Birmingham unveils indoor venues for Commonwealth Games bid

The National Exhibition Centre (NEC) will be one of four indoor arenas at the heart of Birmingham’s bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Boxing, judo, table tennis and freestyle wrestling will be hosted at the vast venue – which is the largest exhibition venue in the UK.

Halls 1, 4 and 5 have been selected to create a “compact multi-sport venue requiring minimal build requirements”.

Other venues being put forward are the Barclaycard Arena, to host the gymnastics events; Genting Arena to stage badminton; and Symphony Hall to host weightlifting and para powerlifting.

According to bid organisers, the four venues will provide spectators with “more than 500,000 opportunities” to watch action during the Games.

Around 95 per cent of venues being earmarked for the Games have already been built.

Ian Ward, deputy leader of Birmingham City Council, said identifying the venues to fulfil Commonwealth Games’ technical requirements was a “rigorous process”.

“These world-class indoor arenas are central to our bid and contribute to the 95 per cent of Birmingham’s venues that are already available,” he added. “With a heritage of delivering world-class international events these four venues will provide over 50 days of competition for fans to enjoy during the Birmingham 2022 Games.”
