Could Scotland & England withdraw from the Commonwealth Games?

BBC has posted an article stating that both the Scottish and English teams are concerned over the athletes village that has been built for the Commonwealth Games. With the Games beginning on October 3rd, the Scottish officials have said that they have found their accommodation to be  “unsafe and unfit for human habitation” and that the athletes village requires urgent work to be carried out.


However, it is not just the Scottish and English teams that have incurred problems within the athletes village, the New Zealand, Northern Irish and Canadian teams have described the village as “unliveable”. The New Zealand team decided to seek accommodation elsewhere. Wow!


With the village open this Thursday to 7000 officials and athletes, they really need to have everything sorted and put in place to avoid major disruptions.
