Euro 2020 - Czech Rep/Slovakia bid ?

CZECHS PLAN EURO 2020 BID WITH SLOVAKS
CMFS (Czech football association) Chairman Pavel Mokry has told the Mlada fronta Dnes newspaper that the Czech Republic and Slovakia are planning a joint bid to stage the Euro 2020 finals.

According to Mokry, the first meeting between representatives of the two countries will take place in Prague on November 16th.

“It’s our duty to try for this, for future generations,” he told the paper. “We asked ourselves whether we wanted to stage the Under-20 World Cup, and why settle only for that?

“It would be wrong not to have the vision of [staging] the European championship.”

Where is the money going to come from to build the stadia? I guess from the same place Prague will get the money to stage the Olympics, where ever that is.

In Czech: Slavia stadium, Sparta rebuilt stadium, Teplice stadium and Ostrava or Brno renovated stadiums maybe?
In Slovakia I have no idea about the stadia situation.

As for money..... surely I'm not the one who knows that.

I like the idea of Euro 2020 much better than Olympics. Olympics will probably cost a lot more and boring anyways. As for Euros you need 3 good stadiums as Austria-Switzerland showed. So Prague, Brno, Ostrava and Teplice on Czech side and Bratislava, Kosice on Slovakian maybe?

you can exclude Slavia and Sparta stadiums from the list due to low capacity (21 resp 20 thousand) they are simle too small for such a venue. As far as I know you are going to build up new National Stadium in Prague with Capacity up to 50 thousand.
Brno, Ostrava and Teplice are obvious option + add new stadium I suppose Plzen.

In Slovakia there are 3 possible stadims to built, Bratislava, Trnava and Kosice. Bratislava´s National Stadium should be ready within 2012, Trnava and Kosice would need new ones.


Stadiums distribution would be following:
3x Bohemia: Praha, Teplice, ??? (Plzen?)
2x Moravia (Brno, Ostrava)
3x Slovakia: Bratislava, Trnava, Kosice


Portuguese invested 650 mio.Eur into 7 new stadiums and reconstruction of 3 big ones (Dragao, Da Luz and Alvalade), another 150 mio Eur went into infrastructure. 800 mio Eur of investment brought jobs for 4000 people, nearly 500 thousand visitors spent a lot of money for accomodation, food, beverages and tickets.

Benefit was about 800 mio.Eur. Such an event is profitable.

And what will we do with all these large stadia after the event? It would be horrible watching league football in one of these cavernous venues, similar to a Slavia match at Strahov, but far worse.
If it comes, I would be very happy for me as a football fan, but as a Czech citizen, I don´t know if it is the best thing for the country. Still, much better than the Olympics!

Large stadiums aren't a requirement, just look at the stadiums of Switzerland wich are used for the Euro.

Well, not large, but even 20 000 stadium is too huge, and useless here :depress:

CZECHS WANT U-21 EURO OR U-20 WORLD CUP
The CMFS (Czech football association) wants to host either the 2011 FIFA Under-20 World Cup or the same year’s UEFA European Under-21 championship.

The plan, announced by CMFS Chairman Pavel Mokry following a meeting of the association’s executive committee yesterday, is designed to complement a joint Czech-Slovak bid to stage Euro 2020.

Earlier in the day, Mokry met with representatives of the SFZ (Slovak football association) to discuss the Euro bid and various other projects, including a Czech-Slovak “Supercup” involving the winners of each country’s domestic cup competition.

But do you think, that such boost of attendances can happen also in Czech and Slovak republic?

Right now I simply can't see where would these people came from, although I'd be very happy to be wrong.

Weather conditions are worse in our latitudes than in Portugal therefore advantage of new stadium here is even more enjoyable than in southern Europe. Latest example: Sparta-Bohemians game, horrible weather and only 8500 fans (despite of 10000 sold tickets). If the game were played in August/September it could be sold out.

Did anyone else noticed decline of Attendance numbers in October/November in comparison with summer months ?

Yup. And also on myself. Since it's cold, I tend much less to attend the stadium. At least cold was reason why I missed last Teplice's match :frustrat:

same here, during winter time I don´t even care about football. We aren´t England with it´s Gulf´s stream and mild climate, our weather use to be absolutely hoorible this part of the Year.

New family-friendly stadiums with heated pitch, comfortable seats and fast food/drink could draw some lazy fans into stands. Plus curious fellas, minus idiots who used to cause some troubles and we all can enjoy beautiful Saturday afternoon with our kids on football. No need to scatter my ashes around the pitch to bring at least once a year my family to stands on Hallowmas. Family-friendly stadiums with nice cultivated people inside could do the job

Howabout me I prefer 25 thousand clapping fans than 2500 yelling ultras/hools with their flags/pyrotechnics/choreo/italoshow.

CZECHS TO BID FOR 2011 U-20 WORLD CUP
The leadership of the Czech football association (CMFS) have announced plans to bid to stage the 2011 Under-20 World Cup.

Most likely, the Czech Republic would partner with one of its neighbours — most likely Slovakia or Austria — to co-host the tournament.
