National Characteristics (Brief History)

       The United States Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, drafted largely by

Thomas Jefferson, on July 4, 1776. That date is now celebrated annually as America's Day of

independence. The United States is the world's oldest surviving federation. It is a constitutional

republic and representative democracy, "in which majority rule is tempered by minority rights

protected by law." The government is regulated by a system of checks and balances defined by

the U.S. Constitution, which serves as the country's supreme legal document. In the American

federalist system, citizens are usually subject to three levels of government, federal, state, and

local; the local government's duties are commonly split between county and municipal

governments. In almost all cases, executive and legislative officials are elected by a plurality

vote of citizens by district. The United States has operated under a two-party system for most

of its history. For elective offices at most levels, state-administered primary elections choose

the major party nominees for subsequent general elections.

       The United States has a capitalist mixed economy, which is fueled by abundant natural

resources, a well-developed infrastructure, and high productivity. According to the

International Monetary Fund, the U.S. GDP of $14.870 trillion constitutes 24% of the gross

world product at market exchange rates. It has the largest national GDP in the world, though it

is about 5% less than the GDP of the European Union in 2008. The country ranks ninth in the

world in nominal GDP per capital. The 2010 U.S. Census reported 308,745,538 residents; the

U.S. Census Bureau's Population Clock projects the country's population now to be

310,914,000.




                                                 6
Candidate City Characteristics (NYC)


       New York is the most populous city in the United States and the center of the New York

metropolitan area, which is one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. New

York City has a significant impact on global commerce, finance, media, culture, art, fashion,

research, education, and entertainment. As host of the United Nations Headquarters, it is also

an important center for international affairs. The city is often referred to as New York City or

the City of New York, to distinguish it from the state of New York, of which it is a part.


       Located on the Atlantic coast of the northeastern United States, New York City consists

of five sections basically or (Boroughs): The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten

Island. With a population of 8.4 million distributed over 305 square miles of land. New York is

the most densely populated major city in the United States. As many as 800 languages are

spoken in New York, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world. The population of

the of New York City is the United States' largest, estimated at 19.1 million people distributed

over 6,720 square miles. The New York metropolitan area is also part of the most populous

combined statistical area in the United States, containing 22.2 million people as estimated by

the 2009 Census estimates.


       Many districts and landmarks in New York City have become well known to outsiders.

The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to America by ship in the late

19th and early 20th centuries. Times Square, dubbed the "The Crossroads of the World", is the

brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theater district, one of the world's busiest pedestrian



                                                 7
intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry. New York City's

financial district, anchored by Wall Street, is in Lower Manhattan.


       The New York area has a distinctive regional speech pattern called the New York dialect,

alternatively known as Brooklynese or New Yorkese. It is generally considered one of the most

recognizable accents within American English. In regards to the cuisine, New York's food culture

includes a variety of world cuisines influenced by the city's immigrant history.


       Eastern European and Italian immigrants have made the city famous for bagels,

cheesecake, and New York-style pizza. Some 4,000

mobile food vendors licensed by the city, many

immigrant-owned, have made Middle Eastern foods

such as falafels and kebabs standbys of modern New

York street food, although hot dogs and pretzels are

still the main street fare. The city is also home to

many of the finest and most diverse haute cuisine restaurants in the United States.


       When it comes to sports, there has been thirty-five Major

League World Series won by New York teams. It is one of only five

metro areas (Chicago, Washington-Baltimore, Los Angeles and the

San Francisco Bay Area being the others) to have two separate

baseball teams. The city's two current MLB teams are the New York Yankees and the New York

Mets, who compete in six games every regular season called the Subway Series.



                                                  8
       In regards to the parks in NYC, Manhattan's skyline with its many skyscrapers is

universally recognized, and the city serves as home to several of the tallest buildings in the

world. As of August 2008, New York City has 5,538 high-rise buildings. The city prominently

excels in art, cuisine, dance, music, opera, theater, independent film, fashion, museums, and

literature. The city is the birthplace of many cultural movements, including the Harlem

Renaissance in literature and visual.

Introduction


The host city of New York recognizes the details and agreements made with the Continental

Cup, before, during, and well after the event have taken place. This contract must be kept as it

is in a written agreement with all parties involved to ensure the policies will not be broken.


       All laws and regulations of NYC will be fully explained to athletes and participants upon

their arrival into the United States as they will abide by the same set of laws as the citizens of

this country follow. Again, special consideration or circumstances may arise and these instances

will be dealt with when issue arises.


Licenses (Legal Aspects cont.)


