Thread: 2026 Commonwealth Games

    2026 Commonwealth Games

    After Victoria in Australia pulled out, it did get suggested that Birmingham could host it again. But, the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, recently said no to it. While the Commonwealth Games Federation are now looking for a host, and probably delaying it until 2027, the Olympic and Commonwealth Games triathlon champion Alistair Brownlee has now told The Yorkshire Post about his idea for it. He was recently elected chair of the European Olympic Committee's Athlete Commission and believes the 2026 Commonwealth Games should be held in the north of England. He believed Gateshead could host the athletics, Liverpool host the gymnastics, Sheffield host the swimming, Manchester host the cycling, Leeds host the cricket and Hull host the rugby sevens. James Mason, CEO of the West and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, has said he believed it to be a good idea and he cited the Tour de France Grand Depart which was held in Yorkshire in 2014.
