Crisis as the host nation for the 2022 Commonwealth Games loses rights to hold games


It has been announced that the 2022 Commonwealth Games will no longer take place in South Africa due to severe financial constraints.

The host city, which was supposed to be Durban, did not meet the criteria set out by the Commonwealth Games Federation meaning they can no longer hold the games.

Durban, which is the largest city in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal, were awarded the Games in 2015 after successfully making a bid.
