Libya Considering Bid to Stage 2017 Mediterranean Games
"THE Libyan Olympic is seriously considering bidding to host the 18th edition of the Mediterranean Games in 2017, the multi-sport games held every four years for athletes from countries bordering the Mediterranean basin where Africa, Asia and Europe meet.
Confirming that the Libyan Olympic Committee is still considering making the bid, LOC general secretary Mr Marwan Maghur, told The Tripoli Post: “With all the development taking place in Libya, we believe it should be all put together to show this to the world through an international sporting event.”
The idea came up during the official visit to Tripoli in the past few days of Hon. Mario Pescante in his role as high commissioner to the 16th edition of the Mediterranean Games in Pescara inviting member countries to the Games to be held in the Italian city from June 26 to July 5.
During his short visit Hon. Mario Pescante, who is also IOC Executive Board member and Chairman of the IOC International Relations Commission, accompanied by the Libyan Olympic Committee chairman Eng. Mohammed Al-Qathafi, made a tour of the sports facilities and witnessed the new infrastructure in Tripoli city. Hon Psscante is also President of the Parliamentary Committee of the EU.
Other LOC members, including the secretary, Marwan Kamel Maghur, and Mr Bashir Attarabulsi, a former LOC president who spent a great number of years representing Africa on the International Olympic Committee also accompanied the tour
The Italian IOC official was so impressed with the facilities and the progress made, that he tried to convince the LOC to bid for the 2017 games. He was confident in his request at pushing Tripoli to make its bid.
He sincerely hoped that after the 17th edition of the Games to be held in Volos City, Greece, the event would be next to organise it eight years from now.
Mr Pescante said he has seen great improvements in Libya, and that the country has made large strides forward in the past 10 years.
The June 11 football stadium and the Sports City were foremost of the venues visited by the Italian delegation.
In the meantime, Pescante, also an Italian parliament member, talked about the Games in Pescara. He said preparations are very well advanced.
He went on to say that he was glad that Libya accepted Pescara’s invitation to participate in the 25-event Games that would help to strengthen the already strong relations that exist between Libya and Italy.
Talks between the two sides also touched on several issues related to the Olympic movement.
At present 23 countries participate in the games. They are:
AFRICA: Libya, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia.
ASIA: Lebanon, Syria and Cyprus.
EUROPE: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia, Slovenia, Spa-in and Turkey.
The Mediterranean Games present an op-opportunity for peaceful athletic competition between youth from different continents, cultures and religions - all bound together via a common Olympic Ideal that has sprung from the ancient country of Greece, the cradle of contemporary western civilisation.
Through these games, a chance is thus given for young people to get to know each other, appreciate each other, and reaffirm or strengthen their ties in a climate of genial rivalry.
The Mediterranean Games are held under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee and the Hellenic Olympic Committee (HOC).
The first Mediterranean Games were first held in Alexandria, Egypt. Ever since, they have taken place every four years without any interruption."

Idem for Andorra ... why they are in?

And Israel? don't touch the med sea?

A little bit strange!

I think that also the countries on the Black Sea could become part of The Med Games!

as far as i know there's something pending about romania and portugal.

they could join because they are part of the "mediterranean culture". that's why also s.marino and andorra are in.

serbia is already in because of being divided from montenegro.

Games should be awarded to "smaller" countries. Whenever it was in some big country (like Italy last time) it was second rate tournament which was organized pretty bad. On other hand when it is in some "smaller" countries (Tunisia) its main event and sports infrastructure and entire event are on far higher level.

2013 / XVIIth Mediterranean Games will be be held in Mersin.
Looks like they plan to built a new 30,000 stadium.
