Gold Coast games would cost a billion

The cost of a Gold Coast commonwealth games might reach a billion dollars, Premier Anna Bligh said, but it’s unclear who would pay.

Only one other city has put in an application- Abuja, the capital of Nigeria- but the Queensland state government still will pay 11 million in lobbying efforts.

Premier Bligh said that the cost would be spread between the local council, state and federal levels of government. But we will have to wait until 2011 to see which city won the right to put on the games, in 2018.
