captain David Beckham appearing in a special promotional film.

cape town wont get the games?????? have u been reading the newspaper???? jacques rogge mentioned this week he wants the games in africa and wants south africa to concentrate on SA 2010 soccer world cup then bid for the olympics???
games will come to africa and most likely to cape town so what the hell are u talking about?
the only reason i said lisbon was too small is because i asked someone who lives there about euro and whether lsibon could host the games not to atack lisbon..why is everyone attacking cape towns venues of course they will all need upgrade and you cant compare us to athens at all i never suggested we had all our olympic venues completed far from that actually i just posted the little we have that could be used !!!!! why all the hostility? europe can host games after cape town!!!! wait a little bit, u compared some venues as if they were olympic venues gosh at least our velodrome has a roof athens velodrome did not have one before they plonked that white oval to make it look modern, its still open on the sides this venue like sydney is at least closed, i heard they use curtains when it rains to keep the rain out of the velodrome WOW what technology!!!
cape town is not better than eurpean cities altogether but its africas best chance to host the games thats all im saying

You should do the same: focus on the WC2010 and then in the O.G.2020 (10 yars of deifrence!)
Anyway,I think cape town has all the chances to win the host of the O.G.2020!And I suport it!
Lisbon, and Portugal, can be the best option for 2016. Excelent weather, excelent people that knows better then anyone to recieve, outstanding organizing capacities (proved in the euro2004),beautifull spots,awesome food, geographic conditions for various competitions...etc etc etc! Go Lisbon 2016!

I vote for Spain...

US---> hosting too many Olympics already
France---> same with you
Moscow---> Politically corrapted... if they have a lexury of building a sport arena.. please consider support your economy and spend more money on environmental problems. Very idiotic to host Olymic. They wanted to hosted for political reason and nothing else.
London---> no space???
