The full event schedule for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games has been released on Tuesday (15 June) allowing sports fans to see the detail of exactly which events will be held in each of the 286 sessions that will feature from 28 July to 8 August next year.
With 19 different sports and eight Para sports, Birmingham 2022 has a rich and varied programme and there will be medal moments on every single day of competition.
The schedule includes two ‘Super Sundays’ for spectators to look forward to, with the second billed as the ultimate showcase for women’s sport.
Birmingham 2022 is set to have the largest integrated Para sport programme in history with eight sports: Para athletics, Para cycling, Para powerlifting, Para swimming, Para table tennis, Para triathlon, and wheelchair basketball 3x3, alongside Para lawn bowls.
