It has just been announced in my game that England will host 2020 Olympics.

Surely this is highly unrealistic! They would never host it so soon after London 2012.

Has this happened in anyone else's game?

Probably just random. Doesn't really take anything away from the actual game mechanics which is more important in my opinon though, so I wouldn't worry too much.

Plus England cannot host the Olympics as they compete as the United Kingdom.

UK's population is way more than that. For England alone, 50 million sounds about right.

This news story is sometime in the future, there would certainly be more than 50 million people by then. :)

Also I would question the notion of a 2020 Olympics as its pretty clear it wont happen in England as only cities can bid and not countries plus its too early since 2012.

The UK population is about 60m, England alone being 50m seems about right to me.

Yes.

It is indeed weird.

Potential bids.
