Birmingham 2022

Birmingham 2022 will bring together 6,500 athletes and officials in one of the youngest cities in Europe, cheered on by a diverse, welcoming and sport-loving city. With 95% of the competition venues already in place, Birmingham 2022 has a strong platform for a successful Games with the existing Alexander Stadium at their centre. Since the Games were awarded in December 2017, the city has hosted the IAAF World Indoor Athletics Championships, Badminton Open Championships and Gymnastics World Cup. It has hosted more European and World championships than any other city in the UK.

Alongside the sporting action, a cultural programme will showcase Birmingham 2022’s urban, contemporary and digital vision – much of it hosted in the city’s streets and squares. An Urban Festival will embrace youth and diversity: music, free running, skateboarding, BMX, street dance and sport climbing.

The full sports programme was announced in August 2019 with Women’s T20 Cricket, Beach Volleyball and Para Table Tennis confirmed, bringing the total number of sports to 19. With eight para sports and 135 women’s medal events, Birmingham 2022 is set to have the largest ever female and para sport programme in history.
