Join Birmingham on the World Stage this Summer
Countdown to Birmingham Commonwealth Games
The Pandemic brought our favourite sporting events to a devastating halt. But now we’re back and Birmingham is certainly back with a bang as we welcome the Commonwealth Games to the UK’s Second City this summer.
Here's why the Birmingham Commonwealth Games is a once in a lifetime moment that simply cannot miss:
1. Sport, sport and then some more sport
We’ve missed our dose of sport: those hold onto your seat moments, heart-racing finishes and euphoric victories. What better way to make up for lost time with 286 sessions of sport across 19 different sports, all packed into an electric 11 days.
2. See the World’s greatest all in the same week
Don’t read about the world record breakers in the history books, seem them at their best with your own eyes with a seat in state of the art stadiums. The world’s most renowned athletes will be gathering in Birmingham this summer. Do you really want to miss your chance to see them at their best? We didn’t think so.
3. Cheer on Your Nation
Birmingham is a buzzing hub of diverse cultures and backgrounds. We are so excited to welcome guests from around the globe to our amazing city. In total, 72 teams will compete this summer. Your home team need your support to push them over the finishing line.
After a successful day of cheering your team all the way to the winner’s podium, relax and unwind with our menu of intercontinental flavours at the Hillscourt restaurant.
4. Meet Perry - The Official Mascot of Birmingham 2022
The games Mascot could not been anymore Brummie. He’s a bull - an animal intertwined with Birmingham’s identity and inspired by our famous Bullring shopping centre. But did you know that the medal around his neck is a nod to Birmingham’s prestigious Jewellery Quarter? Both shopping destinations you won’t want to skip.
Take a selfie with Perry at the games or take home your very own Perry on sale at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games shop.
