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.

India will not boycott the 2022 Commonwealth Games. They will attend in full force. They also announced their intentions to bid for 2026 or 2030 edition of the games.

 

India is now set to bid for 2026 Commonwealth Games, 2030 Asian Games, 2032 Summer Olympics

I suspect India will be bringing back the pairs events as an opportunity to boost their medal tally at the 2022 Games.

What a joke. I wonder what they will do for 2030? Canada will likely host and has not proposed shooting as a sport (I sent this is a reminder to the Hamilton bid committee but they won't budge.)

Any inside knowledge you can share as to the sports we could expect to see on their bid? (Anything different than 2022)

It'll be mostly mixed team events from what I hear. So even taken to it's extreme there will only be 26 shooting events vs. 19 that was present in 2018. 36 events were present in 2010.

Nothing different than in 2022. THe 16 core sports + 3x3 basketball, cricket (women) + cycling track + diving and beach volleyball. Diving would be held in Toronto, at the Pan Am Venue, nice legacy left from those games.

 

In 2010, they did propose a soccer tournament (something new), but that is not in this proposal.

Football would’ve been nice. I wouldn’t mind seeing lacrosse added as a nod to the native peoples of Canada, or another more common “American” sport.
