Birmingham ready for Commonwealth Games kick-off

A decade and a day on from the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, England will again play host to a festival of sport with athletes coming from all corners of the globe to show off their talents in world-leading facilities and in front of sell-out crowds.

Since December 2017 when Birmingham was announced as the host city, Sport England has been working to ensure those facilities, and Games as a whole, have a lasting impact on both the West Midlands and the wider population.

It has invested £35 million into the Games, on everything from ensuring key venues such as the Sandwell Aquatics Centre are not just fit for the Games but also long afterwards as a community facility, to providing support for the School Games and the Daily Mile to spread the impact of the Games to children and young people across the country.
