Probably 2060 at the earliest for London. But Manchester/Glasgow could always bid for the games; America staged two Olympics in 12 years from 84-96.
One unlikely possibility is London being a good backup for a risky host that doesn't meet targets.
When the next games come around I am going to be so rich that I can get my butler to just buy all the tickets for me/my offspring will battling it out for gold in epic sports
I think providing the country does not fall further into debt then sometime in the future before 70
Think I heard somewhere its a 40 year cycle before we can bid again, so probably not before 2052, if we were able to get it in that decade, many of us one here may see 2 olympics! Though it could be anything from 40 to 100 years I guess, I notice Paris hasn't hosted it since 1924 and it may be over 100 years since that until they host it again, so it could be a while, especially with various cities in developing countries starting to be able to put in bids like Nairobi for example, so by 2050, there may be a lot more cities capable of hosting it.
I doubt it would happen again in any of our lives, espicially when you consider that competition to host to games will only increase in the future with more countries growing richer and becoming developed.
A Manchester/Edinburgh/Birmingham/Newcastle bid is definitely still on the cards.
Next recession or world war, we're in there.
There are already talks for a 2028 bid! Its extremley unlikely it'll happen though as although 16 years seems like a long time in olympic terms it's only 4 games away and we're the only city to hold it 3 times already.
I think if we want to see the Olympics in the uk again, any time in the near future, our best bet is Cardiff possibly Glasgow or Edinburgh as well. I don't think any other English city seems that desirable to the IOC and there's still some hostility in N.Ireland to risk throwing an Olympic games in the mix although who knows what things will be like in 20 years.
I would say 30-50 years at least. The IOC probably wants more new countries to host the olympics, and there's always those rich oil countries who can "buy" the olympics.
I think it's very possible, there have been articles saying the IOC is very happy with London's Olympics and would be happy to see them bid again very soon, it also wouldn't cost as much considering we already have the Olympic Park
I'm not from England, but I'm intent that I will visit the next London Olympics, even if I'm in my 90's. Consequently, this entire conversation is very interesting to me.
