___ original post:

This is the first I’ve heard. :-(

New sports and capping of numbers are on the agenda of the Commonwealth Games Federation as it seeks to keep the Commonwealth Games relevant in tune with modern times.

With the programme for Gold Coast 2018 already locked and basketball set to replace gymnastics, the CGF general assembly, to be held next year in Auckland, will determine the new structure besides voting on the host city for the 2022 Games.

Durban (South Africa) and Edmonton (Canada) are in the fray for the 2022 Games, while Wales has hinted at the possibility of putting up a joint bid with Cardiff, Newport and Swansea to gain the right to host the 2026 Games. …

Changes ahead for the Games
