Birmingham 2022 is teasing a big announcement they’ll make tomorrow. I would imagine this will be the final sports program (complete with events, and/or schedule), motto, or some big celebrity endorse

Good for the Colonial Games.

Birmingham has been chosen over Liverpool to be England's candidate for hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Birmingham now needs to prove to the treasury that bringing the games to the West Midlands will be value for money as 75% of the costs will come from the taxpayer.

 

I didn't know about Durban 2022. What a mess. It doesnt look good for any future possible olympic bid from South Africa.

 

By 2022, five of the last six CWG will have been held in either Great Brtian or Australia. I guess the games are stuck between these two countries with the occasional host from Canada or East Asia.

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games organising committee have announced the final list of sports and venues for the Games. The major change compared to Gold Coast 2018 is that Beach Volleyball, Shooting and 5x5 Basketball have been dropped and replaced by Judo, Basketball 3x3 and Wheelchair Basketball

 

These are the sports:

  • Aquatics - Diving, Swimming (Para)
  • Athletics (Para)
  • Badminton
  • Basketball 3x3
  • Boxing
  • Cycling - Track (Para), Mountain Bike, Road
  • Field Hockey
  • Gymnastics - Artisitc, Rhythmic
  • Judo
  • Lawn Bowls
  • Netball
  • Rugby Sevens
  • Squash
  • Table Tennis
  • Triathlon (Para)
  • Weightlifting (Powerlifting)
  • Wheelchair Basketball 3x3
  • Wrestling

The venues for the games will be spread within Birmingham and the West Midlands region, with only 1 venue (London Olympic Velodrome) falling outside of the West Midlands.

  • The Birmingham city centre venues include the National Exhibition Centre and attached Genting Arena, Birmingham Arena, Symphony Hall and Victoria Square.
  • Other Birmingham venues include University of Birmingham, Alexander Stadium, Villa Park Stadium.
  • The West Midlands venues include the planned Sandwell Aquatics Centre, Coventry Arena, Royal Leamington Spa Bowls Club, Sutton Coldfield Park, Cannock Chase.

I'm impressed by this plan, mainly as only 1 venue (Sandwell Aquatics Centre) will have to be newly built and other venues will be upgraded at the University and Alexander stadium which will become a stadium worthy of being the home of British Athletics. It's a shame Shooting was unable to make the program, the National Shooting Centre is in Surrey and had been proposed but it is a few hours drive away, but since it is only an optional sport the Gommonwealth Games Federation surely saw it's exclusion coming!

Happy to see Para Table Tennis return. Beach Volleyball is whatever, it was popular in the Gold Coast, but the strength of commonwealth pairs isn’t great. I’m really excited to see women’s cricket join the program. I really just don’t understand leaving shooting off the program. It’s one of the most competitive commonwealth sports, and it’s a historic competitive, just a bad and sad move on the organizing committees part.

I had heard rumors of this a few weeks ago. I’ve also heard that as many as 30 countries may decide to support their boycott. Birmingham could be the end of the Commonwealth Games as we know them. The decision to omit shooting was not met well by a good amount of CGF members from what I’ve heard. The general assembly this year could be very interesting.
