Cape Town - The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) has corrected the misconception as reported in the Sunday Times newspaper regarding South Africa’s 2022 Commonwealth Games bid.

SASCOC confirmed they followed the right procedure and engaged various stakeholders which include: City of Durban, Durban Tourism, KZN Tourism, Department of Sport KZN and Premier’s office in the exploratory work.

As per process, SASCOC, which represents Commonwealth Games Association South Africa has given an indication to the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) of the city of Durban’s intention to bid for Commonwealth Games in 2022 while in consultation with Honorable Minister of Sports and Recreation South Africa, Fikile Mbalula, whilst on the other hand SASCOC is engaging with the CGF.

Mbalula is following government due process in relation to securing national cabinet approval to endorse the bid process.

The issue of an Olympic bid will unfold at a point and time when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) informs the Olympic Committees of the world of the bidding process and the date for opening such a bidding process.
