I bet you all don't even know the games are ongoing ... or is it over? :winking:

Anyhow, Commonwealth Games should include football
This would have given Naija opportunity to win a "major" tournament in 2018

The whole commonwealth is a joke especially with how Britain is treating the Windrush generation of immigrants who have lived most of their life in the UK..

A joke to you ..... maybe not to the athletes and officials. N1.8 Million is given to Gold medal winners. It is a stop to the Olympics, the next stop is African Games in 2019.

We can elevate the African games instead. I agree, the commonwealth is seriously tainted.

You don't get to compete with Jamaica, Canada, England, Australia @ African Games. The Universiade (2 times) is another competition to test athletes before the Olympics but its not all encompassing. In a 4 year cycle, Universiade, Commonwealth Games, African Games, Olympics.

I don't have a problem with the Games itself.

When we look at the history of many modern entities they are as controversial.

I think the games should remain, but it should be re-branded.

Beach soccer was played at the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games in Bahamas. Futsal may get included at the main games.

http://www.bahamas2017cyg.org/sports/beach-soccer/

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footba ... debut.html

Quote:
Five-a-side indoor football, known as futsal, could feature in the Commonwealth Games after the federation's president Prince Tunku Imran backed its inclusion.

The Malaysian, a former squash national champion, said futsal could be a cheaper option for hosts of the multi-sport event held every four years.

'The African countries want football to played in the Games but the logistics and costs involved will be an obstacle,' Tunku said.

'Futsal would be a better option as the number of players and officials per team is fewer and playing indoors also has its benefits. Futsal is also a very popular sport as well.'

Football has never featured at the Commonwealth Games, which will be hosted by the Scottish city of Glasgow next year.

Swimming, athletics, badminton, boxing, hockey, lawn bowls, netball, rugby sevens, squash and weightlifting are the 10 current core sports while each host is entitled to add up to a further seven sports.
