Canadian province Alberta cancels bid for 2030 Commonwealth Games
Posted: Fri, 04 Aug 2023 15:00
Tourism and Sport Minister Joseph Schow said the bill was estimated at C$2.7bn (£1.5bn; $2bn) - a burden "too high for the province to bear".
The organiser of the Games has said it is "sorry to hear that Alberta is no longer developing its bid proposal".
Last month Australia pulled out of hosting the 2026 Games in Victoria due to budget blowouts.
Alberta's withdrawal means there are currently no other firm bids to host the 2030 Games.
So what does this mean for the future hosts of the Commonwealth games? Currently there are still ongoing conversations with other potential host cities about their bid but these have not been confirmed as of yet.
