The organizers of the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games have revealed the schedule of the event. Fans can now see each detail of every event among 286 sessions that will feature at the games. Women’s cricket T20, basketball 3×3, wheelchair basketball 3×3, and mixed synchronized diving will all debut in Birmingham. The schedule is also set to include two ‘Super Sundays’ for spectators to look forward to, the second being the ultimate showcase of women’s sport.
Team England hopefuls were at the event release of the 2022 Commonwealth Games. They visited the Alexander Stadium, an important venue for the games currently undergoing a £72 million refurbishment due for completion in the Spring of 2022.
As well as providing new information about the schedule and revealing details about tickets, in recent weeks organizers have also given updates on key venues with attention turning to the Alexander Stadium in the Perry Barr area of Birmingham. The stadium, which will host the opening and closing ceremonies for the Games, as well as the athletics events, is being completely redeveloped ahead of Birmingham 2022 and a huge amount of progress has been made on the project.
A lot of interest is expected for the games’ tickets as live sports make their comeback after almost 15 months of shutdown. The 2022 event will be the biggest in the history of the Commonwealth Games. Courtesy of the magnitude of the event, tickets will be highly desirable as accounts for them can be set up now. Nigel Huddleston MP, Minister for Sport and Tourism, visited Birmingham earlier this month to help launch the search for 13,000 volunteers for the Games.
“Birmingham 2022 is fast approaching and it’s exciting that fans can now start planning which sporting events they want to see next year. With children’s ticket prices starting at £8, I hope that families from across the West Midlands will take up this once-in-a-generation opportunity to see the best athletes in the world compete on their doorstep.”
