About Commonwealth Games Australia


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 Sport 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.