       The organizing committee of NYC for the Continental Cup, through licensing, is granted

the right to use the Continental Cup logo, in addition to the logos of our participating sponsors.

This implementation is utilized in order to manufacture and distribute officially licensed

products. The majority of this income will be used to support the games themselves and the

host city involved. Any attempt to reproduce or distribute these products will be subject to full

prosecution of the law at the state or national level of the U.S. court system. These laws and

contracts will be available before the games begin including all of the following:


   1. All liabilities and insurance policies and procedures for the athletes will be covered in its
      entirety.
   2. The public facilities and transportation approvals and policies are met.
   3. The host city of New York will have travel agreements to be sure the city has complied
      with standard conditions and procedures.

                              Customs and Immigration Formalities

       The most important action that athletes can exercise is to be sure to have a U.S.

passport valid through 2015. You must have a passport with you when you participate in the

Continental Cup. You will not be able to get a passport at the U.S. competition. Be sure to allow

at least six weeks from the time that you apply for a passport until it is sent to you. You can

apply for a passport through the Post Office. Getting a passport is a long-term investment. It is

good for 10 years and there is every reason to believe that athletes with the talent to qualify for

the Continental Cup will need a passport in the next 10 years.


Customs

       The city of New York agreed that all athletes and fans displaying proper validation, a

passport or equivalent, will be permitted into the U.S. and the state of New York. Legal fees will

be assessed to the counties involved but may be picked up by other monetary donations to be

worked out at a future date. All participants and fans will enter through customs and checked

by U.S. Government officials on duty. Athletes must talk to any one official responsible for all

aspects of entering the country, Health, Immigration, Customs, and Agricultural. All athletes

and fans involved in the games must meet all requirements by a specific date and if the date is

not met, special arrangements must be made to compete.

       Upon entering the US, you must declare certain items from abroad and pay a duty on

the value of those articles if they exceed the allowance established by the US customs service.

Goods and gifts purchased at duty-free shops abroad are not exempt from duty or sales tax.

Recycling and Trash


       With an event as immense as the 2015 Youth Games, it

is important to plan the recycling of materials from the event.

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) of New York University

will partner with Waste Management to lead the responsibilities in helping control waste

throughout the city and the sport venues. Proper recycling bins will be distributed and placed

in all facilities to be used, including in restroom areas.


Waste Management (NE-NJ Hauling-Jersey City)

Office Address

507 Route 440

Jersey City, NJ 07305 USA

       In recent years, the city has focused on reducing its environmental impact. Large

amounts of concentrated pollution in New York have led to a high occurrence of asthma and

other respiratory conditions among the city's residents. The city government is required to

purchase only the most energy-efficient equipment for use in city offices and public housing.

New York has the largest clean air diesel-hybrid and compressed natural gas bus fleet in the

country. By mid 2010 the city had 3,715 hybrid taxis and other clean diesel vehicles,

representing around 28% of New York's taxi fleet in service, the most in any city in North

America. The city's population density, low automobile use and high transit utility make it

among the most energy efficient cities in the United States.




                                                  15
        There will be many portable facilities at each of the venues and public restrooms for the

arenas. The purpose of the portable facilities is to supply a higher level of convenience for all

attendees. Also, the systems will help in preventing longer lines of those waiting for the use of

the facilities.


Considering the location of NYC being on the east coast, the contamination of the water is a

concern. However, as mentioned previously, there will be strong efforts made to promote

recycling and to help maintain the cleanliness of the surrounding bodies of water.

Meteorology

        The area averages 234 days with at least some sunshine annually, and averages 58% of

possible sunshine annually. Winters are cold and damp, and prevailing wind patterns that blow

offshore minimize the moderating effects of the Atlantic Ocean. The average temperature in

January, the area's coldest month, is 32.1 °F. However temperatures in winter could for a few

days be as low as 10 °F (−12 °C) and as high as 50 °F (10 °C). Spring and autumn are

unpredictable, and can range from chilly to warm, although they are usually mild with low

humidity. Summers are typically hot and humid with a July average of 76.5 °F (24.7 °C).

Nighttime conditions are often exacerbated by the urban heat island phenomenon, and

temperatures exceed 90 °F (32 °C) on average of 18 days each summer and can exceed 100 °F

(38 °C) every 4–6 years.

        The city receives 49.7 inches (1,260 mm) of precipitation annually, which is fairly spread

throughout the year. Average winter snowfall for 1971 to 2000 has been 22 inches (56 cm), but

this usually varies considerably from year to year. Hurricanes and tropical storms are rare in the



                                                16
New York area, but are not unheard of and always have the potential to strike the area.

Extreme temperatures have ranged from −15 to 106 °F (-26 to 41 °C), recorded on February 9,

1934 and July 9, 1936, respectively. These climate conditions show examples on why the city of

New York is more than capable of successfully holding an outdoor Soccer tournament as well as

a youth basketball tournament. The climate is respectively adequate for the Continental Cup.

