South African coastal city Durban will no longer host the 2022 Commonwealth Games in five year’s time, as the city did not meet financial demands levied by the Commonwealth Games Federation. Durban was officially chosen as the host for the 2022 Commonwealth Games at the Federation’s general assembly in New Zealand last year in April. According to the South African government the decision was set to benefit the country’s economy with around $1.49 billion expected to be injected into the country.
