[BREAKING] Durban loses right to host 2022 Commonwealth Games

Durban 2022

Durban will not host the 2022 commonwealth games due to financial constraints, South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee president Gideon Sam told Reuters on Monday.

The decision to recall the games follows from speculations that the event organisers had missed several submission deadlines with the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF).

Durban won the hosting rights in 2015 after the Canadian city of Edmonton withdrew its bid.

Liverpool is already planning a bid for the 2026 Games.

"Here in Birmingham we are already in the advanced stages of producing a detailed feasibility study on what would be needed for a truly memorable games in the city", said Ian Ward, the deputy leader of Birmingham City Council in a statement.

The 2018 Commonwealth Games are set to be held in Gold Coast, Australia. Then the country failed to establish a local organising committee‚ and did not sign a host city contract. One source said Treasury was still willing to guarantee the R4-billion it initially signed off on‚ but would not meet the CGF's additional requirement for double this amount.

This year more bleaching is being observed in this central part of the Reef, which last year escaped widespread severe bleaching. For Baum and other scientists, it really is a race against a competitor that shows no signs of slowing down.

Melbourne and other Australian cities are also believed to have expressed an interest. "The CGF is fully confident and committed to delivering a successful Commonwealth Games for athletes and fans in 2022".

Sports minister Fikile Mbalula had earlier said at a media briefing, "I don't want to raise your expectations and say everything looks good, it doesn't because we don't agree on the fundamentals and that is the operational budget".
