The 2022 Commonwealth Games will no longer take place in Durban, South Africa, the BBC understands.
South Africas sports minister Fikile Mbalula last month indicated the city may not be able to host the event because of financial constraints.
"We gave it our best shot but we can't go beyond. If the country says we don't have this money, we can't," he said.
Everton has offered to host the event.
