At the 2022 Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, Team England will compete against the 72 nations and territories of the Commonwealth across 19 different sports.
Within those sports, there will be more medals available for women than men and the largest para sport programme in Commonwealth Games history with eight para sports on the programme: athletics, wheelchair basketball, cycling, lawn bowls, para powerlifting, swimming, table tennis and triathlon.
Women’s cricket T20, basketball 3x3, wheelchair basketball 3x3 and mixed synchronised diving will all debut in Birmingham.
The biggest multi-sport event to be staged in the UK for a decade will showcase 11 days of competition with 286 sessions of sport.
The sporting action at Birmingham 2022 will start in style on Friday 29 July with medal sessions on the first day confirmed for swimming, track cycling, gymnastics and triathlon, all sports in which Team England has reigning Commonwealth champions.
Mark England OBE, Team England Chef de Mission for Birmingham 2022, said: “The Birmingham 2022 sports programme is incredibly exciting for us as the host team. We plan to be medal competitive from Day 1 and deliver inspiring moments throughout the 11 days of competition. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Team England athletes to perform on their home stage in Birmingham will, I’ve no doubt, provide countless memorable moments for the home support."
