The next three editions of the IAAF World Championships will be held in Daegu, KOR (2011), Moscow, RUS (2013) and Beijing, CHN (2015).

Berlin, GER (2009), Osaka, JPN (2007), Helsinki, FIN (2005), Paris St-Denis, FRA (2003), Edmonton, CAN (2001), Seville, ESP (1999), Athens, GRE (1997), Goteborg, SWE (1995), Stuttgart, GER (1993), Tokyo, JPN (1991), Rome, ITA (1987), Helsinki, FIN (1983).

IAAF
Quote:
Des Lettres d'intention reçues dans la perspective des Championnats du Monde de l'IAAF 2017


Monte Carlo – Tandis que la date limite de soumission est désormais atteinte, les cinq Fédérations membres suivantes ont fait parvenir au siège de l'IAAF des Lettres d'intention exprimant leur intérêt pour l'accueil de l'édition 2017 des Championnats du Monde de l'IAAF:

Allemagne (Berlin)
Espagne (ville à préciser)
R.-U. de Grande-Bretagne et d'Irlande du Nord (Londres)
Hongrie (Budapest)
Qatar (Doha)


Des dossiers complets détaillant les procédures de candidature et d'évaluation seront envoyés à ces cinq Fédérations au cours des prochaines semaines, et le 1er septembre l'IAAF procédera à l'annonce de la Liste officielle des candidatures retenues. La ville hôte des Championnats du Monde 2017 sera ensuite sélectionnée par le Conseil de l'IAAF à l'occasion de sa Réunion de novembre à Monaco.

Les Championnats du Monde de l'IAAF sont la compétition-phare du Calendrier de l'IAAF. La dernière edition en date, à Berlin en 2009, a totalisé neuf jours de compétition, accueilli 2000 athlètes représentant 200 territoires, déployé 10 500 officiels et volontaires, et vu la distribution de plus de sept millions de dollars en primes.

Berlin 2009 a été suivie par une audience télévisée mondiale cumulée de huit milliards de personnes. En ce qui concerne la nation hôte, l'Allemagne, les Championnats ont attiré une audience cumulée de 70 millions de téléspectateurs pour 46 heures de diffusion. Sur le plan mondial, plus de 201 territoires ont pu suivre le déroulement de la compétition sur leurs écrans de télévision.

Les trois prochaines éditions des Championnats du Monde de l'IAAF se tiendront à Daegu, KOR (2011), Moscou, RUS (2013) et Pékin, CHN (2015).

Les éditions passées des Championnats du Monde de l'IAAF ont été accueillies dans les villes suivantes:
Berlin, GER (2009), Osaka, JPN (2007), Helsinki, FIN (2005), Paris St-Denis, FRA (2003), Edmonton, CAN (2001), Séville, ESP (1999), Athènes, GRE (1997), Göteborg, SWE (1995), Stuttgart, GER (1993), Tokyo, JPN (1991), Rome, ITA (1987), Helsinki, FIN (1983).

And now there are only 2 cities for the bid :

Quote:
IAAF World Athletics Series Competitions - Bid situation as at 2 September



Following the submission of Letters of Intent, the deadline to receive the Bidding Files was 1 September 2011 with regard to bids to organise the 2014 World Half Marathon, Continental Cup, World Indoor Championships and World Junior Championships, and the 2017 World Championships.


...

With that deadline passed, the following bidders are still in the race...


IAAF World Championships 2017

GBR, London

Qatar, Doha
http://daegu2011.iaaf.org/newslistdetail.aspx?id=62403


No more Barcelona for economic reasons :

Quote:
Athlé - ChM
Pas de candidature pour Barcelone


Un temps évoqué, le projet de candidature de Barcelone pour le Mondial d'athlétisme 2017 restera finalement dans les cartons. Selon Marca, la Fédération espagnole aurait pris cette décision en raison d'un contexte économique défavorable. Désormais, il ne reste donc plus officiellement que Londres et Doha pour se disputer le droit d'organiser la compétition en 2017
http://www.lequipe.fr/Athletisme/bre...barcelone.html


LONDON Vs DOHA







Doha Al Khalifa stadium actually 50,000, anad 68,030 for WC 2022 (Maybe a new stadium in the bid)

















After extented 68,030 :













----


London Olympic stadium 80,000

Warning :
Only commentaries about the bidding !!!

On moroccan forum, we follow it since 9 monts. We are very said. IAAF World Championship 2017 / XVI Edition (No (more) Moroccan bid)


0 african countries organzied it. And africans are good in athletic :

Quote:
Rabat accueille la finale du grand prix IAAF en 2010 et 2011. Avant l'intégration à la Golden League et un future bid pour les les championnat du monde d'athlétisme en 2017 après Daegu en 2013, Moscou en 2015.

Les villes candidates pour les championnats de 2015 sont Pékin, Rio de Janeiro et Tokyo. Je crois que l'on peut zappé Rio qui a déjà Jo en 2016 et WC en 2014, sans compter la coupe des conféderations en 2014 ! On peut taper Tokyo et Pekin car il y a déjà Daegu en 2013 !

Aucune ville africaine n'a accueillie l'épreuve.




En plus sur les 12 premiers contributeurs de médailles il y a 3 pays Africain :


http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Champio...thl%C3%A9tisme
South Africa also was interested. Were is Durban bid ?

Quote:
The African continent has been encouraged by the recent FIFA World Cup in South Africa to consider a bid for the IAAF World Championships in 2017, the president of the African Athletics Confederation revealed.


