The Commonwealth Games Federation [CGF] Coordination Commission has predicted a phenomenal event ahead of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games in the West Midlands, United Kingdom.
The pronouncement was made yesterday, December 02 after the Coordination Commission [CoCom] delegation visited a number of key Birmingham 2022 venues including; Alexander Stadium and Sandwell Aquatics Centre.
“The CGF Coordination Commission is impressed by the level of detail we have heard from the Birmingham 2022 Partnership across a very busy agenda,” said CGF CoCom Bruce Robertson.
“The Organising Committee has done an excellent job of bringing in key individuals with deep previous Games experience. This has led not just to efficiencies in planning and delivery, but perspectives that have been critical to the successful management of the unique realities of the past few years.
With the London 2012 Olympics and the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the UK is blessed with a generation of truly world-leading expertise across all Games functions.
From a community perspective, I have been particularly pleased to hear of the growing interest and excitement in the Games which is clearly illustrated by the very impressive ticket sales and the number of volunteer applications.
There are always challenges in the final stages of delivering a major event and Birmingham 2022 will be no different but we are confident this will be a phenomenal edition of the Games and will showcase the very best of Commonwealth Sport across the region and around the globe.”
The 2022 Commonwealth Games, officially known as the XXII Commonwealth Games and commonly known as Birmingham 2022 – an international multi-sport event for members of the Commonwealth will be held in Birmingham, England from July 28 to August 08, 2022.
