Queen's Baton Relay

The 16th official Queen’s Baton Relay will arrive in the city ahead of the Opening Ceremony of the Games on 28 July 2022. The first Queen’s Baton Relay took place in 1958 in Cardiff and since then has become a tradition and curtain raiser unique to the Commonwealth Games. The Baton will depart on a 300-day journey around all Commonwealth nations and territories; containing a message from Her Majesty the Queen to the athletes, to be read aloud at the Opening Ceremony to mark the start of the Games.

We are working with the Organising Committee on exciting campaigns and major moments like the Queen’s Baton Relay in the build up to the Games. Plans on this will be unveiled in the coming months so keep following all the Games channels to find out how you can get involved!
