The state govern­ment of South Aus­tralia an­nounced it is con­sid­er­ing mount­ing a bid for Ade­laide to host the 2030 Com­mon­wealth Games. A fea­si­bil­ity com­mit­tee has been es­tab­lished to con­sider propos­ing an Ade­laide bid to the Aus­tralian Com­mon­wealth Games Com­mit­tee. South Aus­tralia is the only main­land Aus­tralian state yet to host a Com­mon­wealth Games. Ade­laide was beaten by Kuala Lumpur to stage the 1998 games, and was an early con­tender to be Aus­tralia’s can­di­date city for 2018, which even­tu­ally went to Gold Coast, Queens­land. Gold Coast beat off com­pe­ti­tion from Ham­ban­tota, Sri Lanka to be awarded the 2018 Com­mon­wealth Games. Glas­gow, Scotland will play host next year.
