Durban Commonwealth Games On Track

Durban is in pole position to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games after Canadian city Edmonton pulled out.  In a statement, SASCOC CEO Tubby Reddy said, “We have noted Edmonton’s decision to withdraw from the bid process to host the Commonwealth Games in 2022. As the Bid Committee for the City of Durban, we are required to follow due process and lodge our bid with the Commonwealth Games Federation.”  The deadline for the lodgement process is 2 March 2015.

No African city has ever hosted the Commonwealth Games.
