Cardiff May Make A Bid For The Commonwealth Games 2026

15th August 2012

Cardiff is yet again showing why it is such a fantastic city to live in, both for long term residents, university students, and students like yourselves who are looking to study English abroad in the UK. Following from the success of hosting the Olympic football matches, the city is now considering making a bid to host the Commonwealth Games in 2026.

Backing the potential bid is the Welsh Olympic gold medallist rower Tom James. He feels that it would build on the success of the London Olympics and help keep people interested in sport and encourage young people to consider competing themselves.

The bid would be entered by the Commonwealth Games Steering Group that includes representatives from the Welsh Government, Cardiff Council, Sport Wales and the Commonwealth Games Council for Wales. They have previously met to discuss bidding for the 2019 games, so they’d have a head start for a bid for the 2026 games! The Commonwealth Games will be held in Glasgow in 2014, and hopefully the country will rally behind that like they did for the London Olympics.
