Notes:
More than one Indoor Arena will be needed, it is very hard to fit all the needed sports into one arena.

Please, bare in mind that this is by no means the definitive "what you need" - it is far more of a helping hand for anyone that is stuck.
If, for instance, you don't use Stadium X for Sport Y (as suggested here) it will have no effect on your chances of winning the right to host whatsoever, after all it is uniqueness that wins .



The more creative, professional and realistic your bid the greater the chances of your bid succeeding.

The AGF would like to wish all those who bid for the Alliance Summer Games the best in their endeavours.

Any question please email the AGF at the following address agf@aoinmail.eu

Bidding for the IV Alliance Summer Games will close on the 16th of August 2011 (no exceptions)
