Gold Coast May Win Commonwealth Games 2018 Bid and $500 Million in Cash

Gold Coast is famous for a lot of things which are quite related to each other. It all begins with the beautiful sandy beaches, the tall skyscrapers, the golden sun and of course the never ending list of nightclubs. Gold Coast has almost become the party capital of Asia Pacific, if there were such a title.

Now, the city may also gain a $500 million boost if it wins the 2018 Commonwealth Games bid after a no-show by its main competitor, the Sri Lankan city of Hambantota . 4 new indoor complexes are to be built at a cost of $400-$500 millions.

71 delegates of the Commonwealth Games Association seemed really happy about gold Coast and what it had to offer to host the CWG 2018. CGA patron Prince Edward complemented Gold Coast to no end, and the sporting complexes, the infrastructural boost to the city, and the media publicity will only help bring more tourists to the city. That would also mean more business to the hundreds of nightclubs and bars that operate from the city. It could be a great place indeed, if it is chosen as the venue for CWG 2018.
