And what about the research I did for the 93 Games? Do you think it's incorrect?

You're welcome

EDIT: I see that you edited your post Where did you find the 18.555 number? I only found the recent capacity, which is 12.000.

Volos & Larissa Mediterranean Games 2013



About the possible expansion of the stadion in Volos, i haven't read anything official, only some talks here and there.

Panthessalikon stadion - Volos









www.stadia.gr

-----------------------------------------

On the other hand, the new stadion which will be build in Larissa (construction starts this Autumn) will expand to 30k for the 2013 games.

Larissa's new stadion

Many don't know but Mediterranean Games are important organization for Mediterranean countries like Commonwealth Games are important for British World.

It prepares the new athletes for the Olympics. Many Olympic champions make their debut at the Mediteranean games. Many countries got some new stadia with the help of this organization. This is the only oppostunity for some countries and cities to host an event.

sometimes Mediterranean Games prepares a country for a future Olympic Organizations as we saw in Athens and Barcelona.

Wasn't the stadium in Algiers built in 1976, a year after the Mediterranean Games were held in Algiers?

Hundreds of athletes use them every day.
Some of them are/were Blanka Vlasic, Goran Ivanisevic, Mario Ancic, tripple European Champion (in a row) in basketball Split (Jugoplastika or POP 84), waterpolo clubs also as european champions, Hajduk Split (Slaven Bilic's native club), handball clubs (Ivano Balic, Metlicic) ....

Do you think "games" lost its former importance? How will Pescara games be?