The 2011 World Championships will be held in Daegu, South Korea, while Moscow, Russia, will host the competition in 2013. Olympic host cities London and Beijing have already announced bids for the 2015 edition of the event, which has never been staged in Africa.

“Morocco is most likely to bid for the 2017 World Championships and, if they do, we think they can win,” said Hamad Kalkaba Malboum.

“Besides Morocco, we know that South Africa, Nigeria, Algeria and Egypt can all stage a successful World Championships but because Morocco tried the bid for 2015 we think they stand a good chance in 2017,” added the Cameroonian.

Speaking ahead of the 17th African Athletics Championships, which starts on Wednesday in Nairobi, Kenya, Kalkaba also announced that the first African Cross Country Championships will be in South Africa next year.

If Doha bid for OG 2020, the decision will be taken before IAAF 2017. For 2024, it will be a perfect timing.

If there is a place that got enough for a very long time then it is Qatar. A country with a fifth of Londons population hosting an entire FIFA World Cup on its own is ridiculous enough. Allocating even more high profile championships to Doha would be way too much. The world is too big to return to the same tiny country over and over again.

London for me.

Doha/Qatar would struggle to fill the stadium, which is something that the IAAF would likely be wary of. Remember back to 2001, after the Edmonton (Canada) event, the IAAF made comments that they wanted to go to larger cities, due to some issues that they encountered on that occassion.

Daegu some could argue went against that, but its surrounding population base to tap into is much larger than Doha would achieve.

One thing I found strange, Berlin is listed to have put in an intention to bid, for an event that was only held there 2 years ago. It would only be 8 years between these events. Alittle too soon to try that I would think.

Not sure its fair to say that, but I could see how it would appear that way to some.

Its good to host events, but in such a small country, to host so many can seem to be going too far.

IAAF was very disappointed in Daegu, probably because lack of athletics history of the country, spectators lacked and were not passionnated. Also koreans wondered if to organise such event was necessary.

I think an IAAF World Championship in Nairobi would bring so much passion to the event. I would prefer something else than London or Doha, but I think both cities can do a good event.

London the UK is one of the powers in athletics They would have a nice crowd/atmosphere, But Doha has a nice stadium and is good to spread the event around.

Daegu attendance exceeded the previous two championships it didn't looked like it Berlin looked better.

http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/cult...02600315F.HTML

Daegu Athletics) Daegu attendance exceeds previous two championships: IAAF By Yoo Jee-ho
DAEGU, Sept. 4 (Yonhap) -- The total attendance at the World Championships in Athletics here has already surpassed figures from the previous two championships with the final day of competition still under way, the international athletics governing body said Sunday.

The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) said the 13th biennial competition has attracted 411,111 fans, or nearly 91 percent capacity, to Daegu Stadium through Saturday. The nine-day competition is set to end later Sunday.

The stadium seats 66,422 people but it opened only 34,030 seats for the championships except on the opening night, when 46,379 seats were available.

The IAAF estimated a near-sellout crowd for Sunday, and expected total attendance to reach 445,000.

The number of tickets sold was 464,381 through Saturday, outnumbering actual attendance over the same period. Corporate sponsors of the championships purchased tickets in bulk, some of which were never used.

The organizers' target for tickets sold was 454,000. The IAAF noted that Berlin in 2009 sold about 397,000 and Osaka some 254,000 four years ago.

There had been concerns about staging the championships to a small crowd because of athletics' lack of popularity in South Korea. The biggest single day turnout was 33,772 Saturday, when Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt won his second straight 200-meter title at 19.40 seconds, the fourth fastest in history.



IAAF: Daegu 2011 World Championships wind up a great success







TAMPA/DAEGU: The Deagu 2011 World Championships officially came to a close today after a two hour IAAF Council meeting uniting both the outgoing and incoming members.



IAAF chief Lamine Diack noted during the meeting that he felt that his sport had been treated like royalty in Daegu and that the event had been excellent. He lauded the choice of venue and was thrilled at the attendance and the wonderful atmosphere in the stadium.



Robert Hersch of the USA was named Senior Vice-President as he received the most votes of the four vice-presidents and will serve in the event that the president might be absent.



Looking back at the nine days of competition, at the IAAF Congress, there had been 202 member nations in attendance and 365 delegates participating in the proceedings.



The competitions had 200 member federations, 1849 athletes, 1563 team officials, 3412 team members.



Participating at the press conference were IAAF President Lamine Diack, Mayor of the City of Daegu and Co-President of the LOC Kim Bum-il, the Vice-President and Secretary General of the LOC Dong-Hoo Moon, and IAAF Deputy General Secretary Nick Davies.



The effort to keep the playing field equal in the competitions was successful with the IAAF carrying out blood testing on every athlete in the competitions.



Global TV ratings were up with 65 million viewers in Korea during the first five days of events. This was up from the last World Championships held in Asia at Osaka 2007 which saw only 6.6 million viewers.



Eurosport which broadcast only 100 hours of events gathered 28.6 million which was up from 37.6 million during the entire period of Osaka.



Japan’s broadcaster TBS racked up 131 million viewers for the first five days and peaked at 11.8 million for the 100m final and the hammer throw which was won by Koji Murofushi.


Overall the television attention was inspiring and proved that athletics is going strong.

They did host the Asian games quite successfully. Back to Doha? Not sure since they have been quite lucky to be able to hold so many events so far. I think they are capable of holding the Olympic Games. I just think we should give events to new cities to host. Therefore I don't really prefer London or Doha. I don't prefer Chinese cities as they have held so many events already (Beijing 2008, Asian Games 2010, Universaide 2011), even if they have been successful, it becomes really repetitive. Just something new for a change, some new location.
