What are The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games?
The Commonwealth Games, often referred to as the Friendly Games, is an international multi-sport event involving athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations.
The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will bring people together, be they athletes from countries far and wide, or communities from across the city and region. As they prepare for this iconic celebration of sport, they embrace the Commonwealth values of humanity, equality and destiny in everything they do.
Hockey, the intense, fast-paced sport has been part of the Commonwealth Games since 1998 and will see teams dribble, sprint and tackle their way to victory over 60 minutes of on-pitch action.
As the crack of hockey sticks rings from intense tackles and long distance passes, this powerfully energetic event will see some of the world’s greatest teams battle for supremacy at the University of Birmingham.