          2. Special Rate for Venues (2)

       New York University was started in 1831 by Albert Gallatain. His idea was to create "in

this immense and fast-growing city a system of rational and practical education fitting for all

and graciously opened to all”. Now in 2011, 180 years later, it is one of the United States

biggest private universities. New York University is one of the 60 members of the Association of

American Universities. There are over 3,000 universities and colleges in the United States. The

university boasts a student body of more than 40,000 students enrolled in 18 schools and

colleges. New York University has schools and colleges in North America(Manhattan) as well as

other sites in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. ” The center of NYU is its Washington

Square campus in the heart of Greenwich Village. One of the city's most creative and energetic

communities, the Village is a historic neighborhood that has attracted generations of writers,

musicians, artists, and intellectuals” (NYU).

       New York University has partnered with the New York City Sport Commission to provide

housing accommodations for competitors, volunteers and interns as well as venues for the

Reebok International Basketball Tournament. The university has agreed to special rates for the

use of their housing units and venues. Additionally, Signage featuring the university will be

strategically placed throughout the Puma International Soccer Showcase vicinity including the

soccer showcase championship stadium. New York University also reserves the right to control

and profit from the concession stands within their venues. The New York City Sports

Frito-Lay (secondary sponsor)

       Contributions
          1. Title Rights
          2. Provide Products for Concession Stands (9)

       Frito-Lay is the most dominate snack food producer in North American. The company

offers no fewer than fifteen brands per year that combine to surpass $100 million in sales. “In

the United States, Frito-Lay is the leader in several snack categories: potato chips (Lay's,

Ruffles), extruded snacks (Cheetos), corn chips (Fritos), tortilla chips (Tostitos, Doritos),

multigrain chips (Sun Chips), and pretzels (Rold Gold). Other major brands include Cracker Jack

candy-coated popcorn, Grandma's cookies, Quaker Chewy granola bars, and Munchies snack

mix” (referenceforbusiness.com).

       This agreement names all the concession stands in the game village and on Randall’s

Island, south fields “Frito-Lay Snack Bar”. There will be six concession stands on Randall’s Island,

four with in close proximity of the south fields and two in Icahn Stadium. There will also be

three concession stands in the game village. Frito-Lay will stock the snack bars with ten of the

fifteen Frito-Lay products throughout the event. The New York City Sports Commission is proud

to have Frito-Lay as one its event sponsors.



Economic Impact on New York

       The economic impact created by the 2015 Continental Cup on New York City will be

substantial. The event is projected to draw 5,000 spectators over the duration of the

tournament. 60% of these spectators are projected to be from outside the immediate event


                                                 22
radius. At maximum registration there will be more

than 4,500 athletes from a projected 19 countries all in

New York for the 2015 Continental Cup. Specific areas

that will experience the biggest impact are hotels,

restaurants, night life and shopping centers.

Comparing similar events of the past estimates the overall economic impact of this event will

reach $5 million (International Youth Festival, 2010).


Profit Beneficiary

       All proceeds will benefit New York City charter schools. Charter schools need our help

and are worthy of getting it. The New York City charter school center is an independent non-

profit organization that is dedicated to increasing access to high quality education despite a

student’s location within the city or financial tribulations. The first charter school was opened in

1999 and since then 124 more charter schools have opened. They currently serve all the

division of New York and have 38,000 students enrolled. Another positive facet is the schools

offer a starting salary of $45,000 for a starting teaching position. Charter schools are supported

by more than 65% of New Yorkers yet receive $3,017 less operating funds per student. After

researching New York City charter schools and unveiling these encouraging facts, financially

supporting these schools was deemed a good choice. (charter schools, 2011)




                                                23
Volunteers

       Volunteers and interns will be the primary source of labor needed to execute the event.

It is estimated that the event will require over 150 volunteers. Volunteers will have

responsibilities falling under one of the

following categories.

      Merchandise/food (55)
      Game play Supervisor (23)
      Ticket taker (15)
      Event Security (40)


Internships

Interns will play a vital role in the execution of the 2015 Continental Cup. There will be seven

fulltime interns with the following position titles.

