  1. Local host hopefuls will consider 2027 for Commonwealth Games https://www.thespec.com/news/hamilton-region/2020/10/07/local-host-hopefuls-will-consider-2027-for-commonwealth-games.html The volunteer committee aiming to host the Commonwealth Games in Hamilton will shift its focus to 2027 if it can land government support. But a move from 2026 to the off-cycle year is up to the international federation that oversees the event, says Louis Frapporti, chair of the local bid team. “We’re in the middle of this. We don’t get to decide when the Games occur,” Frapporti said Wednesday
  2. Well it looks like Hamilton will be out of the bid. The province won't support the bid. They are instead focusing on the 2026 World Cup. So I suppose the bid will go back for the 2030 bid. https://www.thespec.com/news/hamilton-region/2020/10/05/donna-skelly-says-province-wont-back-hamilton-bid-for-2026-commonwealth-games.html
  3. Unidentified donor ready to donate millions for Hamilton to land 2026 Commonwealth Games Steve Milton https://www.thespec.com/sports/hamilton-region/opinion/2020/07/03/unidentified-donor-ready-to-donate-millions-for-hamilton-to-land-2026-commonwealth-games.html Someone out there believes, really believes, in the 2026 Commonwealth Games for Hamilton and is putting serious money where their mouth is ... or at least soon will be. The Spectator has learned that an as-yet-unidentified donor will provide a multimillion dollar endowment to seed a private-sector funding war chest t
  4. Seems like Hamilton is now going for the 2026 Games, since we've already been awarded it. This will be used to help the economy post-COVID19. I think Hamilton council might sign off or deny the Games sometime in September. Right now all the focus is on COVID19. The committee is committed to keeping the games no more than $1 billion and they'll shrink the number of sporting events, since we only have six years to prepare. I think this is a good idea, since these games have gone way overboard with the cost of hosting.
  5. Volunteer group seeks viable plan to put 2026 Commonwealth Games in Hamilton https://www.thespec.com/sports/hamilton-region/2020/04/21/volunteer-group-seeks-viable-plan-to-put-2026-commonwealth-games-in-hamilton.html The volunteer group driving Hamilton’s bid has decided to move ahead in a combined search for a way to accelerate its bid for the 2030 Commonwealth Games by four years without, for now, formal city, provincial or federal approval and input. Because the three levels of government are immersed in battling COVID-19, Hamilton 100 is working feverishly with the Games’ na
  6. Maybe they ought to cancel the 2026 Games, with the pandemic and the short timeline I doubt anyone would want to volunteer.
  7. Hamilton could host the 2026 Commonwealth Games — but does the city want them? https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/hamilton-could-host-the-2026-commonwealth-games-but-does-the-city-want-them-1.5524513 .... The mayor added that at this time, he prefers 2030 and is hearing the same from councillors because it offers them a longer timeline. The city isn't planning to make a decision until June or later, though their understanding is that the Commonwealth's international body wants to know by end of May. The bid group has until the end of April to express interest in pursu
  8. Well Calgary is out, their bid was weak. However, Hamilton has basically been awarded the 2026 Games. But Hamilton wants 2030, tough decision to make. Should Hamilton apply for the Commonwealth Games in 2026? Or gamble on 2030? https://www.thespec.com/sports/hamilton-region/2020/04/02/hamilton-which-has-bid-for-2030-commonwealth-games-asked-to-consider-2026-games.html Commonwealth Sport Canada — which oversees all aspects of the Commonwealth Games in this country — says the 2026 Games are Hamilton’s if the city and relevant stakeholders want them. But if Hamilton do
  9. Now Hamilton has been offered the 2026 Games. Ugh, tough decision to make, take 2026 or bid for 2030? Should Hamilton apply for the Commonwealth Games in 2026? Or gamble on 2030? https://www.thespec.com/sports/hamilton-region/2020/04/02/hamilton-which-has-bid-for-2030-commonwealth-games-asked-to-consider-2026-games.html Commonwealth Sport Canada — which oversees all aspects of the Commonwealth Games in this country — says the 2026 Games are Hamilton’s if the city and relevant stakeholders want them.

  10. Hamilton takes another step toward bidding to host the Commonwealth Games The city will endorse the second phase of Hamilton 100's bid, despite concerns about what it would cost https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/commonwealth-games-1.5468336 Hamilton city councillors will take the next step in encouraging a bid to host the 100th anniversary Commonwealth Games. City council's general issues committee voted 10-3 Wednesday to give an endorsement letter to Hamilton 100, a local group of volunteers and business people who want the city to host the games in 2030. There are

  12. Hamilton City Council is debating about Hamilton 100's bid for the 2030 Commonwealth Games. It appears council will give unanimous support to proceed to the next step of the bidding process. Hamilton 100 envision $1.425 billion will be the cost of the Games. $600M from Feds, $350M from the province, $250M from the City (which will use Hamilton's Future Fund, the money is already there) and $225M from money generated by the games revenue.
