Location of Belo Quinto within the state of Guetaso

Belo Quinto is a city with roughly 400.000 inhabitants, in the state of Guetaso. The city is known since the times of the Empire of Mauretania as a center for excellence in sports. It is home for Lega 1 team SE Flamboyants and second division Clube Atlético Universidade Guetasana. Belo Quinto also houses sevaral minor league, semi-pro and amateur football, basketball and rugby teams.

The city itself is located not far from the Big Three Bay, in the Melanian Sea, providing easy transport links to the other countries in Northern Melania, Fiarria and Delgamia. Belo Quinto is also located near the border with the state of Extremo and the Ordlandic enclave of Costa da Prata. The city is also served by the Aeroporto Estadual Policarpo Quaresma, currently being upgraded to world-class capabilities.


The Portocapitalian government proposed to the International Vexgames Comitee that the games take place in late November or early December 309. This was chosen to coincide with best weather and with school holidays, with the theory being that the demands on the facilities in Belo Quinto would be lower when schools and universities were closed. It would also allow younger people the opportunity to attend the events.


This is a preliminary list of events expected for the games. Other sports may be added later according to IVC recommendations.

Diagram of the Albalonga Complex

Most events will take place in already existant venues. The main arena for the games will be SE Flamboyants' own Estádio Albalonga. The whole Albalonga Complex will house football and athletics on its main stadium, which is capable of holding more than sixty thousand spectators. Its minor field, located just outside the main stadium, will house rugby matches and also some athletics events. The three gimnasiums on the complex, each housing about six thousand people, will be home to basketball, volleyball, swimming and handball. Other buildings in the compound will house training grounds, gyms, shops and a media center.

The remaining events are going to be disputed on other venues arround the city. Some football and rugby matches will be played on the Universidade Guetasana grounds. A baseball/softball field is currently under construction not far from the university. An open field located on the road to Costa da Prata is being prepared to receive the camel racing disputes. The Belo Quinto Jockey Club will house the equestrian and tennis events. The shooting events will be disputed on the headquarters of the Portocapitalian National People's Army 2nd Division, whose gymnasium will also house the boxing and wrestling matches.

Other city improvementsEdit

All venues will be connected by a special shuttle bus service running every five minutes. Special traffic measures will be in place for the duration of the games.

A new neighborhood is being built to house the athletes - the Parque Mundial. It is being built with prefab homes, to ensure quick and high-quality housing. The overall hotel capacity in the city is also being improved.

Media RightsEdit

All video material for the games will be provided by Televídeo Nazionaļ Portocapitaliana, which will then grant audio and video feeds and broadcasting rights to other television broadcasters. TV stations and media agencies may also station their own teams on an International Media Center building, currently under construction on the Albalonga Complex.


Leo llama

Leo Llama, bid mascot.

On the 17th of May 309, the organizing comitee presented Leo Llama as the mascot for the Belo Quinto Bid. According to Andrei Almeida, head of the Ministry of Education's Department of Sports, "The llama is a common animal in western Porto Capital. They were used as pack animals by both the Extreman and Mezapatani civilizations. They are hard-working and friendly, which symbolizes the Portocapitalian people and the Vexgames spirit as a whole".

Rights for making Leo Llama plushes worldwide are already under negotiation.
