Our legacy

In 2022, Birmingham will erupt with a celebration of culture, sport, and unity. Our vibrant and diverse city will flourish on the world stage, showcasing our great city. While we respectfully reflect on an unprecedented period of mental and physical hardship, the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games provides a platform to present the very best of the people who make our villages, towns and cities, the beating heart of this great country.

For we are a city of makers, of kind hearts and never-quitters. We will surprise you. We will show you an array of cultures, faiths, and history. We welcome the opportunities hosting a global event like the Games affords individuals, communities, and businesses to flourish. We will use this event to recharge, rise, grow, and succeed, advancing our ambition for a fair and thriving region for all.

Achieving a legacy is important for every global sporting event; for Birmingham and the West Midlands that legacy is underway. The Games is a significant milestone in the world’s road to recovery. It is a moment of reflection, celebration, and inspiration.

Beyond 11 days of sport this is a once in a generation opportunity to reconnect. From improved active travel and infrastructure, to renewed partnerships and community involvement. We will ensure the Games leaves Birmingham with legacies for years to come.

It’s time for us to step out of the shadows and to Be Bold, Be Birmingham.
