BELFAST has been given more time to se­cure fund­ing to stage the Com­mon­wealth Youth

Games in 2021 as the po­lit­i­cal dead­lock in North­ern Ire­land con­tin­ues to threaten their host­ing of the event.

The North­ern Ire­land cap­i­tal was awarded the event two years ago but the fund­ing has not been re­leased by North­ern Ire­land’s gov­ern­ment be­cause of the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal stale­mate.

The last event was held on the Ba­hamas last year.
