South Africa: Durban will not host the Commonwealth Games in 2022!

Durban in South Africa has lost the rights to host the Commonwealth Games in 2022. According to a statement by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF), a "detailed review has concluded that there is a significant departure from the undertakings provided in Durban's bid and as a result a number of key obligations and commitments in areas such as governance, venues, funding and risk management/assurance have not been met under the revised proposition."
Reuters reports that the English cities of Birmingham and Liverpool have expressed interest to replace
Durban as the host city of the Commonwealth Games 2022.
