Commonwealth Games Federation & CGF Partnerships
Sport underpins the unique connections and friendships which bring together a third of the world’s population as citizens of the 72 nations and territories of the Commonwealth. For more than eight decades, the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) has taken a global leadership role in uniting the Commonwealth’s athletes, citizens and communities through the transformative and connecting power of sport. The CGF is the organisation responsible for the strategic direction of the Commonwealth Games, Commonwealth Youth Games and associated projects and initiatives across the Commonwealth Sport Movement. Working with 72 Commonwealth Games Associations (CGAs) across six regions, the CGF creates peaceful, sustainable and prosperous communities across the Commonwealth.
CGF Partnerships (CGFP), established in 2017 as a joint venture between the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) and Lagardère Sports, seeks to identify sustainable and long-term commercial partnerships that will also benefit the delivery of future editions of the Commonwealth Games. CGFP has embedded resources integrated in the Birmingham 2022 delivery teams, who bring previous Games expertise and generate commercial income for the Games through corporate partnerships, TV rights, licensing and merchandise. CGFP is also supporting future host cities in assessing the feasibility of hosting the Games, as well as supporting the CGF with the development of the Commonwealth Sport Movement and CGAs with developing their brand, marketing and revenue generating capabilities.
