Thursday, 24 December 2009

The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) has issued its 2018 Candidate City Manual, the start of the formal process to determine which city hosts the 21st Commonwealth Games.

The document is sent to all 70 Commonwealth Games Associations (CGAs). CGAs and Candidature Cities have until March 31, 2010, to notify the CGF of their intention to bid.

That starts a formal process of information exchange, with final bids to be lodged by May 11, 2011, sixth months before the CGF General Assembly meets in St Kitts and Nevis to award the rights to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The 2018 Candidate City Manual is available on the CGF website at:
