Commonwealth Games: 2026 event in doubt after Victoria cancels


The 2026 Commonwealth Games are in doubt after the Australian state of Victoria cancelled its plans to host due to budget blowouts.[BBC]

The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) struggled to find a host before Victoria volunteered in April 2022.

But the premier said the projected cost had now tripled and become "well and truly too much" for the state to bear.

CGF called the decision "hugely disappointing" and said it is "committed to finding a solution".
