Get set for the Games - Birmingham

‘Get Set for the Games’ was the official Community and Business Readiness Campaign for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

As Birmingham City Council prepared to host the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, it required a significant collaborative effort to keep the city and region moving, safe and alive with a celebratory atmosphere.

Under this campaign, we informed residents and businesses, in good time, of the temporary measures required to deliver the largest event ever held in the region as Birmingham and the West Midlands hosted 11 days of sport, across 15 competition venues.

From making sure our streets are clean and regular services are operating efficiently, to keeping the network moving. Our collaborative efforts ensured the city continued to operate effectively during the Games period.

We were proud to have created ‘Get Set for the Games’ in collaboration with our Games Partners including the Birmingham 2022 Organising Committee and Transport for West Midlands.
