NZ to host 2030 Commonwealth Games

New Zealand is most likely to host the 2030 Commonwealth Games according to the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) board Vice President.

A large shake-up of the Games’ structure was announced this morning, as the multi-sport event battles for relevance in a changing sporting landscape and struggles to find a host for 2026 reports One News.

Athletics and swimming are to be made the only compulsory codes, while future hosts can pick and choose other disciplines to make up around 15 sports in total.

There’s concern some traditional sports could lose out at the Birmingham 2022 Games that start in July.

The CGF also said there would be no requirement for an athletes’ village and alternative arrangements could help save costs.

A host for 2026 is likely to be announced before the Birmingham Games.