      Event Security
      Special Events
      Game Play Coordinator
      Ticket Sales
      Logistics Manager
      Public Relations
      Accounting

They will have working knowledge of Microsoft Office. As well as a positive attitude and a

mindset geared in the best interest of the event. Interns will have the unique opportunity to

help successfully execute an international event. The experience will be a very meaningful and

therefore resume building.

     follow. Anyone visiting the page can read about the status of the event and pictures of

     previous events as well as of this year’s facilities. Our goal is to gain a massive amount of

     positive excitement about the tournament through these web pages.

     Flyer Distribution

             Flyers will be distributed to sport related facilities throughout the United States

     and other countries. The flyers will reach people with an interest in sports and hopefully

     acquire more participates that other forms of media had missed.

     Radio
             On a weekly basis local and national radio stations will run advertisements about

     the event gauging more interest and reaching people as there are commuting from one

                                 General Selection Criteria
          A lot of careful consider and deliberation has gone into choosing the venues that will be

used for the 2015 Continental Cup. The common criteria used for choosing venues are as

follow;

            1. The venue must have a positive impact on national and international teams, fans
               and volunteers.

            2. All venues must be within a 15 mile radius of New York University.

            3. The facility must meet all codes and regulations of hosting an international event.

The coordinators of this event are very careful when choosing venues. The venues are one of

the most curial parts of a successful sporting event because all athletics, spectators and

volunteers have direct interaction with them. If the venues are not adequate for the activities

planned for them it will without a doubt have a negative effect on everyone relying on them.

Following these guidelines helps to ensure that the event, in general, is a success.

       In April of 2005, Icahn Stadium opened along Randall’s Island Park’s northeast shoreline

of the Hudson River. This magnificent facility replaced the former Downing Stadium which had

stood since 1936. The $42 million project was funded equally by the public and private

resources. The stadium is named after Carl Icahn, an American banker, corporate raider, and

private equity investor from Queens, New York.

       The stadium was built to coincide with the International Amateur Athletic Federation

(IAAF) stipulations for hosting local, national and international events. Two years subsequent to

its opening, Icahn Stadium had already accommodated well over 200,000 high school, college

and professional athletes and spectators

throughout the track season. With every

passing year Icahn Stadium becomes

more popular, hosting more events and

accommodating more patrons than the

previous year. Major events held at Icahn Stadium include the Reebok Grand Prix that Usain

Bolt documented the world record 100 meter dash time at.

       Icahn Stadium is home to an artificial surface premier soccer field approved by the

Federation of the International Futbol Association (FIFA). There will be seating for 5,000

spectators at the championship soccer game and ceremonies. Also available at this location are

quality locker rooms for athletes to use for pre-game, half time and post game activities.

         All the soccer games except the

championship for the 2015 Continental Cup

will be played at Randall’s Island Park on the

south fields. Randall’s Island Sports

Foundation and the city of New York

embarked on a venture in August of 2007 to

refurbish and rearrange 60 athletic playing fields on Randall’s Island. Upon completion of this

project in late March of 2011, Randall’s Island Park will contain over half of all the athletic fields

in Manhattan. This renovation will immensely increase the existing amount of playing time for

all New Yorkers. The southern sector of Randall’s Island contains 15 soccer fields that are in

above average condition making this location a perfect fit for a major international soccer

event.

facilities. The Palladium was constructed on the site of the renowned New York nightclub

sustaining the same name. It is home to the university's swimming and diving teams and water

polo teams. To be used during Continental Cup competition are three gyms all of which are of

regulation size and have multiple basketball hoops for use during warm up. The gyms will host

University. It is 142,000 square feet and has 5 levels. It opened in September 1981 and is the

heart of the university recreational and athletic needs,

serving over 10,000 people. The sports center contains an

extensive amount of individual and group recreational

activities and fitness endeavors. Additionally, about 3,500

students play club sports and intramurals here. The facility also functions as home for many of

the Violets’ varsity intercollegiate athletic teams.

       For the purposes of the event, competition will take place in the field house and the

main gym. The field house contains 5 full size basketball courts with state of the art flooring.

The field house will be used for all rounds of competition. Approximately, 2,000 spectators can

be seated here. The main gym will be used for the final round of competition. It contains

seating for 4,000 spectators. In past years this facility has hosted the NCAA Basketball National

Championships, NCAA Regional Wrestling Championships, ECAC Regional Basketball

unit. The fire department of New York City provides services during times of fire, public

endangerment and medical emergency, natural disasters, and acts of terrorism. In case of the

unfortunate occurrence of a fire, the New York City Fire Department will provide excellent and

occurrence of these catastrophes, they are minor. The city is not at risk of a volcano,

earthquake, tornado, or landslide. A hurricane is unlikely to affect New York City, but if a

hurricane were to occur the city it would be very minor as a result of the storm travelling over

land for quite some time. Along with being at a relatively low risk for natural disasters, the city

has very capable emergency response units and procedures to deal with the resulting

circumstances.

