Mehriban Aliev has assured bosses of world Olympic movement that the capital of Azerbaijan is going suit the present feast of sports: “ We want, that Baku became the general house. The past of our country and our city can generate the good future. The Olympic Games - not only investments into sports, a standard of living and public health services, it also ability to carry out action of world level. I can give you a guarantee at presidential, state level that if to us honour to organise Game will drop out, they will be spent at the highest level “.
Baku not the first year is positioned as one of the world centres of sports. Large competitions pass here with an enviable regularity, at high sports and organizational level. Therefore application for the right of carrying out of the Olympic Games - 2020 became quite logical step which can deduce and without that the high sports status of the country on new level.
For Baku it is the second attempt to receive Game, and it must be said, that were prepared for it thoroughly enough. In the application book “ Baku - 2020 “ presented to the International Olympic committee, all plan of preparation for Games, including building of sports objects, the schedule of their input in operation, questions of an infrastructure, security and many other necessary aspects is accurately painted.

In particular, it is provided all Olympic objects to build from zero that in itself it is regarded as the big advantage. As all constructions will correspond to the most strict requirements taking into account tomorrow.
Meanwhile the IOC divides a choice of the capital of the Olympic games into two stages - the so-called period of applicants and candidates. The IOC selects cities from the list of applicants then between them the direct competition for the right to accept Game begins. Certainly, it would be desirable, that Baku has made the way in the second circle of selection, but the number of candidates, as a rule, happens limited.
