I think you are referring to this:http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/41525305

Birmingham's bid is not FULLY compliant-and the CGF is waiting to see if the government will stump up any money. Our money.
'The cost of staging the event is expected to be at least 750m, which would be the most expensive sports event in Britain since the London 2012 Olympics.
Describing its plan as a "compelling and low-risk bid", a Birmingham 2022 spokesperson said: "We expected a period of discussion and negotiation with the CGF following submission and we await further clarification from the CGF about the next steps."
Birmingham's proposal to create the UK's largest permanent athletics stadium, supplemented by four indoor arenas, is central to its bid.


Good luck with that.

I was astonished to hear on the news the other day that we dont have a venue big enough in the Midlands to hold the cycling events and they may have to toake place in Manchester or London, embarrasing or what?

Yes perhaps why not, it would be a source of income for them , but I'm sure all this has been sorted out venue wise
