About The Project
During the year 2022, the Commonwealth Games comes to the Midlands, and is centred around the Alexander Stadium, just a few miles from our community.
Even with so much exposure to the Games, residents from our disadvantaged communities may feel that they are excluded from joining in the fun and excitement, so we have put together a sporting programme that includes 29 different sporting activities, including all of those included in the Commonwealth Games 2022.
We are partnering with many sports clubs/associations/National Governing Bodies to offer the activities, as the sporting resources in Nechells are exceptionally limited, and we will overcome the usual access restrictions by driving and chaperoning the children and young people out of Nechells, to the clubs’ own facilities. This is a very exciting programme that will hopefully include taking the participants to see the sports that they have begun playing at the Commonwealth Games.
Return On Investment
The main benefit of this product is the health benefits, in a poor area, and the introduction to sport for many children and young people, with the access to the Commonwealth Games.
Supporting this project provides many opportunities for your company to engage with a wide variety of sporting activities, young people and sports clubs/NGB’s. Whether
logos on shirts or your staff volunteering, there will be plenty to get you involved with one or more of the sports.
