A joint bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games would be considered by Games chiefs.
The South African city of Durban was stripped of hosting rights to the event earlier this week, after failing to meet selection criteria for the role.
A number of prominent English cities have expressed interest in filling the vacant position - with Birmingham, Liverpool, London and Manchester all having indicated a willingness to step in.
Commonwealth Games Federation chief David Grevemberg said officials were looking to make a decision quickly and would consider a joint bid.
"We are interested in looking at different delivery models and part of our strategic plan is to look at more affordable and appealing structures for hosting major events," said Grevemberg.
