The Birmingham 2022 mascot will be a global icon for the Games.  It should represent the identity, heritage, and culture of the Commonwealth Games, Birmingham and the West Midlands, and embody everything the city and region stand for: youthful, diverse, dynamic and creative, always looking to innovate and move forward.  

We are looking for children across the country to design their own mascot and be in with a chance of winning family tickets to the Opening Ceremony on 28th July 2022.  

The winning design will inspire the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games’ official mascot.

Teaching Resources

To accompany the competition, we’ve designed some lesson plans for Key Stage 1 and 2 (age 5-11) and Key Stage 3 (age 11-14), to inspire children to design their own mascot and learn more about their important role in major sporting events.

The tailored teaching resources are suitable for classroom learning or home schooling, and with teacher or parent support. Mascot designs created as part of these lessons can then be submitted by parents/guardians to the Birmingham 2022 mascot competition.
