Olympics in India? There is also talk of 2036 about athletics in front of 132,000 spectators – Other sports – Sports

The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) is negotiating with representatives of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on the possibility of organizing the 2036 Olympic Games in India.

Revealed by IOA President Narinder Batra, he added that the ideal stand for the opening ceremony would be Narendra Modi Stadium with a capacity of 132,000 seats in Ahmedabad in the west of the country. After renovation, it is the largest cricket arena in the world. The information was provided by moneycontrol.com with reference to the PTI agency.

“If anyone asks me about the opening ceremony at the moment, I will not hesitate to say the name of this stadium,” Batra said, continuing: “We do not currently have another stadium in India that is more suitable for the opening of the Olympics. I can’t predict what it will be like in 2036, but my opinion is that Ahmedabad Stadium is currently ideal. “

He also reminded that the same venue would host athletics competitions. “And this is the biggest event under five circles,” the IOA chief added. In an interview with Indian journalists, he also said that three or four Indian cities can host the Olympics.

“The chances of us getting the right to host the Olympics are high,” Batra thinks. “Definitions could fall within two or three years. And we are currently negotiating with the IOC, “he added. According to the head of the IOA, six to seven countries are applying for the 2036 Olympics.

The question is what will be the position of India after the December elections in the ranks of the IOA, when Batr’s successor will take the lead. “We are well on our way to becoming the third strongest economy in the world. Under certain circumstances, we could be second in 2036, “he said.
