The South African bid committee for the Commonwealth Games on Wednesday revealed the logo that would represent Durban as a potential host city for the 2022 Games.

Chief Executive Officer of the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee, Tubby Reddy, urged all South Africans to show their support for the bid by joining the conversation and sharing their messages of solidarity and inspiration on Twitter and Facebook.

“Sport is deeply rooted in South Africa’s history,” he said.

“Over the years it has been a catalyst in creating a spirit of togetherness within our democracy and hosting major sporting events has greatly contributed to our socio-economic development,” Reddy added.
