Should the Olympic Games be permanently hosted by the same city?

  • Why should the Olympics be hosted in the same place?

    I think the Olympics should be hosted in the same place every year because it costs too much money to build a new cite every 2 years for the Olympics when we can just use one cite every 2 years instead of perhaps six every twelve years because those six just cost more money.

  • It would save a lot of money.

    For example, the web article “What if the Olympics Were Held in the Same City?” mentioned this fact: “The 2008 Summer Games in Beijing cost more than $42 billion, and Sochi spent more than $50 billion for the Winter Games in the Russian city six years later.” Another online article: “Should the Olympics have a permanent home — a single location where the Olympics is always held?” added: “There is an estimate that Rio Olympics will cost Brazil about 20 billion dollars. And the income generated would be about 4.5 billion dollars.” Clearly, you can notice a pattern here. We would save a lot of money. We wouldn’t just spend tens of billions of dollars on a new stadium just to have it been used for 1 month, wouldn’t we?

  • Tradition trumps travel

    For less than 120 years the Olympics have changed city. For several hundred years the Ancient Olympics were held in Olympia, Greece. The benefits to each host city are not clear-cut, as it often takes decades to recoup the cost of the Games. As an alternative to hosting the Games in a different country each time, a country could bid to be the host of the Games in the 'designated location'.

  • Nope neverever lol

    Bruh don't even try I have an entire paper written on this. The cost of trying to simply UPKEEP an Olympic stadium is too much. Let alone the price drops over the years when people get bored of going to the same stadium for the Olympics. I'm not gonna even bother with this comment because I have an essay that can shut down anyone in favor of this

  • The Olympics are meant to be in different places

    This way we could explore new countries and they can show us what they are like. For example a while back no body knew what Australia was truly like and then when the summer games were held there they showed us a bit of their culture. This is why the Olympics should not be held in the same place.

  • Olympics Should Continue to Move

    No, the Olympic Games should not be permanently hosted by the same city as it is a global event, and as such, it should be represented globally. No one nation has a monopoly on the Olympic Games, and it should stay this way. To do otherwise would be to rob the Games of their global nature.

  • The Olympics should change host cities.

    The entire idea of the Olympic games is that various countries compete. It should be hosted in various places to reflect the diversity and different cultures that are competing. It would show respect for the various nations, for the diversity of the Olympics, and would be more fair if it were held it different cities.