Terrorism

       With the acts of September 11, 2001 still in the minds of New Yorkers, the threat of

terrorism must be taken seriously. The federal government and the state of New York have

acted in the best interest of Americans by putting plans and policies into place that help to

ensure safety. The New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services will



                                                54
do everything in its power to protect prevent against acts of terrorism. Cornerstone Security

protect the Continental Cup Games from being affected by acts of terrorism.

Crime and Civil Disobedience

       While acts of crime and violence have been associated with the city of New York, the

crime rates have dropped over the last decade. Much of the credit in the reduction of crime has

to go to the NYPD, the New York Police Department. The NYPD will be coordinating with

Cornerstone Security and the New York University Department of Public Safety to maintain

order and manage criminal activity in the areas surrounding the event. In the case of public

protests, if they occur, the security staff and the NYPD will manage the situation in a peaceful

manner.

Traffic and Major Accidents

       New York City is well known for hosting major sporting events. With this, the NYPD and

the emergency response units have gained a mass amount of experience in managing a heavily

populated area and means of transportation. Areas of heavy traffic will be managed by the

positioning of representatives from the NYPD. In the occurrence of a major traffic accident, the

emergency response units and the NYPD have a large number of available and qualified

members to handle these unforeseen events. Also, in regards to major traffic accidents,

members of the NYPD will be able to assist travelers with

available alternate routes.

     Section Q




84
       New York City and the surrounding area have always been known for its cultural

diversity. For Centuries the city has welcomed immigrants from all over the world. Most of

those immigrants decided to remain within the area of New York City. The city has become a

stew of different people with different ideals. It is for this reason that The Puma International

Soccer Showcase and the Reebok International Basketball Tournament would be a large success

within the surrounding communities if marketed correctly. The maps below show the

distribution of people throughout the greater New York City area:




                                                85
       These two maps show the different neighborhoods based on race. Circled in both maps

are the two sites where the events are to be held. A good marketing strategy would advertise

the event in these locations with the highest concentration of ethnic groups. This will invoke a

type of nationalism of their country of origin or ancestry and draw crowds to cheer for the


                                               86
youth honoring there nationalities. The organization would also make postings on local

government and recreation sites. Social Media and getting the word out to different

neighborhoods will play a huge role in getting crowds to the games.


Tourism

        New York City is not just a place of permanent residence. Visitors from across the

country and globe come to see the first ever megacity to see it up close. There are many things

to do around the New York City area other than

taking in the masterful skyline. Broadway is

world renowned as a place of fine arts both on

and off stage. Many stage shows are always

playing. There are shows that are staged for

everyone in the family.

        There are many great destinations in New York City designed for the youth. Astroland

and Coney Island in Brooklyn is one of the most recognizable amusement parks. With rides and

attractions for all ages, it is a popular draw for many tourists

visiting the city.

        The quieter attraction that is great for the youth and

the young at heart is the Bronx Zoo. Foreigners will have a

great chance to experience the different animals from North

America as well as around the world. http://www.bronxzoo.com/plan-your-trip/directions.aspx



                                                 87
       When visiting it is important to go to the major icons of the city. The Statue of Liberty is

open to the public with just a short ferry ride across the New York Bay. Visitors can walk up her

steps and peer out across the bay to the. cityhttp://www.esbny.com/index2.cfm

       A bird’s eye view is required to really take in what New York City is all about. To do that

one must travel to see the Empire State Building. Located right in the middle of Manhattan on

Fifth Avenue visitors can pay to reach the top of the city and touch the sky while getting a great

view of the city. http://www.esbny.com/index2.cfm

Continental Cup Staff
        On behalf of President Sexton and myself, I’d like to thank you for allowing New York University

to be these young athletes new home during the Continental Cup. The University recognizes your need

for quartering and event facilities. The buildings you will have access to are Brittany Hall, Carlyle Court,

Hayden Hall, Founders Hall, Lafayette Hall, Rubin Hall, and University Hall. These halls have a cafeteria

either in the building or nearby. We will staff the kitchen for meals at specified times for the teams and

volunteers and staff. All we ask is that the athletes and personnel follow the rules of the dorm and any

damage that occurs will be billed in the final invoice. The teams will have full access to the Palladium

Athletic facility and Jerome S. Cole Sport facility in order to prep for their tournament. We have

reserved these facilities on the specified dates. If there is anything else that is required of the University
