Cape Town Out of the Running for 2020 Summer Games

South Africa is still very much in the running for the 2020 Summer Games. But if they are the host country, Cape Town won’t be the city it is hosted in. Citing the cost that it would take to bring the event to Cape Town, the city spokesman announced the decision to not host.

This leaves Durban as the lone city in South Africa vying for the 2020 bid. South Africa of course hosted the 2010 World Cup, and both Cape Town and Durban were venue cities. Cape Town was the cite of the Netherlands-Urugay semifinal, while Durban was the site of the semifinal between Germany and Spain.
