Who We Are
Commonwealth Games Australia (CGA) is a member-based organisation (our members are the National Sporting Organisations (NSO’s) representing the sports participating in Commonwealth Games), which receives no Federal Government funding and exists to administer, control and coordinate the participation of program sports and their respective athletes and officials in the Commonwealth Games. However, we do much more than this!
We relish the role of being both a leader and collaborative delivery agency in the Australian and international Commonwealth Games movement and more generally the Australian sporting sector. We see ourselves as an open, collaborative, supportive and high performing element of the Australian and International Commonwealth Games movement. Our DNA is based on being “first among equals” in everything we do!
We are committed to accurately identifying the specific needs of our members, partners and stakeholders and to developing/delivering systems, programs and support designed specifically to meet these needs.
To inspire and unite all Australians through the pursuit of sporting excellence

HIGH PERFORMANCE PARTNERS
Commonwealth Games Australia is committed to working with partner sports and high performance partners to ensure the best possible preparation for Australian athletes to compete at the Commonwealth Games.
Commonwealth Games Australia would like to acknowledge our partnerships with the AIS and APC.
In 2016, Commonwealth Games Australia announced a new $2 million partnership with the AIS to assist athlete preparation for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
The additional $2 million contribution to the AIS funding program will go directly to athletes to ensure the best preparation possible for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Commonwealth Games Australia is also proud to partner with the Australian Paralympic Committee for Gold Coast 2018. More than 50 para-athletes are expected to be part of the Australian team for Gold Coast 2018.
