    I am happy for Bratislava, but I was hoping for Finland to have Worlds. North America has just had them and they are going to be in Asia for two years in a row.

    I agree. Euros is always fun to go to, but I would like the opportunity to see skaters from all over the World sometimes! I understand that the UK is considering bidding for 2017 Worlds as part of its Gold Event Series program, so maybe it will come back to Europe then.

    It will definitely be in Europe in 2017 since the last time will have been Nice 2012! Finland is also bidding for 2017 (again) and probably some others too.

    It's great for Boston, but I hope 2017 will be in Europe again! It would be great to visit Finland

    Hopefully! I know that was definitely the idea during and immediately following the very successful Euros in Sheffield - and that 2017 would be the first time we could put ourselves forward to host Worlds.

    Direct flights to both Boston and Bratislava (or Vienna even) from here so that's a good start!
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Worlds Rotation

    In the other 2016 Worlds thread, there was some discussion about which region was likely to get the event next in terms of rotation. To quote myself from that thread:

    Quote Originally Posted by BittyBug View Post

    2002 - Nagano - JPN
    2003 - Washington, DC - USA
    2004 - Dortmund - GDR
    2005 - Moscow - RUS
    2006 - Calgary - CAN
    2007 - Tokyo - JPN
    2008 - Goteborg - SWE
    2009 - Los Angeles - USA
    2010 - Torino - ITA
    2011 - Moscow - RUS (was supposed to be JPN)
    2012 - Nice - FRA
    2013 - (Fake) London - CAN
    2014 - Saitama - JPN
    2015 - Shanghai - CHN

    So in that 14 year cycle, it's been held 6 times in Europe, 4 times in Asia and 4 times in North America. It should have been 5 / 5 / 4 except for the earthquake, but either way, it seems like the U.S. should be most likely to be next in line.
    So it does seem like the ISU is evenly spreading the event around.
    "I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence

    maybe 2017 Worlds at the O2 Arena or even ExCel? or how about Manchester Arena (or will it be too big?)? either the UK or they'll probably give it to Finland this time.

    2000 Nice was planned to be held in Australia though. And 12 NA hosting is quite a lot for only two countries.

    Yeah well North America only has two countries, Asia has 32 countries (dunno how many being part of the ISU but I doubt they're more than 10) and Europe has 47 countries.
