Default Re: 2020 Summer Olympics

I put it in my post... When you have to build almost every venue, and then you do not continue to use those venues, you end up losing billions, not making a profit. Pretty much what I said in the post. Other places that have the venues already built would only need to make certain changes, not start from scratch...AND those venues in these other places, like Dallas or even Houston, along with several other places in the US and around the world (not really up on other places round the world that have the venue set up like I'm talking ,but I'm sure there are a few) those venues are being used right now, therefore those cities could actually make a profit from the Olympics, something that has not been done in decades, if ever considering some of their choices of cities.

BTW, didn't see any of their last choices as viable.

Wouldn't Istanbul, or many other cities, have to build a lot of new infrastructure?

Ok...one more time, when you have to build the vast majority of those venues that usually means that those venues were not needed before you got the Olympics, and probably won't be needed afterwards. Ex. Nagano, Japan had to build the vast majority of their venues. We don't know how much it cost them exactly because the head of the bidding committee had the documents burned. We do know that they had a net loss.

Madrid "might" have done better had they been chosen, Barcelona made a HUGE PROFIT...hahaha 10 million and they actually were just having to make upgrades to the infrastructure they already had.

Even London, that had quite a few of the venues already built, the only problem was the travel time for the athletes, broke even in the end.

Which is why I said...BTW, I did not see any of the choices as viable. Sorry, I guess you were typing your post when I made the edit. : )
