Victoria Backs Out Of 2022 Commonwealth Bid

Published on 25/08/17

It has recently been announced that Victoria, Canada, has dropped out of the bidding process to host the 2022 commonwealth games due to a lack of support from the provincial government.

The disappointing news comes after the city were readying a bid for C$955m (€647m), which would see events take part throughout the wider British Columbia province.

The committee whom were responsible for the bid were hoping to gather a further C$800m collectively from both the federal government and the government for British Columbia.

With Canada having been involved in the North American bid to host the 2026 Fifa WC, in addition to the possibility of Calgary bidding for the winter Olympic Games in the very same year, the government were refusing to endorse the event, and have chosen not to provide the required funding needed.

Canadian Broadcaster, CBC, reported in a statement by Finance Minister, Carole James, had announced: “While we appreciate the energy and passion of the bid committee, we cannot make a commitment to support the bid through direct funding, nor can we provide a financial shortfall guarantee.”

With this issue, the chairman of the bidding committee, David Black, admitted that receiving a bid from the government was always going to be difficult due to the other hopes of bidding for both the World Cup and Winter Games respectively.

After the government had refused to provide financial backing, David stated: “We’ll just have to back away. We can’t do it without the province.”

He added: “It’s disappointing. We had a great opportunity here. This won’t come again.”

Other cities, in England, Australia and Malaysia are still in the bidding process, and will hope to win to bring the Commonwealth games to their shores.
