Summer of Sports

Held from 28 July until 8 August 2022, the Games will be packed full of sport with around 4,500 athletes from 72 nations and territories participating.

There will also be a six-month cultural festival taking place across the West Midlands, making Birmingham 2022 the largest sporting and cultural event to take place in the UK since the 2012 London Olympics.
