Malaysia Interested In Hosting 2022 Commonwealth Games

Malaysia has expressed its willingness to replace Durban as the 2022 Commonwealth Games host. The Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) president, Prince Imran who also former President of the Commonwealth Games Federation said that Malaysia was ready to step in.

However, he also said the bid will depend if the OCM gets the government approval to do so. “We (OCM) are keen to host the Games as we had organised the Games in Kuala Lumpur in 1998. We also have all the facilities and stadiums to organise the Games”, he said. Malaysia first hosted the 1998 Commonwealth Games. Recently, National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil was being renovated for preparation of 29th Southeast Asian Games.

Four countries, including Malaysia and Australia, have expressed interest in replacing Durban as host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, the chief executive of the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) said yesterday.

Canada and the United Kingdom also indicated they would be willing to stage the competition after Games chiefs stripped Durban of the event in March.

Australia will host next year’s Games on the Gold Coast and Malaysia welcomed the 1998 edition in Kuala Lumpur, while the English cities of Liverpool, Manchester — the 2002 host venue — and Birmingham have declared an interest in being the host city.
