Birmingham 2022 has released the full event schedule for the Commonwealth Games, the biggest multi-sport event to be staged in the UK for a decade, following on from the success of London 2012 and Glasgow 2014.
This full schedule details exactly which events will be held in each of the 286 sessions that will feature at next summer’s Games, providing key information to help with planning and preparation. The schedule is available to view on the Birmingham 2022 website at: https://www.birmingham2022.com/the-games/schedule
The sporting action starts on Friday 29 July, with all five events which saw Scottish medal success on day one of Gold Coast 2018 confirmed for the opening day in Birmingham. Day one will also see first ever appearances for Basketball 3×3, Wheelchair Basketball 3×3 and T20 Cricket at a Commonwealth Games. Monday 1 August will see the return of Judo to the Games for the first time since Team Scotland’s incredible 13 medal haul at Glasgow 2014, a day that will also see the first Lawn Bowls finals and a chance for a Scottish defence of the Men’s Triples title.
A packed schedule across all 19 sports on the programme continues right up until the final day, with finals in Badminton, Diving, Hockey, Squash and Table Tennis concluding just hours before the Closing Ceremony on Monday 8 August.
Friends, family and supporters can also start to plan their visit to the Games with registration now open for the ticket ballot. With limited opportunities to attend live sports events in recent months, a huge amount of interest in tickets for the Games is expected, especially as the sports programme is the biggest in Commonwealth history. From today Birmingham 2022 ticket accounts can now be set up.

Tickets will start from £8 for under-16s and from £15 for adults. There will also be £22 tickets available for every session of the Games, including medal sessions, and for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. The local ballot will open in July for residents of the host region, while the main ticket ballot starts in September.
