Istanbul and Tokyo had a strong competition last year in order to organize the 2020 Olympic Games. They tried to give their bests.At the end, Tokyo won the bid with the majority votes of IOC members.Olympics application package of Turkey was very impressive. But there were some very important weaknesses under some titles of Istanbul‘s application.Especially, this package was not discussed before and after the decision of IOC at the Turkish public.As we look the development of preparations of FIFA World Football Cup 2022 in Qatar, it is sure that there are chronicle problems.This gives us a certain opinion that IOC has more sensible approaches than FIFA dealing with mega events in the terms of sustainability.This study tries to give comparative and accurate information to prepare scientific application packages for future and will try to analyse pre-development and implementation of such mega organizations in the terms of economic, social and environmental sustainability.
