#GameChangingBirmingham

We are a proud to be an official partner of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, host of the largest athletes’ village as well as being the official venue for hockey and squash and an Official Partner of the Birmingham 2022 Queens Baton Relay – International Leg.

Game-changers disrupt the status quo, make a step change or a switch to change the game. With the focus on our city and region next year with the Games, there has never been a better time for us to work together to show the world #GameChangingBirmingham. 

There is momentum building and at the recent Invest Midlands panel session, which included Ian Reid, CEO of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, as well as the University of Birmingham and other regional stakeholders and business summarised, comments included: “putting Birmingham and the region on the map”, “pride in our region, company and the Games”, “the collaboration that the Games will bring about and that we can continue to develop” and “ the celebrations, the feeling and the power it has to drive change.” TheBusinessDesk.com has a great write up on the panel session. 

From boosting jobs and investment, to promoting Birmingham and the West Midlands’ national and international reputation, the University of Birmingham is dedicated to building a lasting legacy from the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. We want to work with businesses who support #GameChangingBirmingham.
