The Proud Host City

Our mission for the city

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games provides a catalyst to help achieve our aspiration of a fair and thriving city for all.

Our aim is to leverage our role in hosting the Games for the benefit of our diverse city; to strengthen connections between communities; to build on partnerships old and new and sustain community involvement.

Our resilient and vibrant city will use the Games to help people lead healthier lives. In Europe’s youngest city, we will promote and champion positive mental and physical health.

We will use the Games as a platform to advance our ambitions in active travel and better connectivity for a cleaner, greener Birmingham. From our vast network of canals to our open green spaces, our unrivalled setting will flourish on the world stage.

Through the transformative regeneration of Perry Barr and districts across the city, to providing training, volunteering and employment opportunities we will help our communities and businesses prosper.

The Alexander Stadium will be redeveloped into a world-class venue. Embedded in the community from grassroots sports to Commonwealth champions, the Alexander will be their home.

We will rise to the challenge, be bold in our aspirations and strive for a better Birmingham. We’re the birthplace of the Balti and the homeland of heavy metal, our passion and progression have no limit. We’re on a revival, come and witness our journey.

Together in our homes, schools and communities, we will proudly deliver a global display of sporting and cultural endeavour in the heart of the UK.
