But France had the worldcup in Football in 1998 whereas England had their last big event in 1966! I think Leipzig had no chance against the big cities. And maybe it also played a role that Germany hosts the WC 2006 only 6 years before.marmotte said:i really hope we will host the olympics this time
last time we had the summer olympics was in 1924
i bet the toughest opponent will be london.
ah yes, forgot euro 96 (shame on me! ) NY would fit into that row, every few years its olympic games in the US. BTW: were there ever olympic games in Southamerica? The people there would deserve it.marmotte said:well england had euro '96
but anyway you can't compare WC with the olympics.
i don't think new york will have it: LA '84, atlanta '96, salt lake city '02.
i've heard madrid will be among the favorites as well despites barcelone '92.
