Our story

Commonwealth Games England (CGE) leads and manages the participation of the English team at the Commonwealth Games working closely with each sport's National Governing Body, our funding partner Sport England, and the Games’ Organising Committee.

England is one of only six countries to have taken part in every edition of the Commonwealth Games and Commonwealth Youth Games and, lying at the epicentre of what was once the British Empire, England occupies a uniquely close relationship to the Commonwealth Games.

CGE has been responsible for preparing and delivering the England Team at the Commonwealth Games and Commonwealth Youth Games since their inception in 1930.

Our core purposes are to lead and manage the participation of the England Team at the Commonwealth Games and Commonwealth Youth Games; to help in delivering excellent performance environments; to represent England effectively within the CGF, and to raise the profile and reinforce the value, reputation and future of what we believe is a great sporting event.
