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.

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 Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and Paralympics Australia.

In 2016, Commonwealth Games Australia announced a new $2 million partnership with the AIS to assist athlete preparation for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The additional $2 million contribution to the AIS funding program went directly to athletes to ensure the best preparation possible for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Commonwealth Games Australia was also proud to partner with Paralympics Australia for Gold Coast 2018. More than 50 Para-sport team members represented Australia at the Games.
