A total of 19 different sports will be staged on, with the world’s best athletes set to compete across 11 days of competition.
Women’s cricket T20, basketball 3×3, wheelchair basketball 3×3 and mixed synchronised diving will all debut in Birmingham, with the schedule set to includes two ‘Super Sundays’ for spectators to look forward to, with the second set to be the ultimate showcase of women’s sport.
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 and from today Birmingham 2022 ticket accounts can now be set up.
