COMMONWEALTH GAMES AUSTRALIA ENTER INTO EXCLUSIVE DIALOGUE WITH CGF AND VICTORIA FOR THE 2026 COMMONWEALTH GAMES

 

Commonwealth Games Australia has signed a Heads of Agreement with the Victorian Government and the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) to enter exclusive negotiations to bring the 2026 Commonwealth Games to Victoria with a vision to deliver a model for the Games unprecedented in the event’s history.

A regionally focused Commonwealth Games would expand the capacity of Victorian regional cities for major events, tourism, arts, culture and sport.

Not only would the events mean new economic opportunities through event infrastructure – it would deliver the double benefit of creating local jobs and housing.

The Games would also drive participation in sports at both a community and professional level, throughout the State.
