share close

Registration for tickets and the full event schedule for Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games is now live on the game’s website. It includes details of sessions for Lawn Bowls and Para Bowls at Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa as well as the road race, which starts and finishes at St Nicholas Park in Warwick.

Residents from the West Midlands have priority to apply in the ballot from July, with the general sale ballot opening in September. Ticket prices for the Games start from £8 for those under 16 and £15 for adults.

Women’s cricket T20, basketball 3×3, wheelchair basketball 3×3 and mixed synchronised diving will all debut in Birmingham. The schedule includes two ‘Super Sundays’, with the second set to be the ultimate showcase of women’s sport.

The events schedule allows sports fans to see the details of the 286 sessions that will feature at next summer’s Games. 

Matt Kidson, Director of Sport for Birmingham 2022, said: “With 19 different sports and eight Parasports, we have such a rich and varied programme and there will be medal moments on every single day of competition. 

“We also have an exciting mix of venues, with established facilities like the NEC and Arena Birmingham, beautiful parks like St Nicholas Park and West Park and exciting redevelopments like the Alexander Stadium, where the progress in the last 12 months has been phenomenal.” 

As well as providing new information about the schedule and revealing details about tickets, in recent weeks organisers have also given updates on crucial venues, and attention has now turned to the Alexander Stadium in the Perry Barr area of Birmingham. 

The stadium, which will host the opening and closing ceremonies for the Games and the athletics events, is being wholly redeveloped ahead of Birmingham 2022, and a considerable amount of progress has been made on the project. 

Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Culture, Tourism and Leisure Councillor Liam Bartlett commented:

“Birmingham 2022 is over a year away, and as registration for the ticket ballot opens, it would be great to see families from across Warwick District take up this fantastic opportunity, both to see world-class sport and also encourage the next generation of sports fans to take part in sport and possibly participate at future games.”
