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 .

Along with the Candidate city bid, Cities will need to provide further information on their cities, countries and all places that events will be taking part at as well as tourist locations. This NEEDS to be done via the AOIN WIKI. Your whole bid needs to be on the forums and on the Wiki. Once bidding has closed no further information can be added to the bids.

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 jo.michael.delaney@gmail.com

Bidding for the V Alliance Summer Games will close on the 31st of August 2012 (no exceptions)
