In December 2017, England was awarded the rights to host the next Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022.
Sitting at the heart of the UK, and standing for the diversity of the Commonwealth, Birmingham is perfectly positioned to attract people to the Games and to ensure that the benefits of hosting extend from the city and region, to the UK and the Commonwealth.
One of the youngest cities in Europe, Birmingham is vibrant and richly diverse. It is well known for always offering a warm welcome to visitors from around the world.
Birmingham has a wealth of existing sports venues, arenas and conference halls that are ideal for hosting sport during the Games. With 95 per cent of the competition venues already in place, Birmingham 2022’s Games will be both prudent and innovative.
